Victoria Beckham spiced up her 50th birthday last month with the Spice Girls.

Posh Spice’s son, Cruz Beckham, took to Instagram on Wednesday (May 8) to share a previously unseen clip from his mother’s star-studded birthday bash in London on April 20, in which the 19-year-old accompanied the Spice Girls on guitar as they delivered an impromptu performance of their 1996 hit “Mama.”

“You’re welcome…” he simply wrote in the caption. See his post here.

As previously reported, all five members of the legendary 1990s girl group — Beckham, Geri Halliwell-Turner, Emma Bunton, Melanie “Mel C” Chisholm, Melanie “Mel B” Brown — rejoined for a brief dance routine to their 1997 song “Stop” during the celebration, held at the private club Oswald’s in London.

At the time, Beckham shared the video on Instagram. “Best night ever! Happy Birthday to me! I love you all so much!” she captioned the post, adding the hashtag #SpiceUpYourLife.

The group went on hiatus in 2000, returning in 2007 for a global tour and again in 2018-2019, though without Beckham, who has not participated in the Girls’ activities for more than a decade. In early January, Mel B teased that the Girls were planning yet another reunion this year to mark three decades of empowerment. “I’ve been saying it forever. But now we’re actually going to be releasing some really good news in about a few weeks that involves all five of us,” she said at the time on Today. “It’s going to be the gift that keeps on giving, without saying too much about it. I’m going to get myself into so much trouble.”
