Mexican actress Lucero was selected Star of the Year by People en Español magazine, which devotes the cover of its special 2012 "Best and Worst" edition to her.

A smiling Lucero, who is also a singer, was photographed in a striking purple outfit for the December-January edition of the magazine, to which she confessed that she is in love.

"I'm very happy about how I am now emotionally in my life, very stable, in love and satisfied, and I feel full, complete," said the artist, who has two children by former husband Manuel Mijares.

Lucero, 43, told the magazine that her current beau, a Mexican businessman, has "very many" good qualities, but she reiterated that she has no plans to marry again.

"I already got married once. My kids have a marvelous father and I don't believe I'll do it again," said the actress, who this year had several reasons to be happy: the celebration of 32 uninterrupted years of her career and the success of the soap opera in which she starred with Mexican actor Jaime Camil, "Por ella soy Eva."

People en Español also selected Puerto Rican journalist Maria Celeste Arraras as Newscaster of the Year, Mexican actor Eugenio Siller, the star of "A Maid in Manhattan," as Actor of the Year and Galilea Montijo, also from Mexico, as Host of 2012. EFE
