Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton has confessed she was very forward in her seduction of partner Jade Jones when they first met.

The 38-year-old singer turned radio presenter met fiance Jade, once a member of boy band Damage, backstage after a Spice Girls concert in 1998 and they now have two sons Beau, seven, and Tate, three, and are engaged to be married.

Emma revealed: "It truly was love at first sight. I believe in fate and that it was meant to be. I saw him, he looked at me, and as we were going to an after-show party, I just pointed at him and said, 'You are coming with me'. It was very forward and very girl power looking back on it, but we just had a connection straight away. We completely clicked."

The couple got engaged in 2011, an event she revealed while she was a judge on ITV's Dancing On Ice.

But Emma said: "We're very laid-back about naming a day and it's not on the cards currently. Now and again, we talk about getting married, but we're so busy, we never get around to organising it. I'm sure one day we'll do it, and it will probably be just us and the boys while we're away somewhere."

Baby Spice revealed how much she loves being a mother, and hasn't ruled out having another baby.

She said: "I still feel so lucky to have my sons. When I was 25, I was told that as I suffer from endometriosis, I only had a 50/50 chance of having children, which scared me to death. When I fell pregnant the first time, I was ecstatic. It makes family occasions even more special, as I look at my two healthy, happy little boys and remember those years I spent worrying I might never have that dream.

"People say the boys have unusual names and they came about because we wanted simple names that couldn't be shortened. Jade loves fashion and named Beau after Beau Brumell, who was a famous dandy in Regency times, while I chose Tate after one of my favourite Jodie Foster films, Little Man Tate.

"Would I like another baby? Well, my youngest is only three, so he still feels like my little baby at the moment, but maybe in the future, if I was lucky enough to have another, it would be nice. I'm not thinking about it just yet."
