All five Spices joined together for Thursday's unsurprising announcment at London's O2 Arena. The reunion, rumored—and downplayed—for weeks, was assumed to be a fait accompli once Simon Fuller, the Svengali who first unleashed the group on an unsuspecting public more than a decade ago, announced the quintet would be holding a press conference to "discuss future plans" several days ago.
"We are girl power," said Halliwell, 34. "It doesn't matter how old you are, 5 or 65."
In a statement the singer and his fiancee Tameka Foster issued to The Associated Press on Wednesday (June 27), the couple said: "We are extremely excited at this point in our lives planning our wedding and the joy that comes with expecting our first child together. We hope people will be happy for us and respect our privacy during this happy period in our lives." The baby, which is due in the fall, will be the fourth child for recently divorced stylist Foster.

Baby Autumn Brown has a name to live up - in fact she has over 25 of them.
The little girl's mother Maria, in keeping with her boxing-mad family's bizarre tradition, decided to give her 25 middle names - all culled from the greatest exponents inside the ring.
Her full name, which left register office staff in Perton, Wolverhampton reeling is: Autumn Sullivan Corbett Fitzsimmons Jeffries Hart Burns Johnson Willard Dempsey Tunney Schmeling Sharkey Carnera Baer Braddock Louis Charles Walcott Marciano Patterson Johansson Liston Clay Frazier Foreman Brown.
Maria told the city's Express and Star: "The whole thing came about because both my mum and dad are obsessed with boxing and have a bit of a daft sense of humour.
"When I was young I couldn't ever remember my name. It took me to the age of 10 to memorise it all."
The 33-year-old mother added: "I'm hoping Autumn has a good sense of humour with her name. It's never done me any harm though."

The “American Idol” vet was seated by the window at 1:30 p.m. for a scheduled 1:55 p.m. take off on Friday. A man and his son had the seats next to Frenchie, but the boy complained that he didn’t want to sit next to the “big black person,” Davis’ rep says.
The man asked Frenchie to put her armrest down between her and the boy, but Frenchie had already fallen asleep as the plane began to taxi down the runway.
According to her rep, the man “stands up and shakes Frenchie violently saying wake up and put the armrest down right now. She tells him to take his hands off her.”
The man allegedly asked flight attendants to call security because this “big black woman is harassing him,” the rep recounts. She says two flight attendants respond, but don't bother to ask Frenchie to tell her side of the story. They just demand that she move.
