Both Russell and Geri performed at the Olympic Games Closing Ceremonies where the initial sparks began to fly.
The two have apparently known each other since 2007, but it was their recent Olympic meet up when the two started their newfound romance.
But what about Russell's rumored girlfriend Isabella Brewster, you ask?
Well, she was just a side piece anyway, according to one source Hollyscoop talked to.
Russell and Geri have gone on at least one date to take in the sights of Hampton Court Palace and Geri’s daughter Bluebell even came along.
A source told UK tabloid The Sun, “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.”
After the Olympic closing ceremony, Russell reportedly said, “I’ve got a crush on Geri Halliwell – everything in the world is how it should be.”
Well, now they are reportedly dating, or a “proper couple” as one UK eyewitness called it, citing that they were “holding hands” and everything.
“They’ve exactly the same sense of humor and are serious about clean living,” says the source.
Geri is three years older than 37-year-old Russell, which is surprising, because Russell’s usual type is anyone who appears to be 24.
