It’s a happy time for singer/actress Alicia Keys and producer Swizz Beatz (his real name’s Kasseem Dean). Reps from both sides told People that they “are expecting a a baby and are engaged to be married in a private ceremony later this year.”
They’ve been together since fall of 2008, and this particular baby-wedding bonanza announcement came after the couple attended the Black Ball in London which benefits Keys’ Keep a Child Alive charity. This is first marriage and baby for Miz Keys. Beatz is the papa to Kasseem Jr and Prince Nasir, both from previous relationships.
Friends and family could not be happier. A pal revealed back in January, “[Alicia] is with the man who has inspired so much of her music and her album [The Element of Freedom].” Beatz has been proclaiming his love from the beginning too, saying last year, “What we have is so precious.” Congratulations. We’re guessing you two will always make beautiful music together!
