Alicia Keys is pregnant! And engaged!

Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys Leave it to Alicia Keys to produce two hits in one beat. 

According to, Keys is pregnant! Wait. There’s more! She’s also engaged to rapper Swizz Beatz. Hmm … wonder if she’ll call both of them “My Boo.”

The couple, who have been together since 2008, are expected to wed in a private ceremony later this year, reps confirmed to the magazine. 

It will be Keys' first trip down the aisle — and their first child together. Swizz Beatz has two sons from previous relationships. 

In addition to Keys, Swizz Beatz (a.k.a. Kasseem Dean) has worked with artists such as Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Gwen Stefani. 

Keys is currently on her Freedom Tour in Europe. Pregnancy rumors began swirling when images of Keys rockin' a slight baby bump on stage began to surface. And the poofy white D&G dress she sported at the Keep a Child Alive Black Ball at London’s St. John’s, Smith Square, on Thursday didn’t help. 

Forget trying to sleep with a broken heart. Try sleeping with a pregnant belly. Good luck, Alicia!
