Celebaby: Alicia Keys - we SOOO knew it!
In Tuesday's edition of celebaby we mentioned that speculation was rife and the whispers of 'is Alicia Keys pregnant or not?' so loud that a noise abatement order was imminent!
Well whisper, gossip, ruminate and speculate no more because THE announcement was finally made yesterday along with the revelation that Ms Keys is also engaged to her boyfriend, rapper 'Swizz Beats' (his real name is Kasseem Dean...no, I haven't heard of him either).
The announcement was made after the two of them attended a charity evening Black Ball event in London for Alicia's Keep a Child Alive charity which...
"provides with your help, first class AIDS care and support, care for orphans, food with a healthy dose of love and respect to the Mothers, Fathers, Brothers, Sisters, Aunts, Uncles, Sons, Daughters, Husbands, Wives, Friends, Neighbors, and Lovers affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India."
...a very worthy cause I'm sure you'll agree.
Alicia and Swizz (or must we call him Kasseem?) have been together since Autumn 2008 and friends say, "They're very happy," well you'd hope so wouldn't you otherwise what on earth are they doing?! Official spokespeople have confirmed that the wedding will take place, "in a private ceremony later this year."
I'm glad; I've said it before and I'll say it again, whilst I like to see the odd snap shot of a celeb' wedding or baby here and there, I really do have much more respect for those who keep the ins and outs of their private lives to themselves and let us mere mortals just have a sneaky peak now and again.
I can't think of any instances where Alicia Keys has ever been anything other than dignified, utterly fantastic and a positive role model.
Three cheers for her and three cheers for her exciting baby news!
