Ginger Spice may look amazing these days, but she's more concerned with being a role model for her daughter than with spending her life at the gym.

"I want to have a healthy body image for Bluebell," Geri Halliwell tells the U.K.'s Glamour of her daughter, who turns 2 on May 14. "I think it's good to promote a healthy example, so whatever shape she is, she loves herself."

"I used to be an exercise freak," says the singer, who has batteld bulimia in the past. "[Now] yoga has always been a consistent, loving thing to do. I'm not into the Madonna-esque yoga-cising."

Adds Halliwell: "I think the outside reflects the inside, and where I am now, I just feel content and accepting. I think that's the key to having a good body."

The singer adds that fame has been good to her but doesn't fulfill her, so she's now writing children's books.

As for healing her rift with Posh Spice, Geri says of Victoria Beckham: "I absolutely adore Victoria. She is a very close friend of mine and godmother to my daughter ... she does what she does and I respect and admire her. She's worked incredibly hard."
