It’s no surprise that PEOPLE magazine has named Beyoncé the most beautiful woman in the world. The new mom, 30, seems to beam with beauty ever since giving birth to her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter earlier this year.
On the coveted annual special double-issue cover she looks stunning while wearing eye-catching turquoise jewelry. This marks the ninth time that the superstar has made the popular list.
Inside the issue, the “Love On Top,” singer dishes about motherhood and shares several beauty secrets and tips.
“I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth,” she tells PEOPLE in the exclusive interview. “I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth.”
“She’s just the cutest thing,” Beyoncé says her daughter. When asked who does the baby most resembles, the singer gushes, “She looks like Blue.”
“The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy,” she tells the magazine. “The word ‘love’ means something completely different now.”
