Emma Bunton’s son confirms he's dating Hollywood actor’s daughter

Emma Bunton’s son confirms he's dating Hollywood actor’s daughter

The singer's son recently celebrated his 16th birthday

The son of Spice Girls star Emma Bunton has confirmed he's in a relationship with the daughter of a well-known Hollywood actor.

Ah, to be famous. Or at least related to someone who's famous.

It must be nice!

Emma Bunton is a mum-of-two.

Bunton's 16-year-old son, Beau, has obviously been running in some pretty cool circles, because he confirmed his romance with the actor's daughter in a snap shared on social media in honour of his recent birthday.

The teen took to Instagram to share a series of photos along with the caption '16'.

The first snap showed Beau posing in front of some large silver balloons; the second showed him grinning with his mum, and the final pic showed him with his arms around a blonde girl, who covered her face with her phone as they took the picture in the mirror.

Beau confirmed his romance with the snap.

Beau then tagged 15-year-old Grace Freeman in the picture, indicating his romance with the daughter of well-known actor Martin Freeman.

Freeman has starred in a whole range of films and TV series over the years, including Love Actually, Sherlock, Nativity! and The Hobbit.

Throughout his career, the actor has earned himself an Emmy Award, a BAFTA and a Screen Actors Guild Award, as well as a Golden Globe nomination.

Grace further confirmed the romance as she commented 'happy birthday' on Beau's post, along with a heart emoji.

The birthday boy also received a whole host of other birthday wishes for his sweet 16, with another comment reading: "Hope your enjoying all your celebrations! Big birthday hugs!!!"

Bunton shared her own pictures from the celebration with a post showing Beau's birthday balloons, alongside a caption which read: "My gorgeous boy is 16! We are bursting with pride @beaubuntonjones at the man you have become.

"Loving, king and the light in our family. We love you so much."

Beau's 16th birthday came just days before he received his GCSE results this week, prompting his mum to share a rare picture of him to her own Instagram feed.

Alongside the snap, the singer wrote: "Diving into the future! You smashed it @beaubuntonjones. We are so proud of you. Love you to bits."

Holly Willoughby was among the followers to congratulate Beau on his results as she commented: "Awww well done."

Another added: "Yes Beau well done to you and enjoy it. This is just the beginning."

As well as Beau, Bunton is also mum to her younger son, Tate.
