The 'Countdown' star says she feels more beautiful since she's given birth.

Beyonce has been named the most beautiful woman in the world by People magazine.

The 'Love On Top' star was awarded the prize following the birth of her first child, Blue Ivy Carter, in January.

"I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth," Beyonce said about collecting the 2012 award. "I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth."

Beyonce came first ahead of Modern Family star Sofia Vergara and Snow White and the Huntsman star Charlize Theron, who came second and third respectively.

Bey has been keeping a low profile since Blue was born in January but is set to return to the stage next month for a run of special gigs in the US.
