The 31-year-old supermodel split from the 'Lord of the Rings' star, with whom she has three-year-old son Flynn, last October after three years of marriage, but insists they still have a ''very good'' platonic relationship because she prefers to be ''positive.''
The Australian beauty told the June issue of the UK edition of Harper's Bazaar magazine: ''We speak every day. We're really close, we're going to be a family forever and we both really do love each other.
''We have genuine love and respect for each other. We're very connected and I feel grateful for that. We created something beautiful together and we both remind ourselves how lucky we are to have that. And yeah, it's good. He's a great dad. I'm lucky.''
She added: ''Everyone goes through challenging periods in their life. That's inevitable and it's part of being human. I feel like it's a daily process to be positive. It's something that's a choice and I have different tools, like meditation, even prayer - my grandmother taught me to pray when I was young - and just finding that inner peace.''
Miranda's contract with Victoria's Secret also came to an end last year and she has no regrets about parting ways with the lingerie brand, as she is able to spend more time with Flynn.
She said: ''It was a big chunk of time that I wasn't able to commit to because I'm a mother. I used to be in two different countries every single week. I made a conscious decision to shift gears. I'm very much a people-pleaser at heart -- I feel that if everyone else is happy, then I'm happy -- but I'm learning the power of saying no and putting my foot down.''
The actress spoke about raising her 11 year old daughter Matilda in the wake of Heath Ledger's death eight years ago.
