Someone is running down the aisle to the alter with a bun in the oven and that someone isâ€¦. .Alicia Keys!
A rep for Keys confirms the before rumors, that she is indeed engaged and expecting!
Keys, 30, who has been dating producer, Swizz Beatz since 2008 and recently accepted his proposal that reportedly occurred on Jan 24th in Hawaii and the couple is expecting their first child together. They will be getting married at the end of this year in a private ceremony.
Beatz, 31, whose full name is Kasseem Dean has two sons from previous relationships â€” Prince Nasir, 9 and Kasseem Jr., 3.
This will be the first marriage for the Grammy winning, Keys but Beatz is currently in the process of divorcing his wife of three years, singer Mashonda and boy does it seem like a sticky situation!
In an open letter published last September, Mashonda wrote, â€śIf you are reading this Alicia, let me start by saying, you know what you did.â€ť She goes on to say, â€śYou know how you contributed to the ending of my marriageâ€¦If itâ€™s so, that you and my husband are meant to be together, then God bless you both and I hope you never have to deal with what I did.â€ť
Even with all that animosity going on the couple seemed to be very happy and clearly in love when they were seen together at the Keep a Child Alive charity event they attended together at Londonâ€™s Black Ball May 27th, 2010. They confirmed the pregnancy when they couldnâ€™t deny the â€ś Baby Bumpâ€ť questions any longer! Keyâ€™s is Freedom Tour ends on June 4th. She will also perform at the FIFA World Cupâ€™s kickoff concert on June 10th in South Africa.
I hope she doesnâ€™t have morning sickness!
