While the days of performing together may be in the past, the Spice Girls’ bond is as strong as ever, says Emma Bunton.
Now that they’re all mothers — including Bunton, who delivered her second son Tate Lee via c-section on May 6 — the singer admits the group has gone from sharing songs to basking in baby bliss.
“They came with little notes and that is always special to me, to get those from the girls.”
And the outpouring of love from her former bandmates didn’t stop there: Mel C. paid a personal visit to Bunton and her new baby boy shortly after the birth.
“We always make time for each other. Mel C. came to visit me in hospital and she got quite emotional — we do get very emotional for each other,” she says.
Following in their mother’s footsteps, the Dancing on Ice judge, 35, reveals the children have also formed fast friendships.
“It was lovely because Beau [3½, her elder son with fiancé Jade Jones] was there playing with her little girl Scarlet,” Bunton adds. ”Now our kids are friends too and as they grow, it will be wonderful to watch them all and the different stages in their lives.”
“As soon as we can possibly meet up, we will — that’s how it’s always been. But for the moment we’re making do with emails,” she explains. ”The fact our new babies are so close in age means we have lots to talk about. We’ve been swapping bits of advice and photos and sharing our excitement.”
