MLE for Naive Bayes in R

I am using the naivebayes function of the e1071 library. Some example commands are:

model = naiveBayes(Species ~ ., data = iris)
pred = predict(model, iris[,])


My question is: how can I obtain the maximum likelihood estimate for the conditional probability distribution of this model?

This seems a bit ambiguous... What's wrong with model$table? • unfortunately, i have no background in statistics so i don't know what to expect from a "MLE" output. sorry for that. so, when i print model$table, i get something like below. is this MLE?
