Even Emma Bunton agrees.

When she was little, Blake Lively dressed up as Baby Spice to attend a Spice Girls concert. Because she's Blake Lively, her costume was so good she tricked legitimate Spice Girls fans.

This important information came to light when Twitter user Bria Madrid shared a snap of her at the concert, posing with Lively in full pigtails and platform sneakers.

"Found a picture when I was 5 at my first concert. #SpiceGirls and took a picture with a girl dressed up as Baby Spice who I just realized now was @blakelively," Bria captioned the pic, which we would like framed on our office wall.

Clearly chuffed her awesome costume had resurfaced, Blake shared the adorable photo on her own Instagram.

"Pretending to be someone else... since 1997 (Thanks @briaaamadrid for the photo of us at the Spice Girls concert. Sorry -not sorry- I tricked you into thinking I was @emmaleebunton)" she wrote below the photo.

But Blake's excitement levels hit their peak when Emma Bunton, the OG Baby Spice, commented on the photo.

"So cute, you're rocking those pigtails @blakelively" Emma commented.

Blake has zero chill in her reply, proving she's a die-hard Spice Girls fan like the rest of us.

"@emmaleebunton I'm officially [skull and crossbones emoji]," Lively responded. "Forever bowing down to you. 💕💕💕 I cannot believe you know who I am. This will never be normal."

We can confirm that having your own private exchange with a real-life Spice Girl is the opposite of normal.
