Newlyweds Emma Bunton and Jade Jones seen publicly for the first time since announcing surprise wedding as they enjoy day out in London with their sons
She surprised fans earlier this month by revealing she had quietly tied the knot with her long-term partner at Soho Farmhouse in the Cotswolds after 23 years together.
The couple appeared in good spirits as they were joined by sons Beau, 13, and 10-year-old Tate while enjoying a family day out in the capital’s Covent Garden.

The blonde beauty announced their engagement in 2011 but never revealed their wedding plans.
On the long-awaited special day, Emma looked incredible in her short white gown which featured semi-sheer sleeves and a train attached as a cape.
Meanwhile, R&B singer-turned-chef Jade rocked a Gucci blazer and cream chinos as well as a brown trilby hat.
Long term: Emma and Jade have been together for more than 20 years and share children Beau, 13, and Tate, 10
Emma revealed the nuptials to fans by sharing snaps to her social media accounts and excitedly penned: ‘Mr and Mrs Jones!’
And a source told MailOnline that even Emma’s bandmates from the Spice Girls were left in the dark about the ceremony.
They said: ‘No friends or family were invited, and it was a secret from everyone.
‘It was just their mums, their two children and two close friends as legal witnesses, with Beau as best man.’
