Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz are in celebration mode. The celebrity couple’s oldest son, Egypt Dean, commemorated his eleventh birthday on Thursday (Oct. 14).
“Happy Ultra 11th Birthday to Egypt,” Swizz Beatz wrote online in honor of his son’s special day. “Keep going, son. Don’t stop or let anything or anyone stop you,” the celebrity father advised his little one. “You’re truly a joy and light to this family and this world son.”
Alicia Keys also took to Instagram to commemorate Egypt’s birthday. The award-winning recording artist shared a snippet of her son playing the piano to celebrate his incredible musical abilities. “Our baby was born at 9:51 pm on this powerful day,” Alicia shared with her Instagram fans on Thursday.
“Ever since that day, he has been leaving us in awe with his talent, his heart, his funny ass personality, and his fearlessness,” Keys said of her son. “Happy born day to our baby Egypt!! Can’t wait to see all the amazing things you create in the world! You are ADORED beyond measure.”
Egypt Dean has already given the world a taste of his gift as a musician. Alicia Keys shared the stage with her son at the 2019 iHeart Music Awards, which was an emotional experience she will never forget.
“I’m not the crying type, I’m really not,” Alicia Keys shared during a recent interview with PEOPLE (The TV Show!). “[But] you get so sensitive just [thinking] about how life goes on, and seeing him next to me and remembering that moment. That moment was the first time that he performed with me on stage, and I remember being completely so wrapped up in him being okay because I asked him to do it.”
Egypt did a wonderful job performing alongside his mom at the 2019 iHeart Music Awards. Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz have two kids in all.
