New mother, Alicia Keys recently discussed her charitable efforts with WebMD. Although the focus of the interview was Keys’ mission to raise awareness and funding for children with AIDS, the singer did not hesitate to talk about her son and husband when asked questions pertaining to them.

The overall motherhood experience.

“Motherhood is a billion times better than I expected, and I already expected it to be great. It’s all the things everyone ever said, but you don’t know it until you’re there. It’s a really special time, and I feel so honored that I get to help somebody in this world find his wings, and navigate and learn happiness, and be loved. Actually, he’s helping me learn, because I’m smarter now. He’s awesome! I’m having a ball!”

Maintaining balance between family and work.

“I feel like I’m more balanced than I’ve been in my life, actually. I felt a lot less balanced about five years ago. More than ever, I consider everything I do now, and make sure it’s something I can’t live without and something I believe in. There has to be a powerful reason to do it, one that makes me feel great. There are a lot of things I can’t do now. Having my son and a family, that’s my barometer, when before I was maybe more inclined to say ‘yes’ and do more — and then be super-exhausted and overspent.”

  1. Alicia is an expectional loving person. She cares deeply about children and women who are effected by A.I.D.S. She loves her son and family and has learned to balance her career.

    I applaud Alicia and to me she is a superwoman.

  2. I love Alicia but of course motherhood would be alot easier for someone who clearly has no issues struggling with finances to raise their child like the average woman and mother.Im just saying.xx

  3. AK love her to death such a fan thanks PlainMean for taking it easy on my girl! Motherhood looks good on her I wish her the best!

  4. I felt the same way, it has its stressful moments, but motherhood is not as hectic as I thought it would be (i have two biological and two step children), in fact, its alot of fun. but hey i’m an only child so…

  5. Love AK, but her hubby – not so much. I always thought I saw some chemistry between AK and Usher in the “My Boo” video. Always hoped they would get together – maybe one day.

  6. I love AK & do not blame her for Swizz actions. She gets an eyebrow raised & side eye for choosing tomarry & have children with him, but hey..I haven’t made the best choices in men myself.

    Here’s your chance PlainMean. ;) But don’t come too hard. :)
