“Baby” Spice Emma Bunton has joined the Mummy Spice club after giving birth to a baby boy this morning.

Emma and partner Jade Jones welcomed baby Beau into the world around 11.12am this morning at the Portland Hospital in London. He weighed in at 7lbs, 15oz.

Former Damage star Jade told reporters outside the hospital: “He is absolutely brilliant, and both baby and Emma are doing fine.

“Emma is upstairs doing really well, just recovering and bonding with the baby. In fact Emma is tucking into some flapjacks and Coca-Cola as we speak.”

“I’m just pleased to have our little baby boy with us. I’m over the moon. He looks a bit like both of us actually, so he’s a very lucky boy.”

“We are both absolutely delighted and can’t wait to take Beau home.”

Beau is a first child for both Emma and Jade and is the seventh Spice child after Melanie Brown’s two daughters (Phoenix and Angel), Victoria Beckham’s three boys (Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz) and Geri Halliwell’s daughter Bluebell.
