Baby Spice wedding mystery over
Jade Jones and Emma Bunton
Still single: Jade Jones and Emma Bunton
Rumours that Spice Girl Emma Bunton had got married were quashed when it was revealed that it was her mother who tied the knot.

The singer had been seen in white and wearing a diamond ring at a London hotel on Wednesday.

But the reception was for her mother Pauline, not for Emma and her boyfriend Jade Jones, of boy band Damage.


Some people have obviously spotted her at this wedding and put two and two together and come up with 20

Spice Girls' spokeswoman

Her mother was seen holding a balloon bearing the words "Just Married", according to the Sun newspaper, sparking the rumours.

But spokeswoman for the Spice Girls quickly confirmed that Emma had not married.

Debut album

"Some people have obviously spotted her at this wedding and put two and two together and come up with 20," she said.

Emma, 25, who has a house in Hampstead, north London, began her relationship with Jade Jones - a singer with the band Damage - in 1998.

She releases her debut solo album and single in April.

Mel B introduced the couple in 1997 while the Spice Girls were performing in Manchester.

They split briefly in 1999, but marriage speculation intensified earlier this month when the couple sang a romantic duet on Damage's second album, Since You've Been Gone.

Emma has previously dated Rio Ferdinand and actor John Simm.
