    Default 'Baby Spice' Emma Bunton has a son

    Emma Bunton, a.k.a. "Baby Spice," has become a mother for the first time – of a boy named Beau, PEOPLE has confirmed.

    Beau, which in French means "beautiful," was born at Friday at 11:12 a.m. and weighed a healthy 7 lbs., 15oz. – the same birth weight as his father, Bunton boyfriend Jade Jones, according to Bunton's London rep, Alan Edwards.

    Speaking outside London's Portland Hospital, Jones said: "He is absolutely brilliant, and both baby and Emma are doing fine. In fact Emma is tucking into some flapjacks and Coca-Cola as we speak."

    The new father added, "We are both absolutely delighted and can't wait to take Beau home."

    Jones, 27, is a former member of the British boy band Damage. He and Spice Girl Bunton, 31, have been together for eight years and moved into a five-bedroom home in her native north London in 2005.

    Motherhood for the youngest of the reunion-bound five-piece has been difficult to achieve.

    In 2000, Bunton had to have pre-cancerous cells removed from her cervix. Last year, she revealed she'd been diagnosed with endometriosis, a painful condition in which the lining of the uterus begins growing in other areas of the body, making it difficult to conceive.

    Less than two months ago, Bunton told PEOPLE: "I'm getting a little feisty now that I am pregnant."

    Bunton has a tattoo of "Baby" on her body but refuses to reveal its location – apart from denying she sits on it.

    "I guess I will be handing over the 'Baby' tag now to a deserving little new owner," Bunton said in a statement in January, when she first announced her pregnancy.

    In all, there are now seven Spice Kids: "Posh" Victoria Beckham has three sons; "Scary" Melanie Brown has two daughters; and "Ginger" Geri Halliwell has a daughter. That leaves only "Sporty" Melanie Chisholm waiting to enjoy Spice mommy hood.

    ^^ I like the name Beau too, I'm glad she didn't go with some ridiculous celeb name like Apple or Princess Tamiaisofasdf
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    If they pronounce it like "Bo" then no, I don't like it. Bit too Dukes of Hazzard to me. And are flapjacks the same as pancakes? I didn't think they had pancakes in the UK or the peeps who have visited us had never had them before.

    Either way, happy for her but don't like the name.

    I think the name is pronounced just as you would say beautiful but without the tiful part. I have only heard of one person with the name Beau and that was a hot hot Aussie actor called Beau Brady. So the name is fine with me even though at first i thought it sounded rather girly.


    DoveFeatheredRaven, flapjacks are not the same as pancakes. Flapjacks are made from porridge oats, honey and brown sugar and usually have chocolate on the top - my favorite!!

    Here is a picture of chocolate flapjacks





    And to answer the other question, yes we do make pancakes in the U.K we even have national Pancake Day (also known as Shrove Tuesday) which is an enitre day devoted to eating pancakes yum yum. The shelves at the supermarket are alway empty of eggs and flour on Pancake Day, such a bloody pain the ass. But i think the english recipe is slightly different to that of other nations.
