Emma "Baby Spice" Bunton, 31, gave birth to a son named Beau Jones today. The father is Emma's boyfriend Jade Jones, 27. Jade was a member of the now defunct boyband Damage. The couple have been together for 8 years and have shared a five-bedroom home in London since 2005.
Emma had many obstacles to overcome to have her first child. In 2000, she had pre-cancerous cells removed from her cervix. Last year, she was diagnosed with endometriosis, a condition in which the lining of the uterus begins growing in other areas of the body and which makes it difficult to conceive.
There are now a total of seven children among the Spice Girls - Victoria has three boys, Mel has 2 girls, and Geri has a daughter.
