Confirmed: Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz Are Engaged, Expecting a Baby

Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys

The rumors can finally be put to rest. Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz are officially planning a wedding and expecting a baby.

The singer and producer “are expecting a baby and are engaged to be married in a private ceremony later this year,” reps for the couple confirm to PEOPLE.

This will be the first child for Alicia and third for Swizz, who is father to two sons, Kasseem Jr., 3, and Prince, both from previous relationships. He was previously married to R&B singer Mashonda.

The high-profile couple has kept their relationship quiet, but friends say, “They’re very happy.” They were all smiles at Thursday night’s Keep a Child Alive Black Ball in London.

Whispers about Alicia’s pregnancy began to spread after she showed signs of a baby bump during appearances in the U.K. this week.

    Good for her, but I honestly think she could do way better than Swizz… and why must she marry him so soon? Don’t get me wrong, I wish her all the best, but if they go through with the marriage, it probably won’t end well.

    Things that start off bad can’t end well..You can’t build a happy future on someone else’s misery!!…Happy that she is having a baby, babies are gifts, but she decided to do so with the wrong man, a married man? He has two previous children by different women..Every girl thinks they are special and what was previously done to someone else won’t happen to them….I just wish it were under better circumstances.

    He has three kids from three different women: two sons from his previous relationship and his ex-wife singer Mashonda and a daughter from Russian singer Jahna Sebastian. Alicia will just make baby momma number 4 and the way you get them is the way you loose him.

    all i’m saying is she better hope he really loves her to be faithful to her, cause what goes around can DEFINITELY come back around. Hope he doesn’t get bored with her and start cheating again. Good luck to them though, they’ll need it!lmao.

    Omg, shut the hell up! Fix your roller wrap or sumthin’! All these broads doggin’ out this couple AS IF they’re prophets & disciples! I mean, the absolute ONLY reason you people are even commentin’ is because his ex-wife made public how she felt her relationship ended & who she blamed, BUT WHO SAID THAT’S HONESTLY FACTUAL? Her side of the story ISN’T the only side, so with that said…why even dwell on that drama? Ya’ll don’t know anything about Mashonda, Swizz Beatz, or Alicia Keys except the music they make & the general information posted on Wikipedia. So, unless ya’ll they neighbors or you & Mashonda get ya’ll tracks glued in by the same chick then either CONGRATULATE these people for being blessed with a child or shut up!

    Who told you that YOU were perfect enough to criticize anyone? They OBVIOUSLY lied.

    Oh & by the way….

    @NCK
    if you check out Bossip or simply Google Jahna Sebastian, then you can read the interview where she states that those Swizz Beatz paternity rumors were started by bloggers (kinda like you kiddo) & she NEVER stated in Russia or the US that they were even involved.

    ….keep up.
