She wants another baby; Henry Beckwith didn't

Geri Halliwell stood by toyboy Henry Beckwith when friends told her to kick him to the kerb.

So you’d have thought that their two-and-a-half-year relationship would’ve stood the test of time.

But sadly, the former Spice Girl was forced to dump million-heir Henry, who’s 7 years her junior, days before her 39th birthday.

Geri’s been keeping tight-lipped over her heartbreak, but pals tell Now she sent him packing because he didn’t want to have a baby with her.

Geri forgave Henry when he was caught holding hands in a cab with his friend Helen Fenwick last year as he insisted he hadn’t cheated.

‘But turning 39 has made her think things over,’ says a close pal.

‘She’s painfully aware that if she’s going to give her five-year-old daughter Bluebell a brother or sister, she doesn’t have long.’
