Sixteen-time Grammy winner, actress, fashion icon and new mom Beyoncé has something new to add to her résumé: She has been voted People magazine's World's Most Beautiful Woman. Reflecting on the honor, she told the publication that she feels more beautiful than ever since the arrival of her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter:

From MTV News:

"I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth," says PEOPLE's 2012 World's Most Beautiful Woman. "I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth."

The "Crazy in Love" singer, 30, and her husband of four years, Jay-Z, 42, have gone gaga for Blue, born Jan. 7 in New York City. "She's just the cutest thing," gushes Beyoncé, who croons one-of-a-kind tunes to her daughter and professes to "love" changing diapers.

For more of Beyoncé's exclusive interview -- in which she shares her beauty secrets, reveals how she lost the baby weight and sets the record straight on all the rumors -- pick up this week's special issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.
