Holly Willoughby and Victoria Beckham lead stars wishing Baby Spice Emma Bunton happy 45th birthday with throwback pics

HOLLY Willoughby and Victoria Beckham wished Baby Spice Emma Bunton a happy 45th birthday with cute throwback pics.

The celebs took to social media to pay tribute to the Spice Girl with nostalgic photos of their special moments together.

Her former bandmate Victoria, 46, dug out a corker from her vast Spice Girls archive, showing the pair holding hands.

The 90s paparazzi snap shows a busty Posh Spice leading Emma along the MTV Awards red carpet and they both flash huge smiles for fans.

The pair were unmistakable in their usual band garb of minidresses and platform heels.

Victoria captioned her photo on Instagram: "Happy Birthday @emmaleebunton! ✌🏼💕 We love and miss you so much! Kisses from us all xxx"

And Emma wrote back: "Love you so much! Can’t wait to see you all soon. X"

Victoria's followers raved over the pic, with one writing: "I love that picture, you two are absolutely gorgeous ! Happy birthday!🎂🎈🎉"

Holly Willoughby also wished her best friend Emma a happy 45th birthday on Instagram with a sweet throwback pic.

She gives her longtime pal a warm squeeze in the photo, and Holly, 39, wrote alongside it: "Happy birthday to this beautiful lady... I love you baby spice... I miss your cuddles... have a gorgeous day @emmaleebunton 🎀"

Mel C also chose a sweet Spice Girls photo to pay tribute to her friend.

She said: "Happy Birthday my darling Emma. Missing our cheeky cocktail nights and cuddles on & off stage. Let’s get planning more fun ASAP!!!! Love you"

And Geri Horner aka Ginger Spice said: "Happy birthday @emmaleebunton! You’ll always be our baby! Wishing you an amazing year ahead 🥳🎂💓x"

Last year Emma revealed she wants a third child.

She currently has two kids, Beau and Tate, with her partner Jade Jones.

Speaking about partner Jade, who Emma has been with since 1998, she said last year: “He would love to have more children. I battle with myself because I think obviously I would never regret having a child, but I might regret not having another child.

“But I’m 44 and with the Spice Girls coming back and with (her nappy brand) Kit & Kin doing so well, I’ve got two very healthy children and I think especially now if I had another child, I would be more nervous than ever. That scares me too much — I get frightened about everything.

“My kids want another one. On New Year’s Eve we all sat around the table and I was like, ‘Right, wishes for this year?’ Both of them said, ‘We would like another sibling’. No pressure. We’ll see.”
