"Nine Years Of Amazing Fun Times"

Happy Birthday, Egypt Dean! Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz celebrated their oldest son’s ninth birthday on Monday.


For his special day, the celebrity parents chartered a yacht and invited some close family and friends along for the trip . Egypt definitely appeared ready to celebrate as he danced to the music playing in the background in one video clip recorded by his dad. “Keep that same energy King,” Swizz wrote to his son on Egypt’s special day. “Happy nine years of amazing fun times,” the celebrity dad added.

Alicia Keys also wrote a sweet note to her son. “My beautiful boy,” the celebrity mom began her note. “Thank you for teaching me how to be:

More imaginative
More tender
More understanding
Less opinionated
More open
More gentle
More considerate
Less in a rush
More contemplative
More aware
More intelligent
To help teach you truth
More fun
More silly
More clear
More awake
More myself so you can be more of who you are meant to be.”

Alicia ended her birthday message by telling her son, “I’m so proud of you! I hope you never stop being everything you are and becoming more of who you are meant to be.”

It was just a few days ago that fans saw an up-close, personal, and very raw Alicia Keys tell the co-hosts of Red Table Talk that her kids helped her realize and appreciate the magical times in life. “They’ve taught me to appreciate the vibe, appreciate the magic and to know when it’s not there,” the celebrity mom said.

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz have two kids together. Stay tuned for more celebrity family news!
