Salma Hayek featured in People en Espanol's Most Beautiful People; talks about Valentina

04/30/2008 at 02:00 PM ET

Salmamom_cbbActress Salma Hayek, 41, has been named Most Beautiful Mother in the list of People en Espanol’s Most Beautiful People, featured in their new June issue.  Salma, who has a daughter, Valentina Paloma, 7 months, with her fiancée François-Henri Pinault, admits that ever since the birth of her daughter, she can not erase a smile off her face.

I am smiling so much more than before.  Valentina has changed me a lot.

Salma’s brother, Sami, 34, who has never seen such a "dedicated" mother, had only compliments for his sister’s parenting skills.

You guys don’t have any idea what a good mother she is.  I haven’t seen anyone so dedicated as she is.

As for Valentine’s future, Salma already has plans for her daughter to be an active participant in charities and humanity efforts.  By starting young, Salma knows that later in life it will not come as a burden to help other people in need, but rather as a natural part of her daily life.

Valentina is going to do [charitable work] as part of her normal things that one does, it’s not going to be a [forced] effort.  I want her to grow up seeing how to help other people.

It also says that while she has no plans to marry, she doesn’t rule out the idea of a little brother or sister for Valentina.

She is the most beautiful woman inside and out! Bravo Salma! Valentina Paloma is just precious. Best wishes for Salma and her family today and always!

She’s so beautiful, looks younger than 41. Maybe in another year she will be pregnant again. She seems like a great lady overall and a good mommy.
