"Family Zone"

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz are enjoying Spring Break with their kids. The celebrities shared pictures from their getaway this past weekend.


“The biggest zone, family zone,” Swizz Beatz told his social media fans. “Deans Spring Break,” the celebrity father said. Swizz also shared pictures from the family’s private jet, which transported them to their getaway. “Stay in your zone,” Swizz captioned.

This year makes twelve years of marriage for Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys. It was just a few weeks ago that Alicia reflected on her successful union and shared what she believed to be the reason for such harmony.

“You definitely have to make sure that you’re connecting, communicating clearly, putting each other first, and making sure that each person feels special,” Keys told Entertainment Tonight (ET). “I think that’s an incredibly important part about our relationship and we’re able to do that, but it’s not hard to do that ’cause he’s my best friend,” the celebrity added.

“There’s nobody else I would rather be with,” Alicia said in reference to her husband. “There’s nobody else I would rather talk to or connect with or communicate with,” the ‘Girl On Fire’ singer continued. “He’s so smart, he’s so interesting.”

Alicia Keys entered show business as a singer. She has since expanded her brand to a beauty line as well as a graphic novel called Girl On Fire.

“[My kids] are loving this graphic novel,” Keys recently told the press. “They’re all about graphic novels right now,” the singer added. “Especially Egypt,” Alicia shared. “Egypt is 11, so he’s really into it and he can read everything himself. He goes in a little corner and just kind of gets lost in the books. So, he really loves it.”

Girl On Fire is the story of Lolo who finds her inner strength while learning new things about life. This Coming Of Age tale has a protagonist to which everyone, even those who are older, can relate.

“I think sometimes we put the word ‘girl’ in something and all of a sudden everyone thinks it can only be read by girls and that’s it,” Alicia Keys recently said of her Young Adult (YA) book. “That’s definitely not the case,” she continued. “This story about Lolo is really relatable.”
