Just In: Baby Bump & Wedding Bells For Alicia Keys!

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.

Music News: Is Alicia Keys really pregnant plus engagement to Swizz Beatz Confirmed?!

Random internet gossip sites are ranting that Alicia Keys is pregnant. Pictures of the star performing at a concert in the Netherlands showed the pretty singer with what seemed to be a swollen tummy. The convincing images spread like wildfire over the web causing widespread commotion.

Is  Alicia  Keys really pregnant?

Last year the New Yorker came under fire for starting a relationship with music producer, Swizz Beats who was still, at the time, married to estranged wife, singer Mashonda. News that she may be carrying his child set tongues wagging.  In the midst of the pandemonium, an insider told an American gossip site that Alicia’s camp had started to act shifty.

They said: “They’re saying that she’s decided to take a year off starting in [the fall] for ‘personal reasons’ No one has the [guts] to ask about it. We’ll all know soon enough.”

However, Alicia Keys’ manager, Jeff Robinson has since hit out at the pregnancy claims denying that his client is with child, saying:

“This rumor is 100 percent false. Alicia is currently overseas on tour and will be touring the U.S., Europe and Australia throughout the winter. And she’s using her spare time to continue to raise money and awareness for important causes like HIV/AIDS.” He said.

Today, comes what could be more proof that she is in fact, with child.

The Empire State singer has moved in with her boyfriend Swizz Beatz and has gotten engaged! As they say, first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes…

Congrats are decidedly in order, but there is at least one person who is not happy at the way this relationship is panning out.

Mashonda Deen, Swizz’s ex, is involved in a big messy lawsuit with the producer, partially over $334,000 in child support he hasn’t paid. The 7.5 carat engagement ring now adorning Alicia’s finger cost a large sum and the penthouse they’re staying in clocks in at a cool $14.5 million.

Swizz should pay up what he owes and just get a move on with his new life with Alicia. Even if he does write a check for this wrong, I’m gonna go ahead and say I’m pretty sure Mashonda will not be invited to the wedding.
