Emma Bunton insists getting married is not a "major priority".
The 36-year-old singer - who became engaged to former Damage singer Jade Jones a year ago after 10 years together - admits the couple and their children Beau, four and eight-month-old Tate are so close anyway, marriage is not on the cards at the moment.
She said: "We're already a really close-knit family, so it's not a major priority. I'm sure it's something that will happen, but definitely not in the near future."
She told Britain's OK! magazine: "Michael said, 'You used to be my celebrity crush.' I was like, 'Oh my gosh this is embarrassing!' "
However, the 'Stop' hitmaker joked that some of the celebrities she admires failed to echo the sentiment expressed by Michael.
She added: "Johnny Depp didn't say that to me, but I'm sure he was definitely thinking it though!"
