The 39-year-old star - who reaches the milestone next January - admits she has her hands full with her two sons, Beau, seven, and three-year-old Tate, so her and fiancé Jade Jones are not planning on having another child in the next nine months.

When asked if she wants another kid before she turns 40, she said: "I did say that but now I've changed my mind. It's obviously down to whether I'm lucky enough to have another one but, at this moment, I'm very happy with my two boys."

While some people worry about hitting the big 4-0, Emma has no qualms about moving into her fourth decade because her mother has inspired her after she became a black belt in karate and went back to college at a similar age.

The former Spice Girls singer added to Metro newspaper: "I'm looking forward to it because my 30s have been great and I was a little nervous about turning 30 but they turned out to be OK.

"And my mum went back to college, took up karate, became a black belt, all in her 40s. She's inspired me."
