asp.net, mvc 3, html helper

<label class="control-label" for="inputIndemnitorFirstName">
 First name<span class="form-required" title="This field is required.">*</span>                        
</label>

I use MVC 3 and htmlhelper and @Html.LabelFor(m => m.firstName , new { @class = "control-label" } )

The following overload LabelExtensions is working but now I want to add
<span class="form-required" title="This field is required.">*</span>
INSIDE of the <label></label>

What I need to change for the LabelExtensions and the HtmlHelper in the cshtml?

Thanks


public static class LabelExtensions
    {
        public static MvcHtmlString LabelFor<TModel, TValue>(this HtmlHelper<TModel> html, Expression<Func<TModel, TValue>> expression, object htmlAttributes)
        {
            return LabelFor(html, expression, new RouteValueDictionary(htmlAttributes));
        }
        public static MvcHtmlString LabelFor<TModel, TValue>(this HtmlHelper<TModel> html, Expression<Func<TModel, TValue>> expression, IDictionary<string, object> htmlAttributes)
        {
            ModelMetadata metadata = ModelMetadata.FromLambdaExpression(expression, html.ViewData);
            string htmlFieldName = ExpressionHelper.GetExpressionText(expression);
            string labelText = metadata.DisplayName ?? metadata.PropertyName ?? htmlFieldName.Split('.').Last();
            if (String.IsNullOrEmpty(labelText))
            {
                return MvcHtmlString.Empty;
            }

            TagBuilder tag = new TagBuilder("label");
            tag.MergeAttributes(htmlAttributes);
            tag.Attributes.Add("for", html.ViewContext.ViewData.TemplateInfo.GetFullHtmlFieldId(htmlFieldName));

            TagBuilder span = new TagBuilder("span");
            span.SetInnerText(labelText);

            // assign <span> to <label> inner html
            tag.InnerHtml = span.ToString(TagRenderMode.Normal);

            return MvcHtmlString.Create(tag.ToString(TagRenderMode.Normal));
        }
    }
