Bunton, who has appeared as a judge on the TV show Dancing On Ice since 2010, also announced the birth to fans who follow her on the social networking site Twitter.

In January, she and Jones announced their engagement after 11 years together as a couple.

The star, who gave birth to her first son, Beau, in August 2007, rose to fame as Baby Spice in the chart-topping girl group. The Spice Girls had nine number one singles before splitting up in 2000.

Bunton’s former bandmate, Leeds-born Mel B, is expecting her third child later this year.

A musical based on the group’s songs, called Viva Forever, is being made by the people behind the smash-hit Abba musical Mamma Mia!
