People magazine has named Beyonce as this year's most beautiful woman - and she's sharing the spotlight with her infant daughter, Blue Ivy.
"I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth," the 16-time Grammy winner and new mom told the magazine.
The superstar singer and her husband Jay-Z welcomed their daughter in January, and Beyonce said she's "never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth... She's just the cutest thing.”
The 30-year-old also revealed that she sings unique lullabies to little Blue, and claimed to actually “love" changing diapers.
And as for which parent Blue most resembles, Bey would only say that "she looks like Blue. She's her own person."
"The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy," she continued about her bundle of joy. "The word 'love' means something completely different now."
