​This Girl Realised 10-Year-Old Blake Lively Featured In Her Old Photo

When most of us look through old photos of ourselves, normally it's just a bit of a cringe-fest - a disturbing combo of dodgy haircuts and even worse fashion choices. Maybe even an ex's face scribbled out, urging you to wonder 'What the hell was I thinking?'.

But one woman spotted something a little more exciting nestled among the snaps from her childhood, when she noticed that someone she'd been photographed with looked a little familiar.

Bria Madrid tweeted to say that she'd found a photo from her first concert. Aged just five, she'd gone to see the Spice Girls and bumped into someone who'd dressed up as Baby Spice. That someone, she now realises, was a young Blake Lively.

The image soon went viral, and it obviously didn't take long for Blake herself to pick up on the amazing story.

As well as retweeting the photo to her one million followers, Blake also posted it onto Instagram, captioning it: "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)."

Bria has since suggested that the two try and recreate the picture at a Spice Girl reunion concert, and, given that that tweet has racked up over 8,000 likes, it seems that's exactly what the world wants.

One person commented: "Okay Blake. This is your moment. You have to fulfill this. Destiny is begging for it."

Another said: "I really hope this happens. It's what 2018 deserves."

Another begged: "Make this happen!!! The power of social media is crazy!! Let's make some good out of this platform. Make this girls dream come true."

No word from Blake yet, but here's hoping.

So maybe next time you're rifling through your childhood photos, you should look out for the finer details in the background. You never know what gems you might uncover... although realistically you'll probably just spot your little brother picking his nose behind you. Ah, siblings.
