The Spice Girls recently got together ahead of their reunion.
Emma told The Sun newspaper: ''We went and had lunch at Geri's the other day. We had tea and chatted about kids.
''We can be around each other and spend all different times with each other because we know each other so well. We're great friends.''
Emma previously insisted the spicy reunion isn't yet a done deal, but sources say they have already been making plans for next summer.
An insider previously said:''This will be one of the biggest pop reunions of all time.
''There is a huge demand for the Spice Girls to get back together, especially with the nostalgia around the two-decade anniversary of their first release next summer.
''Mel B flew into London last month to secretly agree the plan with the other three girls. They should each make more than ten million pounds from this.''
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
