Although she again declined the opportunity to identify the father of her baby, former Miss Universe Alicia Machado — 5-months pregnant with her first child, a girl — did reveal that her fiancé is a 48-year-old Mexican businessman, and that she hopes their child will inherit the best they both have to offer.

I think that between my genetics and his, the baby could turn out to be just what I want in a child…I love my boyfriend because he is a noble man, sentimental and a giving person.

For now, Alicia, 31, fills her time daydreaming about the life her child will go on to lead. She tells People En Espanol that in those dreams she imagines the baby "in high school and with perfect clothes, clean, taken care of, polite, a doll."  Pregnancy has been a revelation for Alicia, who says that expectant motherhood makes her "feel like a complete woman" and that she doesn’t know "if there’s anything left for me to do [in life]."

I’ve never lived with anyone; I’venever lived with a significant other. I’m afraid of the routine. I’mdoing well. I’m enjoying the pregnancy. I’ve got all of the support andlove of my husband [her boyfriend].
