Let's be honest: Hollywood is filled with genetically-blessed women. But who is the loveliest of them all? Well, according to People magazine, it's Beyonce Knowles. The new mom has been named People's World's Most Beautiful Woman 2012 and graces the cover of the mag's new special double issue.

"I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth," Beyonce, who welcomed her first child, daughter Blue Ivy, with husband Jay-Z in January, says in an exclusive interview with the magazine. "I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth."
Beyonce is so head-over-heels in love with her little girl that she even claims to "love" changing Blue's diapers. She also sings original songs to her little star. "She's just the cutest thing," the 30-year-old gushes. "The word 'love' means something completely different now."
