Emma Bunton is no longer Baby Spice – but the news of her actually having a little one is causing former singing mates to offer their congratulations.

The most notable, of course, is Victoria Beckham. A mother of three herself, the ex-Posh Spice told People magazine:

“I am so excited for Emma. It really is fantastic news, and she really will make a perfect mummy!”

That’s British talk for “mommy,” folks. We know Jessica Simpson, at least, must’ve been confused.

Buton’s close pal Melanie “Sporty” Chisholm was similarly enthusiastic.

Chisholm “is absolutely delighted,” her manager said. “She spent much of the weekend trying to reach Emma, as they kept missing each other. She is overjoyed, thrilled to bits for her. As everyone is.”

Wait, the woman formerly known as “Sporty Spice” still has a manager?!? Isn’t that sort of like Katie Rees still having a copy of the bible?

Bunton and boyfriend Jade Jones made their happy announcement Friday. We’re happy for them – and assume Posh’s gal pal, Katie Holmes, is, too.
