By Emily Sheridan

Baby joy: Emma Bunton and fiancé Jade Jones have welcomed their second son, a 7lbs baby boy named Tate

Emma Bunton is celebrating following the birth of her second son this morning.

The former Spice Girl, 35, gave birth to a 'beautiful' baby boy name Tate, she announced on her Twitter page.

She Tweeted today: 'Our beautiful son Tate has arrived safe and sound! We are all so happy and excited. Thanks and love to you all. Xx.'

A statement read: 'Emma Bunton and Jade Jones are delighted to announce the birth of their second child, a baby boy called Tate.

'He was born on 6 May 2011 and weighed in at 7lbs.

'Both mother and baby are doing well and the family are over the moon and would like to thank everyone for their kind wishes and support.'

Among the first to congratulate the new mother was TV presenter friend Myleene Klass, who Tweeted: 'Huge congrats to you and your family. Little Tate is finally here!'

Big announcement: Bunton announced the birth of her 'beautiful' son Tate on her Twitter page

After originally announcing her pregnancy in November, the Dancing On Ice judge revealed in February she was expecting another boy with long-term partner Jade Jones.

And in January, the ex-Damage singer and long-term love Jones, 32, revealed they
were engaged after 11 years together.

After Dancing On Ice came to an end in March, Bunton has been taking it easy the past few weeks.

Harriet Scott, who recently announced she is pregnant with her second child, is covering Bunton's Saturday afternoon radio show on Heart FM while the singer is on maternity leave.

The last few weeks the star admitted on Twitter she had been struggling to sleep - presumably because baby Tate was very active.

Two of Bunton's former Spice Girls bandmates are currently pregnant - Victoria Beckham is due to give birth to a baby girl in July, while Melanie Brown is expecting around the same time.

Bunton has previously spoken of her fears she would never conceive after being diagnosed with endometriosis when she was 25.

She said while pregnant with Beau: 'I remember the doctor saying at the time, "Fifty per cent of women with endometriosis go on to have children." I thought, "Only 50 per cent..." It scared the life out of me. I was frightened.

'I've been so worried for such a long time that I might not be able to be a mum.'
