Emma Bunton, "Baby Spice," is engaged to Jade Jones

Emma Bunton, also known as "Baby Spice" of '90s pop group the Spice Girls, is at long last engaged to boyfriend Jade Jones.

"Yahooooo I'm Engaged!," Bunton said Sunday on Twitter. "Love you Jade! I'm a very happy lady!!"

Bunton, 35, and Jones, 31, have been together for 11 years; they have a 3-year-old son together and another baby on the way as of November. The girl group split in 2000, getting back together for a brief reunion tour late in the decade.

Onetime bandmate Posh Spice, now Victoria Beckham, is also pregnant, with a fourth child due this summer. Jones, a former boy-band singer, is now a chef.
