ALICIA Keys is pregnant with her first child.
The US singer’s publicist confirmed the news today.
The 29-year-old Grammy Award winner and her fiance, producer/DJ/rapper Swizz Beatz, announced the news after weeks of speculation, CNN said.
The couple, who have been dating since 2008, are to wed in a private ceremony later this year.
Swizz Beatz, 31, whose real name is Kasseem Dean, has two sons from previous relationships.
The publicist did not say when the couple’s child was due.
Keys is touring the US in support of her latest album Element Freedom, which her fiance helped produce.
The Freedom Tour wraps up on June 4 and she will perform at the soccer World Cup on June 10 in South Africa.
