Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has heaped several praises on his wife, Geri Halliwell, and insisted that he did not marry her just because she was a Spice Girl. Instead, he asserted that the duo married because they loved each other.

The Briton made these remarks to answer all the reports that claimed that their relationship would not last long. However, he admitted that the two are very different people, and he thinks he would have never married Halliwell in his twenties.

The 49-year-old said he was too focused on making a name for himself in Formula 1 then and could not think of anything beyond the sport.

In a conversation with The Telegraph, Christian Horner said, “You know, life works in mysterious ways. I didn’t marry Geri because she’s a Spice Girl.” He added that the duo has been in love with each other for 10 years and happily married for seven.

While Horner admitted that he and Halliwell have very different personalities, he believes they have a solid relationship as they ‘compliment’ each other well.

When asked if he could have ever thought of marrying Halliwell in the 1990s, Horner replied with a chuckle, “God No.” He said that at that time, he did not have so much time on his hand to think that far as he was busy working hard to make a career in F1.
