Geri Halliwell is dating a Russian millionaire.

The former Spice Girls singer - who has five-year-old daughter Bluebell Madonna from a previous relationship - met Anton Kaszubowski last month and she is said to be smitten with the ''gentleman''.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''They hit it off instantly and are seeing a lot of each other.

''Anton's just her type. He has friends in high places and loves shooting in the country.

''Geri's typically rushing into it with guns blazing saying, 'He's the gentleman that I've been waiting for.' ''

Since Geri, 40, met 39-year-old Anton - whose friends include the singer's former boyfriend Henry Beckwith - they have enjoyed a romantic trip to Rome, Italy, dinners in London and a day out shooting.

Last year, the 'Look at Me' singer enjoyed a brief relationship with comic Russell Brand after meeting during rehearsals for the London Olympics Closing Ceremony.

A source said at the time: ''Things are getting very serious between them - they're a proper couple now. They had met several times in the past but really got to know each other during the Olympics.

''People thought Russell was joking at the time when he said he had a crush on Geri all over again, but it was true.

''They just clicked - they have so much in common. He is spending so much time in London just to be with her.''
