PEOPLE officially announced this morning that Jennifer Lopez won the coveted cover spot for their annual "Most Beautiful" issue!
The mommy, TV star, actress and singer is the first to admit that it takes work to stay looking so fabulous. "The thing is, it's part of my job," says Lopez, 41. "I don't want anybody thinking it's easy. It does take time and it's hard work. HDTV wide-screen is nobody's friend!"
But La Lopez actually says she feels most beautiful and comfortable when she's at home with hubby Marc Anthony and 3-year-old twins Max and Emme. She rarely wears makeup with her family and says, "That's when I'm my happiest. Just being able to touch my face and rub my eyes and put my fingers in my hair and not having to worry about messing it up. It's so much better."
It looks like daughter Emme may be following in mommy's footsteps. "She is very girly-girl, just like me since I was very little. She loves for me to paint her nails," Lopez says. "She lays out her clothes on the floor like I do with my stylist and she's like, 'This matches very good!' "
