Emma Bunton is a doting mum of two sons, and is careful to shield them away from the public eye. However, of late, the former Spice Girl has been giving fans a sneak peak into her idyllic family life, much to their delight. To mark her youngest son Tate's sixth birthday at the weekend, the 41-year-old posted a heartwarming tribute on Instagram, sharing a video clip of the little boy running in a field. She wrote: “6 years ago this bundle of joy was born! He makes us laugh everyday and he really is one in a million! #tate #happytears #lovemyboys.” The clip was very well received, with Emma’s former Spice Girl band member Geri Halliwell and TV chef Jamie Oliver liking it, while former Sporty Spice Mel C commented: “Happy birthday Tatey.”

Emma has had double to celebrate in the last few days, having been together with her fiance, Jade Jones, for 19 years. The singer created a sweet collage of pictures of the pair to mark the special occasion, titled: "My soul mate, my partner in crime, my best friend my lover. @jadejonesdmg every picture I find of us, you are holding my hand. 19 years today and I love you more than ever. #truelove."

Emma, also mum to nine-year-old Beau, and recently opened up to MailOnline about her desire to expand her family with her Jade. “I've always been very maternal and I love being around children. I think if I'm lucky enough that would be something wonderful.
“I'm always broody. I love every stage really. And obviously now I've got a nine-year-old and a five-year-old, they're going through different things. The whole thing about the smell of a baby, holding a newborn. Oh my goodness, there's nothing quite like it. And their skin is so delicate and soft and gorgeous. It's a very, very special time,” she said.
Emma has had a busy year so far, seeing her co-launch Kit & Kin selling eco-friendly baby products to celebrity clients such as Ronnie and Sally Wood, and even rubbing shoulders with royalty. The Heart Breakfast presenter recently attended the official opening of the Global Academy, where she was joined by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, who were there to promote their Heads Together Campaign.
While in the company of Prince William, Emma was left surprised when he asked her if the Spice Girls would ever reunite. "Are we hearing about a reunion coming our way soon," Prince William enquired, to which Emma, 41, jokingly replied: "Only if you come and see us!"
