Former Spice Girl announces she's expecting

Emma Bunton has confirmed today that she’s pregnant.

The 31-year-old is expecting her first child in the summer with boyfriend Jade Jones.

The ex-Spice Girl joked: ‘I guess I will be handing over the Baby tag now to a deserving little new owner.’

Jade, 27, a member of 90s boy band Damage, has been with Emma for eight years, and the couple finally moved in together last year.

‘We are so happy, it’s unbelievable news,’ he says. ‘What a great start to the New Year.

‘We’re really looking forward to having a family together and to the rest of our lives.’

Emma is the fourth Spice Girl to become a mum, after bandmates Victorial Beckham, Mel B and Geri Halliwell.
