Alicia Keys is in a motherhood state of mind: She’s pregnant with her first child and officially engaged to Swizz Beatz. Alicia is indeed 4 months pregnant will be married at a private ceremony later this year. Representatives for the couple confirmed the news Thursday night.
Beatz and Keys have been friends for several years and worked together on one song for her current album, “The Element of Freedom,” the publicist said. He has also written hits for Beyonce‘, Jay-Z amongst others.
Keys last year teamed up with Jay-Z for a hit song about New York called “Empire State of Mind.” She’s among a string of international artists slated to perform at a June 10 concert to mark the start of the World Cup soccer tournament in South Africa.
Swizz Beatz, — whose real name is Kasseem Dean — has one son from his marriage to Mashonda Tifrere. He also has a second son from a previous relationship.
They would not say when the child is due, but weeks of photos have shown Keys noticeably fuller in the mid-section and sporting a collection of loose-fitting black tops.
“They’re very happy,” a source close to the couple said.
