Geri Halliwell says that her daughter is embarrassed by her.
The Spice Girls star admits her six-year-old child Bluebell Madonna - whose father is her former lover Sacha Gervasi - sometimes feels uncomfortable because of her mother's exuberant personality, but the singer nevertheless feels "blessed" to have such a lovely child.
Halliwell told the UK edition of HELLO! magazine: "With my daughter, it's like Ab Fab (TV show Absolutely Fabulous) - she's the sensible one. She tells me to stop skipping down the street. She says, 'Mummy, stop it. You're embarrassing me.'
"I know everyone is proud of their child, but she really is lovely and I'm blessed. Its like growing a plant - when it starts to flower you're like, wow! I helped to cultivate that personality.
"I try to allow her to be who she is rather than impose what I think she should be," she said.
Halliwell, 40, has been single since splitting from her boyfriend of two-and-a-half years, Henry Beckwith, in March.
Although she misses the intimacy of a relationship, the Wannabe hitmaker believes the right person will come along when she is ready.
Halliwell reflected: "I think to have a good relationship with someone you have to have a good relationship with yourself. I don't really know what the answer is, but I quite like having someone to cuddle.
"I like that intimacy, it would be wonderful. But I feel OK either way. It's got to be the right person.
"I realise now that when I operate from a place of giving and sharing, rather than taking, I seem to be rewarded in all areas of my life."
