Alicia Keys has a Baby Boy. And yes, she gives him a weird celebrity name.

That kiss on the belly she received from Bono this week must have been good luck. The songstress gave birth yesterday at 1:52 AM to a 6lb 5 oz baby boy. This is the second baby for Alicia with her husband Swizz Beatz.

If you can believe it, it’s been four years since their first boy, Egypt was born and now he has a baby brother.


Let me preface my comment on the name being “weird”. A celebrity can name their baby anything they want because this kid is not going to be submitting a resume on Monster.com and praying that he gets called for an interview. To put it in perspective, Alicia Keys is worth an estimated $50 million and little do people know, Swizz is up there himself with an estimated $65 million. That basically means they can call their baby Kim Jong Un and he could still get a job at Sony.

So what did they name the baby? GENESIS ALI DEAN.

I guess that’s not too bad considering. The important thing is that mom and baby are healthy. Alicia posted on Instagram,

The joy of joy is joy!! It’s a boy!! We are so grateful!!#blessings!!????????????


For Swizz personally this makes baby number 5. He has a daughter with Jahna Sebastian, a son with Nicole Levy and another son with Mashonda. I wonder if Alicia will go again for a girl. I’m sure after 9 months of pregnancy that’s the last thing on her mind right now.

Congratulations to Alicia. What a way to bring in the New Year!
