Foxy Bingo recently released a shortlist of famous celebrity females for its Celeb Mum of the Year Award 2013 and now it’s been revealed that the winner is…..Emma Bunton!
The ‘baby’ Spice Girl, who has two cute little boys, has been crowned as the best celebrity mum for the year.
Is it any wonder why the 37-year-old took home the accolade? The infamous girl band reunited after 10 years to perform at the opening ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics; and the singer has landed a new hosting role on the breakfast radio show Heart 106.2.
Emma said that the award would definitely be taking a pride place on her mantelpiece. She said: “I’m so honoured that thousands of you picked me, thank you to everyone who voted! This award is extra special because this is the most important thing – being a Mummy!”
Her sons, Tate Lee Jones (2) and Beau Lee Jones (5), have both been named after her long-term partner Jade Jones, who she has been dating since 1997.
The awards, which have been running for 12 years, saw a record number of votes cast. More than 10,000 people took part and Emma attained more than one third of the total votes cast.
The top 10 winners included:
- Emma Bunton
- Michelle Heaton
- Claire Richards
- Myleene Klass
- Holly Willoughby
- Una Healy
- Katie Price
- Amanda Holden
- Victoria Beckham
- Coleen Rooney
She beat off stiff competition from the likes of former Liberty X star Michelle Heaton, who has recently undergone a double mastectomy, as well as former Steps lead singer Claire Richards, who also reunited with her band in 2012.
The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge had been nominated for the prize and was a top favourite to win, despite the fact she hasn’t even given birth yet.
And Kate Middleton was not the only expectant person to be shortlisted for Celebrity Mum of the Year 2013. Presenter Fearne Cotton and Paralympic gold medallist Sarah Storey were also in the list as contenders for the crown.
Other famous faces that were pipped to the post included new mum Adele, and Loose Women star Andrea Mclean.
