The 'Countdown' singer says becoming a mother has completely changed the meaning of love for her.

Beyonce has described her and Jay'Z's daughter Blue Ivy as "her own person" and says becoming a mother has made her feel like she has a "true legacy".

The 'Love On Top' singer made the comments after being declared the most beautiful woman in the world by People magazine, where she explained that the meaning of love has changed for her since becoming a parent.

"She looks like Blue. She's her own person," Beyonce told the magazine, when asked which parent Blue Ivy takes after the most. "She's just the cutest thing.

"The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy," the 'Countdown' singer revealed. "The world 'love' means something completely different now."

The 'Best Thing I Never Had' singer gave birth to Blue Ivy at the start of January and has been regularly pictured out and about with her daughter around their home in New York City.

Beyonce is set to make her return to the stage next month with three consecutive shows at Revel Atlantic City starting on 25th May.
