"Baby Spice" Welcomes First Child, Baby Boy Beau

LONDON (AP) - It's a baby boy for "Baby Spice" Emma Bunton.

The 31-year-old Spice Girls singer gave birth to a son, Beau, at London's Portland Hospital on Friday, a spokesman said.

He is the first child for Bunton and boyfriend Jade Jones.

The Spice Girls - Bunton, Victoria Beckham, Melanie Chisholm, Geri Halliwell and Melanie Brown - had a string of global hits before splitting in 2001. In June they announced they were reuniting for a tour that will begin later this year.
