It's been quite a month for Emma Bunton! The Spice Girl finally tied the knot with her long-term partner Jade Jones on 13 July, ten years after they announced their engagement - and this week there was further cause for celebration.

On Tuesday, Emma took to Instagram with a very rare photo of her eldest son, Beau. "This beautiful soul, my first born is 14 years old today," she proudly wrote. "To know him is to love him! You are truly special @beaubuntonjones Thank you for being the centre of our world." The star added four red love heart emojis.

Emma has said she would 'love' to have more children with Jade

When asked if she would like another baby, Emma replied: "Yes. But it's whether it's the right time. Whether it's right, whether I'm lucky enough. I'm 44 now… I just love now that my children are a little bit older and we're spending loads of time together.

"They're my priority at the moment but if you asked Jade he'd want one tomorrow. But for me, I am enjoying my two at the moment."
