Emma Bunton's son Tate may only be seven, but he is already showing huge talent when it comes to singing. Following in his Spice Girl mum's footsteps, the adorable little boy loves to perform, and as part of a birthday treat he went to the studios to record a song of his choice. On Monday's Heart Breakfast Show, his proud mum showed off the finished results live on air while chatting to Rita Ora – whose hit single Anywhere was he choice of song. "My son Tate is obviously a huge fan of yours," Emma told the singer, telling her: "You better watch out Rita Ora," before playing Tate's recording – which Rita was blown away by.

A third added: "OMG! Emma, another talented person in your house! Can't wait for another song made by this cute Spice Boy!"

There is little wonder that Tate is showing great singing talents. As well as having a Spice Girl as his mum, his dad Jade Jones also found fame as an R&B singer. The couple are also proud parents to son Beau, ten, and have been engaged since 2011, yet have no plans to get married anytime soon. Talking to Fabulous magazine, Emma revealed: "There aren’t any plans for a wedding, but we do talk about it. I think because both of us are Aquarius we try and live for the moment, so don’t plan things too far ahead. ‘I’m so lucky to have found him. He has been a real support and is so positive, as sometimes I get nervous or worry about things. He’s a good man to have around."
