When asked by UK reporters if the fling is actually happening, Geri happily responded: "Yes. It's been a whirlwind."
"Is he my ideal man? I'm choosy. I want someone who's trustworthy, sweet and kind."
Game on, Russell! Ginger Spice won't take just any old charming bloke, will she?
"All I want is to be in a loving relationship," the 40-year-old Spice Girl added.
Clearly things between Geri and Russ aren't as bad as yesterday's reports that they're already "cooling off" because Russell is too "intelligent" and "intense" for Geri.
Russell, 37, has been spotted getting cosy with Geri on a series of dates since they both performed at the London Olympics closing ceremony on August 12.
Geri reportedly kept her Russell fling secret from her fellow Spice Girls.
"I don't know what's going on. I know they get on really well," Sporty Spice Mel C told The Sun. "I'll have to quiz her on that one, the cheeky little minx!"
You know what they say if you wannabe my lover, you gotta get with my friends ...
