Exciting news for Spice Girls fans everywhere (i.e. everyone): Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, and Mel B have revealed they are officially getting back together. The trio announced in a video message that they will be be reforming under the name GEM (their combined initials) and celebrating the 20-year anniversary of "Wannabe" -- which made a fresh appearance this week as the anthem for the UN's 2020 Global Goals gender equality campaign.

"You've stood by us for 20 years, and we want to say a big thank you," Geri says in the short clip. "We've had our ups and downs, but you've always been there," Baby Spice adds.

Although no information has been officially shared on upcoming shows, leaks in tabloid newspapers suggest there will be a Hyde Park show in London next summer. "We want to celebrate and have a party and when we do, you're all invited," say GEM. We can't wait!
