Emma Bunton is an Embarrassing Mum


EBWhen you’re a working mum it can often mean that you can’t do the daily school runs yourself because of the timings of your job. For Spice Girl Emma Bunton, her’s is no different. She’s unable to do mornings because she’s one half of Heart FM‘s breakfast show with co-host Jamie Theakston. However, she is grateful that the early 6am start means she is able to at least be there to pick up sons Beau Lee, 7, from school and Tate Lee, 4, from nursery. Speaking to Essentials magazine, she said:

“I’m lucky that I work in the mornings, so generally I’m home in time to pick up Tate from nursery, then go to get Beau from school.”

But the 39-year old admits her over-enthusiastic demeanour at the school gates doesn’t go down too well with Beau — who finds his mum embarrassing.

“I literally grab them and squeeze them and kiss them. Beau’s only seven and he’s already like, ‘Eurgh Mum, get off!’”

“But I can’t help myself. I know it’s probably going to have to stop soon, so I’m making the most of it while I can.

Emma Bunton’s Son Beau Models For Argos


Emma Bunton has teamed up with Argos to design a 99 piece collection of baby and children’s wear – some of which is to be modelled by the singer’s 4-year-old son Beau Lee. Speaking of her collaboration with the store,  35-year-old Emma – who is also mum to son Tate Lee, 6 months with boyfriend Jade Jones, said:

 ‘As a Mum myself I’m forever searching for fun and fashionable clothes for my boys, that are comfortable and practical too – clothes they really want to wear. Working with Argos has given me the opportunity to create just that.

 “I’ve worked hard on every piece of the range; the designs, colours, fabrics, prints and cuts and I’m so proud of the outcome.

 “As a child, I modelled for Argos and featured in the catalogue several times so it’s great to make a return appearance, this time with my own range. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.”

The collection is set to hit stores and the Argos catalogue in January 2012.
