They are expecting their first child together later this year.
It's the first marriage for Keys, 29, and the couple's first child together. While the newlyweds don't know the gender of their baby, Beatz (real name: Kasseem Dean, 31) says the addition of a child will be nothing short of magical. "Whatever we're blessed with, that baby is being born to blessed parents," he recently told PEOPLE. "Alicia is definitely one of those great parents-to-be. She's super ready. Super glowing. Super happy." (PEOPLE)
Swizz and Alicia's union was set in controversy as his ex-wife, R&B singer Mashonda, spoke out about Swizz and Alicia's affair while he was still married.
My husband admitted to having his affair on Mothers Day 2008, six months after I found out. I didn't sleep for a whole year. I had to take pills to sleep because I'd wake up in the middle of the night crying...They are just now going public but this has been going on for a very long time... I didn't want to put that out there for my son. I didn't want him to see his father as a monster. But the shit is deep." (Vibe)
Their engagement was made public via a statement last May.
Alicia Keys is in a motherhood state of mind: She's pregnant with her first child. The Grammy Award-winning R&B singer has been dating producer Swizz Beatz, who has written hits for Beyonce (bee-AHN'-say), Jay-Z and others. They're engaged to be married at a private ceremony later this year. Representatives for the couple confirmed the news Thursday night. (Associated Press)
