The Australian model and television presenter, who gave birth to Dylan Vivienne last September, said that she and her husband Jim Clark feel "over the moon" to be parents.
Hinze told Woman's Day magazine: "Jim and I are over the moon [that] we get to wake up every morning to our gorgeous little girl. We really are blessed. Becoming a mum for the first time has been magical.
"Every day, Dylan becomes more beautiful, healthy, happy and so full of life. Dylan is a sweet little girl. We are very lucky that she is a really good baby."
She also defended her relationship with 67-year-old Clark, saying that they "love each other", so the age difference and constant media scrutiny does not bother her.
She has previously said of her marriage: "People can say what they want. As long as those closest to me know that I'm happy, that's all that matters."
During her pregnancy, Hinze said that Clark wanted her to be the "monster" parent in order to encourage Dylan to be "daddy's little girl".
Hinze said: "I'm going to be the one that has to reprimand and he'll have all the fun."
