Beyonce named People's most beautiful woman for 2012
(CBS News) People magazine is naming Beyonce as the World's Most Beautiful Woman for 2012.
But the 16-time Grammy winner says her proudest title is mom.
"I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth," Beyonce told People. "I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth."
The 30-year-old singer and her husband rapper Jay-Z welcomed daughter Blue Ivy Carter in New York on Jan. 7, 2012.
"The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy," she told the magazine.
Beyonce covers the magazine's special double issue that hits newsstands this Friday.
