If Emma Bunton has her way, son Beau Lee won’t be an only child for long!

The former Spice Girl tells Stylist that she and Jade Jones have babies on the brain.

“Yes, fingers crossed, I’d love to have more children. We’re getting to the right time, as Beau is starting nursery.”

As 2½-year-old Beau has gotten older, Bunton says her enthusiasm for motherhood remains unchanged.

“He’s getting a bit cheeky, and I love that,” she notes.

One thing that has changed, however, are the pop singer’s priorities.

“Everything is about Beau now,” Bunton, 34, points out. “I’m definitely at my happiest when I’m at home with my little boy and my family.”

At no time is that happiness more apparent than during extended family dinners when “there are loads of us squashed around the table,” Bunton reveals. The fact that her partner of 12 years is a trainee chef helps as well!

“Jade makes us a stew and we’re all laughing. That always feels very warm and settled.”
