The Spice Girls’ upcoming reunion tour may be in jeopardy because of a health scare. According to a British newspaper, Geri Halliwell’s 18-month old daughter is sick with chicken pox and terrified by the idea of risking the health of her band members and their children the Ginger Spice has flown her kiddo back to the U.K. to be looked after by her family.

A source close to the girls’ band told the Sun that Halliwell was specifically concerned about the virus spreading to Beckham boys Cruz and Romeo with whom little Bluebell had been playing around all the time as their moms rehearsed.

“Bluebell has played a lot with Victoria’s sons Cruz and Romeo lately. Mel B’s baby Angel could get the bug too, and she is only eight months old,” claims the source.

The girl band – which comprises of Melanie C (Sporty Spice), Brown (Scary Spice), Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) and Geri Halliwell – split in 2000 two years after Geri left citing “differences” between the band members. Since then the group hasn’t performed together on one stage.

“The Return of the Spice Girls” kicks off in Vancouver, Canada on Dec 2. The tour will support the band’s “Greatest Hits” album released on Nov 5.
