Emma Bunton, 44, throws Spice Girls reunion into doubt by revealing she wants a third child
14th July 2020

THE Spice Girls were due to hit the road for a final time next year — but it could be a different kind of Baby that ends up delaying those plans.

Emma Bunton has revealed she wants a third child and is being urged to do so by her partner Jade Jones and their two kids, Beau and Tate.

She had agreed with Mel B, Geri Horner and Melanie C to go on a final tour next year to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the band’s debut single Wannabe.

But given the uncertainty that surrounds live music, now could be the perfect time for her to try for a baby as the shows may not be able to go ahead until a later date.

Speaking about partner Jade, who Emma has been with since 1998, she said: “He would love to have more children. I battle with myself because I think obviously I would never regret having a child, but I might regret not having another child.

“But I’m 44 and with the Spice Girls coming back and with (her nappy brand) Kit & Kin doing so well, I’ve got two very healthy children and I think especially now if I had another child, I would be more nervous than ever. That scares me too much — I get frightened about everything.

“My kids want another one. On New Year’s Eve we all sat around the table and I was like, ‘Right, wishes for this year?’ Both of them said, ‘We would like another sibling’. No pressure. We’ll see.”

But having only just had her first baby two months before going into rehearsals for their 2007 reunion tour, Emma has insisted she will need a longer time to recover if the same thing happens again.

Speaking on the Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast, she explained: “That was quite a difficult time. I just felt, ‘Oh my God, this is happening so fast’.

“If anyone said to me, ‘I’m going to go on tour two or three months after the baby’, I’d say, ‘No, you’re not’.

“The time when I had just had Beau, that tour for me was special. We had babies around so I would say it was the most difficult of tours. It was a lovely time but definitely the hardest tour for me.”

If all goes to plan, there could be one more baby in the audience for those final Spice shows.

Zara: I won't use date app

ZARA Larsson is waiting for a man to sweep her off her feet – and reveals one of he best dates she has been on happened after being asked out in a hotel lobby.

The Swedish singer had an amicable split from model Brian Whittaker last year. But she does not want to go out looking for love or to join celebrity dating apps such as Raya.

Instead, she wants someone to come to her.

In an exclusive chat, Zara said: “I’m not saying no to it but it’s not something I’m actively out looking for.

“You will never find me on Raya, that’s for sure. I think it’s too hard to connect with people on those things. I’ve never tried it.

“I do like to go out on a date. One time I was chilling in a hotel lobby and someone walked up to me and was like, ‘You look great, do you want to go on a date?’

“And I was like, ‘You know what, absolutely I do’. He didn’t know I was a singer or anything, he was just like, ‘I love your style. I like your vibe’.

“I love that because I feel like that doesn’t happen any more.

“We went on a few dates and that was that. But I just love the fact he walked up to me.”

Romance is the inspiration for Zara’s excellent new single, Love Me Land, which starts with the line: “Never thought that I would love again.”

She added: “That’s kind of the feeling you’re in when you’ve broken up with someone and you’re like, ‘I’ll never be able to find love’, but you will.”


ALICE Cooper has swapped rock for choc – by launching a chocolate milk. Proceeds from the drink, made by an Arizona-based dairy firm, will go to his Solid Rock foundation, which helps teenagers through music and art.

Iggy back in the spotlight

IGGY Azalea drove her fans dotty by squeezing into this skin-tight outfit just two and a half months after giving birth.

She welcomed her baby boy with fellow rapper Playboy Carti in April and confirmed the news last month, although the star didn’t reveal his name.

It was business as usual for the Fancy singer as she was photographed on the way to a recording studio.

She may make an appearance on Lil Nas X’s debut album, after the Old Town Road singer tweeted her and asked if she would message him. Iggy replied “Wait a min, are we about to become two hit wonders?”

At least they can have a laugh at themselves.


RICKY Gervais has slammed Kim Kardashian and her family for their endorsements on social media. The comic said: “They get £20,000 for saying, ‘Ooh, I love this new chocolate bar’. It’s sort of embarrassing.”

Bad snooze for Fearne

FEARNE Cotton will not let anything get between her and a good night’s sleep, even if that means quitting her job.

The presenter revealed she gave up covering the Radio 2 Breakfast Show when Zoe Ball is off because she could not sleep beforehand.

Speaking as part of her Happy Place Festival, she said: “I would be awake all night panicking as I knew there was this definite early-morning wake-up.

"I would probably drift for like 20 minutes before my alarm would go off.”

That’s her early morning radio career put to bed then.

Beyonce can make life Kel

KELLY Rowlandhas admitted she has found it tough living in the shadow of her Destiny’s Child bandmate Beyonce.

Opening up about the impact, she said: “Can you imagine what it’s like being in a group with Beyonce?

“I would just torture myself in my head. Like, ‘I can’t wear this dress because they’re going to say it’s like B’.

“Or, ‘I can’t have a song like that because it sounds too much like B’.

“I would be lying if I said no, it’s never bothered me. That’s bull.

“There was a whole decade, if I am being completely honest, a decade where it was like the elephant in the room. It was the thing that would constantly be on my shoulder.”

Dua in dark

BLONDES may have more fun but Dua Lipa is thinking of a return to the dark side.

She posted this throwback photo on Instagram, showing her old dark-brown bob, and asked her 48million followers: “Should I bring her back?”

Fans voted overwhelmingly for her to lose the bleach job that she’s been rocking since last year.

I have to say, her natural brunette locks certainly suit her.
