Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton is adamant she doesn't need to marry her boyfriend Jade Jones to "justify" their relationship.

Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton is adamant she doesn't need to marry her boyfriend Jade Jones to "justify" their relationship.

The couple has been dating since 1999 and have a 12-month old son, Beau, together.

But despite living with constant media speculation about an imminent wedding, Bunton insists that she doesn't plan to walk down the aisle with her long-term partner any time soon.

She told British magazine Closer: "We've been rumoured to be engaged about 20 times, but we don't need a wedding to justify our relationship. But if we ever do get married, I couldn't run off and do it in secret - my family would be so upset."

And Bunton revealed that she might even wait and have another child before eventually tying the knot with Jones.

She added: "Maybe we'll have another child before getting married. I'd love to have more children - but I'm sure two's harder."
