Girl Finds Old Photo With ‘Baby Spice’ at Spice Girls Concert, Finds Out It’s Blake Lively
24-year-old Californian Bria Madrid recently found an old photo of herself attending a Spice Girls concert at 5 years old. However, she had never known that actress Blake Lively was standing next to her.
Madrid was sorting through some baby photos for her bridal shower, when she and her bridesmaids found the old photo.
“When I originally saw the picture, I thought the girl looked like Blake Lively but I didn’t think too much about it. But then everyone freaked out and said, ‘Bria, that’s Blake Lively!’ and I realized they were right!” she said, according to Buzzfeed.

Madrid told Buzzfeed that she had thought Lively was “Baby Spice” Emma Bunton at the time. Nevertheless, she thinks the old photo is amazing after having watched Lively in movies and on television shows, such as “Gossip Girls,” “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” and others.
