It’s a boy for Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz! After nine months with a bun in the oven, the Grammy-winning songstress has given birth to a son named Egypt Daoud Dean. She reportedly checked herself into New York’s St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center yesterday, delivering her child in a private section of the maternity ward.
This is Keys’ first child, while Swizz welcomes his third son. The couple wed in the Mediterranean a few months after announcing that Keys was pregnant with their child.
“I’m so thankful for everything I been blessed with in my life wowwwwww! #realtalk,” tweeted Swizz late last night.
Friends have already given their blessing to the new parents. “I’m So excited 2 Congratulate my brother @ therealswizzz and @Alicia keys on there New, baby, boy!!!!!!!” tweeted Mary J. Blige, who has recently been working with Swizzy in the studio.
Busta Rhymes also shared in the joyous occasion, tweeting, “CONGRATS 2 MY BROTHER AND SISTER @THEREALSWIZZZ & @AliciaKeys 4 bringing the life of a future King into the universe.Love, light & blessings.”
