Alicia Keys “can’t wait to become a mom.”
“No question. It’s the most beautiful gift in the world. Truly a gift from God. I have an amazing mother – she is a best friend to me. And I would like to be the same to my child,” says the expectant singer.
While she is happy to be expecting, the singer isn’t ruling out adoption.
“Adopting is definitely not out of the question. I would love to figure out the ways that could work for me. I felt I wanted to scoop up the children I met in Africa and take them home. At this point I kinda feel I have amazing brothers and sisters in Africa. Hopefully I can be their big sister who they know they can depend on and will always be there, fighting for them.”
Alicia’s charity Keep A Child Alive has helped 250,000 of Africa’s young people affected by Aids.
