Emma Bunton is pregnant again.

The former Spice Girl has announced she is expecting her second child with her long-term partner Jade Jones and the couple and their three-year-old son Beau are thrilled.

She wrote on her twitter page: "So our family grows, we are SO excited to announce we're having our 2nd baby and beau's wish for a brother or sister has come true! Xxxxxxx (sic)"

A few months ago Emma revealed she wanted to get pregnant again this year.

The 34-year-old star - who was known as 'Baby Spice' when she was a member of the girl group - admitted she felt it was the right time for Beau to get a sibling.

Discussing whether or not she planned to extend her brood, Emma said: "Yes, fingers crossed. I'd love to have more children. We're getting to the right time as Beau is starting nursery.

"I just think my priorities have changed. Family is everything to me. Everything is about Beau now. He's two years old, so he's getting a bit cheeky and I love that."
