There’s also been rumors that Keys is pregnant. Well, the couple have finally put the rumors to bed, with an official announcement that they’re expecting a baby … and are getting married.

A representative for Keys and Swizz released a statement to People confirming the news on Thursday (May 27), saying “[they]are expecting a baby and are engaged to be married in a private ceremony later this year.”

This will be Key’s first marriage, as well as first child. Beatz (real name: Kasseem Dean) has two other children from previous relationships — Kasseem Jr., 3, and Prince Nasir, 9.

Swizz’s divorce from singer Mashonda was granted two weeks ago, and the public announcement was made this week.

Despite her pregnancy, Keys is currently on tour promoting her latest album, The Element of Freedom, which is scheduled to end next month.

  1. It’s no surprise that there couple since swizz mess around with Alicia keys while he’s married. I wish them the best in their relationship

  2. I love how, in today’s world, there’s an announcement of pregnancy, followed by an announcement of engagement. & people wonder why there are no more morals instilled in “our” children…

  3. Who cares about while he’s married? They were separated anyway. People date when they legally separated, pending divorce. Congratulations to Swizz and Alicia!

  4. What a couple of dicks! Well, if it doesn’t start out right, it won’t ever be right. God isn’t a fan of adultery so how they think a marriage is gonna work after starting their relationship out the ass backwards way is beyond me. Good luck, jabronies.

  5. anzee…legally, Mashonda could’ve really cleaned out Swizzy if she could’ve proven that he was screwing around before the divorce was finalized. However, Swizzy and Alicia kept it a secret long enough to avoid any real problems.
