LONDON (Reuters) - Pop singer Emma Bunton gave birth to her own Baby Spice on Friday — a boy called Beau.

Bunton, 31, known as Baby Spice during her days with the Spice Girls, and partner Jade Jones’s first baby was born at 11:12 a.m. at London’s private Portland Hospital.

“We just had a lovely baby boy,” a beaming Jones told reporters outside the hospital. “Emma is doing very well ... she’s just bonding with baby. We’re over the moon.”

Jones said the first request the singer had following the birth was for Coca-Cola and flapjacks.

Bunton and Jones, a former member of Nineties boy band Damage, have been together for eight years.

Bunton is the latest member of Spice Girls, who announced in June that they are reforming for a comeback tour, to give birth.

Mel B had her second daughter, Angel Iris, four months ago, after an affair with Hollywood star Eddie Murphy. She has an eight-year-old daughter, Phoenix Chi, from her former husband, dancer Jimmy Gulzar.

Ginger Spice Geri Halliwell gave birth to her first child Bluebell Madonna last year.

Victoria Beckham is mother to Brooklyn, 8, Romeo, 4, and Cruz, 2.
