The results are in. And it looks like People Magazine's highly-anticipated World's Most Beautiful Woman 2012 has been announced. And (surprise, surprise) it's none other than 16-time Grammy-award winner, Beyoncé Knowles.

In her interview with the magazine, Beyonce, 30, says she feels more beautiful than ever since giving birth to 3.5-month-old Blue Ivy. “I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth,” she says. "I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth.”

“The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy,” she tells the mag. “The word ‘love’ means something completely different now.”

Beyoncé also shares that she and hubby Jay-Z, 42, are head over heels for baby Blue: "She’s just the cutest thing."

And does Blue look like her mama, the World's Most Beautiful Woman? Nope, Beyoncé insists, “she looks like Blue. She’s her own person.”

Check out the rest of the interview in the special issue of People Magazine, on stands Friday! Look out for deets on Beyoncé's beauty secrets, post-baby weightloss secrets, all those pesky rumours (hmm...), and more!
