Baby Spice Emma Bunton, 45, reveals she wants another child but fears it could be too late as she enters the transition stage before the menopause
Baby Spice Emma Bunton today reveals she has entered the transition stage before the menopause – and faces a race against time to have another child.
In an interview with The Mail on Sunday’s You magazine, the 45-year-old says she delayed trying to get pregnant due to the pandemic but ‘cried her eyes out’ when she discovered it might now be too late to become a mother for a third time.
Describing the symptoms of perimenopause – the body’s natural transition towards the menopause –she says: ‘I started to feel unbalanced and anxious.
‘At first I put it down to the pandemic. But then the anxiety became more regular, until it was daily.
‘I was also lethargic. Something wasn’t right. I looked up the symptoms and saw I had quite a few.
‘So I spoke to someone on Zoom who came to the same conclusion. I was perimenopausal.’

Ms Bunton, the mother of Beau, 13, and Tate, ten, with long-term partner Jade Jones, adds: ‘I thought, ‘Is this the end?’
‘It’s been a very weird time. I’m a very mumsy person – when I see my friends’ babies, I always become broody. But now I thought, ‘OK, this is it.’ ‘
She is now on a low dose of hormone replacement therapy and is undecided about having a third baby.
Describing a Spice Girls tour of the US and Canada in 2007 just weeks after Beau was born, she recalls: ‘Physically, my body wasn’t ready to be doing two-hour shows every night.

‘Your hips don’t move the way they should, I fell over a couple of times backstage. I cried at everything, my skin broke out in rashes.
‘I said to our physio ‘What’s going on?’ and he laughed, ‘What do you mean? You just had a baby!’ ‘
Nowadays she juggles work commitments around the school run, but credits Jade, the former lead singer of R&B band Damage, for her continued success.
‘He makes everything calm. He’s sacrificed a lot,’ she says.
