This is just wonderful. No really, I mean it, I think this is fantastic. Russell Brand and Geri Halliwell, the very best Spice Girl? That’s amazing, that’s what this is.

The two reportedly started dating after this summer’s Olympics, where they both performed in the closing ceremony. Well, after they both performed in the closing ceremony and then Russell broke up with his girlfriend so he could get with Geri (and her friends, natch).

Here, just check out the lovely details:

One close pal of Russell said: “Things are getting very serious between them — they’re a proper couple now. They had met several times in the past, but really got to know each other during the Olympics. People thought Russell was joking at the time, when he said he had a crush on Geri all over again, but it was true. They just clicked — they have so much in common. He is spending so much more time in London just to be with her.”

But wait, there’s also this guy who saw Russell and Geri out on a date:

He said: “I thought it was the most random thing ever to see Russell Brand of all people in a place like that — until my wife pointed out he was with a Spice Girl. They seemed like they were having a really great time, holding hands and chatting — it was 100 per cent obvious they were a couple. Geri was holding his hand the same way I hold my wife’s. It was so cute.”

You guys! How sweet is this? I think these two would make a darling couple. And what makes this all especially darling is how Katy Perry must be taking this news. She just got dumped by John Mayer and now her ex is dating a Spice Girl. Just take a moment to think about how incredibly bad that would sting. It’s ok if you LOLed.
