Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell says that she feels like her 2 1/2-year-old daughter, Bluebell, has changed her life in one big way – it made her sort out her insecurities.
“In the past, I always had my hang-ups, believing I wasn’t pretty enough, or a good enough singer, or thin enough,” she admits. “But now I’m much more accepting of myself. A lot of my body issues have naturally settled down. I don’t work out because I don’t want to sacrifice any time I can spend with Bluebell. I have a history of eating disorders but, as a mother, you think of being an example to your child. I’m so much more balanced than I was.”
Bluebell is Geri’s daughter with screenwriter Sacha Gervasi.
After endless speculation – thanks to her gaining weight for her role on Desperate Housewives - that 33-year-old Eva Longoria was pregnant, and the subsequent proof that the rumors were false, Eva says that she definitely wants kids!
“We can’t wait to start a family. I’m so excited about that chapter in our lives and you’ll know what it happens.”
She also revealed that she and Tony “still feel like newlyweds” and that “married life” agrees with her because she’s “very traditional and I’m very domestic and Tony is the same way.”
She also admitted some of her guilt pleasures – spas and shoes.
“I’m a spa junkie. If I have two hours before I have to go to set, I will run to the spa and get a massage and sit in the jacuzzi. I love shoes! They’re beautifully made. They’re displayed in my closet like art pieces.”
