The actress published a throwback photo on Instagram of herself dressed as Baby Spice at a Spice Girls concert in 1997, sporting Baby’s signature pigtails and a pair of incredible platform shoes.
Blake discovered the photo, in which she poses with a young Bria Madrid, after Bria posted the photo on Twitter.
“Found a picture when I was 5 at my first concert. #SpiceGirls and took a picture with a girl dressed up as Baby Spice who I just realized now was @blakelively,” Bria wrote.
Blake saw the Tweet and responded saying “My secret is out…” before uploading the photo to Instagram.

“Pretending to be someone else… since 1997 (Thanks @briaaamadrid for the photo of us at the Spice Girls concert. Sorry -not sorry- I tricked you into thinking I was @emmaleebunton)” Blake captioned her post.
She even tagged herself as Emma Bunton. Then the magic happened.
Emma, yes, the real Baby Spice commented: “So cute, you’re rocking those pigtails @blakelively.”
Blake lost. The. Plot.
“@emmaleebunton I’m officially ☠️☠️☠️☠️,” she wrote back. “Forever bowing down to you. ???????????? I cannot believe you know who I am. This will never be normal. ☠️????.”
As they say, once a Spice Girls fan, always a Spice Girls fan.
