Bluebell Madonna Halliwell

Geri Halliwell was once the idol of little girls everywhere, as the feisty red-headed Ginger Spice in the musical group the Spice Girls throughout the 1990s. But these days, one little girl in particular looks up to Geri – her 7-year-old daughter Bluebell Madonna Halliwell.

Born May 14, 2006, Bluebell and single mum Geri are thick as thieves. “I hate it when I don’t see Bluebell. It’s like I’m addicted to her,” Geri has told Red magazine. So wherever this celebrity mum goes – to Australia to appear as a judge on “Australia’s Got Talent”, to the French Riviera for a summer getaway, or simply out shopping near her London home – Bluebell is not far behind.

Mother-daughter duo

Singer-songwriter Geri has commented that being a single working mum to Bluebell is “a real juggle”: “For me, it’s that balancing act between giving my child the time she needs, but also finding something that is going to satisfy me as a working woman.”

In fact, it’s single parenthood that led 40-year-old Geri to branch out beyond her successful music career into children’s books. As part of a six-book deal with Macmillan Children’s Books, Geri is the author of the Ugenia Lavender series, which follow the adventures of brave and sassy 9-year-old Ugenia, a character based on what Geri calls her “inner brat”.

It doesn’t seem that Bluebell, whose father is reported to be director Sacha Gervasi, has inherited any of her mother’s inner brat, however. Comparing her and Bluebell to the oil-and-water mother-daughter duo on British sitcom “Absolutely Fabulous”, Geri told Hello!: “With my daughter, it’s like Ab Fab – she’s the sensible one. She tells me to stop skipping down the street. She says, ‘Mummy, stop it. You’re embarrassing me.’”

Spice Girl fashion

Curly-haired Bluebell has certainly taken after her mother’s bold fashion sense, however. She is often seen around town with mum sporting bright-coloured dresses, skirts and jumpers. This young red-head has even been known to rock a fedora or two!

It’s no surprise that pretty Bluebell already knows how to dress to impress. After all, her middle name honours style icon Madonna, and her godmother is the posh former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham.

But Geri needn’t worry – Bluebell is clearly mummy’s little girl. Just last year, a 6-year-old Bluebell wanted to be carried to the car in the arms of her fit mother after school in London. Happy mum couldn’t help but smile.

”I know everyone is proud of their child, but she really is lovely and I’m blessed,” Geri has said.
