Alicia Machado was crowned with the best title of all on wednesday: mother! The 1996 Miss Universe winner gave birth to her daughter Dinorah in a Miami hospital. Machado is reserved about her relationship with the father of Dinorah, who is said to be a 48-year-old Mexican businessman.

According to rumors, the 31-year-old model-turned-actress hasn’t revealed the identity of the father because he’s allegedly a married man. However, the Venezuelan beauty confirmed in an interview with PEOPLE EN ESPAÑOL that she’s kept quite about his identity because he isn’t involved in the entertainment world and she’d like to respect his privacy.

The most important task at hand for Machado right now is to raise a healthy daughter, and to give her all the love in the world.
