By Florida Mae Acampado | 2 years ago

It’s another bouncing baby boy for Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz! After celebrating Christmas, the couple has also celebrated the birth of their second child.

In the early morning of Saturday, Dec. 27, 2014, Keys gave birth to baby Genesis Ali Dean. In a photo she posted days later on Instagram, it showed her baby’s records and footprints. She captioned it with: “The joy of joy is joy!! It's a boy!! we are so grateful!! #blessings!!”


The proud parents weren’t the only ones who were excited for their baby’s arrival. The couple’s eldest son, four-year-old Egypt, was also thrilled of his younger brother’s arrival. In an interview with People last October 2014, Keys tells of how excited Egypt is of her pregnancy.

“I think he’s super excited because he’s not going to be the youngest anymore. He’s always kissing my belly,” shared Keys on People.

In May 2010, rapper and music producer Beatz and singer Keys announced their engagement and the upcoming arrival of their first child. Two months later, they were married in a private home on the Mediterranean Sea. Then, in October, their son Egypt was born.

In July 2013, Keys also took to Instagram to announce her second pregnancy. She posted a photo of her and her husband in celebration of their fourth wedding anniversary. In the photo, Keys was shown wearing a dress that flattered her baby bump.

In her TV appearance on The View on Monday, Sept. 29, 2014, Keys revealed that she is due to give at the end of December. She also said, “Being a mother has definitely given me more of a fierceness and an understanding of just what I believe in, that much more.”

Congratulations Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz!
