Alicia Keys will soon be graduating from homewrecker to housewife:
Grammy-winning artist Alicia Keys and record producer Swizz Beatz will tie the knot this summer— before their bundle of joy enters the world.
“They’re planning a celebration in Europe very soon,” an insider reveals to Life & Style. “It will be a star-studded celebration,” with Jay-Z and Beyoncé among the celebrity guests. In fact, Alicia, who is five months pregnant, has already settled on a dress for the big day. “She’s decided on a Vera Wang gown and has been eyeing Christian Louboutin shoes,” a second insider tells Life & Style.
What are loved ones saying about the pending union? “They make a great couple,” a close friend tells Life & Style. “They’re perfect for each other.” As for the mama and bride-to-be: “I love children and I love family,” she says. Congrats to the happy couple!
Good for them. Alicia talks about loving children and motherhood:
‘I love children and I love family and I love that interaction. Because I had a really close relationship with my mother I understand that deep powerful love, and it’s so beautiful. To be a mother to a child is the most brilliant gift, it’s gorgeous. I’m definitely in a place where I have a different sensibility about things.’
I remember how I used to be: “I’m going on the road and I’m back when I’m back and I’m probably gone a long time.” I felt that that’s what I needed to do and nothing could stop me. There was no amount of love – no amount of anything – that could drag me down. That was then. And now there is a desire in me to have more stability.’
