Alicia Keys is engaged and ‘expecting’

It seems Alicia Keys will be inspired to write and sing more love songs this year. The Grammy-award winning artist is reported to be pregnant and plans to marry her long-time beau Swiss Beatz.

Keys is just fresh from her release of her new album “The Element of Freedom,” and is currently rocking the stages in Europe for her tour.

Beatz and Keys have been going steady since 2008. Beatz, a music producer and rapper, has two children from a previous relationship with singer Mashonda.

According to MTV News,a representative for the couple has said that the two “are expecting a baby and are engaged to be married in a private ceremony later this year.”
