Emma Bunton engaged, excited about marriage

London: Former Spice Girl singer Emma Bunton, who is pregnant with her second child, has announced that she is engaged to her partner of 11 years, Jade Jones and that they will tie the knot soon.

"Yes, I`m engaged. We`ve got a second baby on the way and we`re getting married so it`s all very exciting," a website quoted her as saying.

Bunton, who has a three-year-old son, Beau, with Jones had previously said she didn`t want to marry him as she was happy with their relationship.

She had said: "I`m not keen for him to propose. The thing with me and Jade is it`s been so brilliant and we are happy as we are. Of course, we have talked about marriage, but we like it the way it is. We have a child together, which is the most wonderful thing anyway. It`s such a special thing for us to have a son. We`re soulmates."
