Just call him little man Tate. Seeing as how that's his name and all.

Just in time for Mother's Day, erstwhile Baby Spice Emma Bunton and longtime partner and fiancé Jade Jones welcomed their second child (and son) Tate Jones in London earlier today. How's that for timing?

And like any new mother—er, make that any new celeb mother—wasted no time in hopping on Twitter. After the requisite cuddling, oohing and aahing, that is.

"Our beautiful son Tate has arrived safe and sound!" she wrote. "We are all so happy and excited. Thank and love to you all. Xx."

The statement echoes one put out by the couple's rep, stating that the mother and baby are "doing well," and that the couple was "delighted" to announce the birth. They were also, as all good British families tend to be, "over the moon" at the addition and "would like to thank everyone for their kind wishes and support."

Little Tate, who arrived at a healthy 7 pounds, joins 3-year-old big brother Beau in the expanding brood. Talk about boy power.
