Baby Spice arrives for Emma
- 13 August 2007
Spice Girl Emma Bunton has given birth to a baby boy, giving her a few months to bond with the child before setting off on a world tour with her reformed girl group. It is the singer’s first child with long-term boyfriend Jade Jones, weighing in at 7lb 15oz. Jones said they had chosen the name Beau, which is the French word for handsome. “It’s pretty good, just amazing. We’re both over the moon and absolutely thrilled to bits to have our little boy with us now,” he said. The Spice Girls will begin their 14-night world tour in Canada on December 2. They will then travel to the US, with the line up expected to include a concert in Victoria Beckham’s new LA home. The five-piece will also take in the UK, Germany, Spain, China, Australia, South Africa and Argentina. The Spice Girls - Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton and Melanie Chisholm - now have seven children between them.
