Alicia Keys, the R & B singer, announced the news of the newest upcoming family member on Instagram recently. The news comes at the time of her four-year anniversary with hubby, Swizz Beatz, whose real name is Kasseem Dean.
The new pregnancy makes the second child produced by the couple. Their first child, Egypt, is three years old. Sources said the newest addition to the family will be a baby girl, whom Keys quoted as being “an angel.” Since their recent anniversary, Swizz Beatz has also expressed his love for Keys on Instagram.
The photo that accompanies Keys’ message of love to her husband is the most recent picture since the new announcement. The photo shows the two very intimately acknowledging the new pregnancy, where Keys is in a very joyous state as Swizz Beats thoughtfully rubs her belly.
Alicia Keys has managed to become a superstar R & B singer and model, as well as a wife and second-time mother. Many of the songbird’s supporters are saying she deserves to be happy. The Instagram comments and photos confirm that the two are experiencing equal bliss with the impending arrival of their baby girl.
Although Alicia Keys, age 33, has not received as much media attention this year, she has enjoyed worldwide popularity. Aside from being a multiple Grammy Award-winner, Keys is also an acclaimed songwriter and musician.
Recently, Keys announced the newest upcoming family member on Instagram. Last October, Keys was interviewed by ABC News where she spoke about her successful career and her married life. Keys was very confident and self-assured, as she explained how she developed herself into a mega superstar over the years. She became very emotional and excited as she described what it was like being a first-time mother. In the interview, she told reporters that she was very happy with married life and planned to wait a bit longer before adding another family member.
Keys was also noticed for a surprisingly short hairstyle she wore when the program aired, which was very a drastic change from the longer hair she donned for many years. When asked why she cut off her beautiful hair, Keys said it was a positive change and she recognized that after the birth of her son, Egypt, she felt empowered like she could do anything. During the interview, Keys was asked if she would ever grow her hair long again, and at the time, the superstar seemed determined to permanently maintain the new style.
Sources said Keys may change her hairstyle in the near future, since she recently agreed to become a vocal mentor and advisor to Pharrell Williams, a judge on the NBC television show The Voice. The next season begins on September 22.
Keys was originally found by producers of Arista and Columbia Records. She reached instant success just shortly after the debut of her first album, Songs in A Minor, in 2001 with J Records. In 2003, she came out with her second album, The Diary of Alicia Keys. However, Keys may be best known for her latest hit, Girl On Fire, which featured hip-hop icon Nicki Minaj and premiered in 2012.
Since R & B singer Alicia Keys announced the newest upcoming family member, there are many people wondering if she will continue with her music career. With a new baby on the way, it appears that Keys is settling deeper into family life and motherhood. However, millions of her fans are waiting to hear if the superstar will come out with any new music. Keys just finished a large concert tour in December 2013 that spanned over 8 months and where she provided her fans huge doses of the famous tunes they have come to love.
