Myrka Dellanos and daughter Alexa featured in People en Espanol's Most Beautiful People; discuss media attention

04/29/2008 at 02:00 PM ET

Cuban-American journalist and television host, Myrka Dellanos, 42, and her daughter Alexa Carolina, 14, were named People en Espanol’s Most Beautiful Mother and Teenage Daughter duo in their newest issue.  Eighth-grader Alexa, told People en Espanol, that she is looking forward to her "Quince Años " coming up in December and that she already has big plans.

I want a big party with a lot of people, I want everything super-glamorous.

Myrka, who dislikes the media attention, had a surprise marriage ceremony to her now husband, Ulysses Daniel Alfonso, 27, in April so that no cameras would be around to snap photos of the wedding.  Her daughter, on the other hand, is the complete opposite.  Alexa says she loves the spotlight and often, when she spots paparazzi following her mom, she jumps in the picture!

Unlike my mother, I love all the show and fame.  When there’s paparazzi around my mom, I always put myself in front of the cameras.

Alexa’s father is Dr. Alejandro Loynaz.

Wow!! I have not seen Alexa in years!! She is all grown up. Alexa and Myrka are beatiful. God Bless them!!

Ps. And more power to Myrka for married a man younger than her…he he 🙂

These are two pretty ladies, but I wish magazines would not just speak of physical characteristics but personality. I don’t know these people or whether or not they have great personalities because nothing in the aricle ever alludes to that. Beauty is much more than apperarance.

I think they are pretty. I would like to see a 14 year old look more her age. For my taste her make up and clothes are too adult. no need for piggy tails and jumpers, just more age appropriate

They both are beautiful. I can’t believe the body on Myrka. She used to date Luis Miguel.

J-Lin- The main, American version of People actually DOES do that. In their annual “100 Most Beautiful” issue, they include a section called: “Beautiful Inside and Out”, where they profile celebs who support various causes and help those in need (for example, Brad and Angelina were profiled last year for their humantarian work, and Nicole Kidman was profiled for the work she does in supporting Women’s Rights).

All of that said, I do see your point. I believe that beauty comes from the inside, not the outside. If you are beautiful on the inside, that makes you beautiful on the outside, no matter what your physical charteristics are! 🙂

Mykra looks great for her age, and her daughter looks like the dad a lot

That kid looks so uncomfortable. She looks like she would rather be in jeans and a t-shirt. Not the kind that can carry off being glamarous.

Just showing support for Myrka.

Myrka, you are a beautiful woman and are an inspiration to the latin community. Do not let anyone ruin that for you.

You deserve the best in your life, you have worked hard to be where you are now. I’m sure God has your soulmate still waiting for you.

Wishing the best, Dios aprieta pero no ahorca y te esta dando la oportunidad que habras tus ojos temprano. No heches a perder todo lo que has logrado en toda tu vida en unos dias. No creo que meresca tanto sacrificio de tu parte.

Primero Dios, despues tu y tu hija, lo otro viene y va.

Con mucho carino y siempre deseandote exitos porgue personas como tu hacen nuestra comunidad latina mas fuerte.

Eres un modelo para mucho.

Espero mis palabras sean de ayuda en este momento tan dificil.
