It has been two years and four days since singer Alicia Keys gave birth to son Egypt Dean (October 14, 2010), and the R&B sensation is in great physical condition. Although celebrated as being someone who quickly bounced back into shape after giving birth to her son, Keys admits that weight loss was not an easy task. “Some people are just like…’I just eat steak and potatoes and bread and I’m fine,’ and I’m not that person. I have to really bust my a**,” said the singer. “[It was] a lot of very difficult, hard, painful work.”

Now, several pounds lighter, Alicia is reaping the benefits of her labor as she prepares to release her fifth studio album entitled Girl On Fire. “[The album is] kind of about the journey to becoming a girl on fire because when you’re becoming a girl on fire you’re going through everything. You’re going through vulnerabilities and insecurities…bouts of fear, and you’re unsure of things…Then, you start to find your way and your voice, and that’s what I was going through.”

Keys’ album is set to drop on November 27, 2012. It will be her first album since marrying producer Swizz Beatz and giving birth to their first child together.

  1. Happy Birthday! Egypt. He is the most adorable cute little boy and Alicia is a beautiful woman.

    She works her a** off with music, charities, producing, writing and being a great mother.

  2. My baby is 2 already!!! Happy birthday precious! His looks are changing but he is still so cute. Love his curly hair & hair color.

  3. Happy bday Egypt such a freakin cutie he’s another one I love to see! Sorry PlainMean, but Monica’s boys were the best dressed babies!

  4. Happy Birthday Egypt!!! He looks so cute

    Is that a snake around Kaseem’s neck?! My skin just crawled! I hate snakes lol

    • I recently held snakes (non-venomous, of course) and they were so cool and friendly with me. It was my first time ever holding a snake… and I held three different kinds.

    • Looks like you are the only one “glorifying” her. The rest of us are celebrating the little one, who actually represents the reason for this site! Egypt is adorable and I appreciate “watching” him grow. Please keep this cutie’s pics coming, BCK, even if it means showing mom! LOL

    • I don’t see how she’s the homewrecker, last time I checked he had a daughter when he was married so nobody calls her mother one so that’s just dumb to call Alicia Keys one

  5. I’m mad it was Egy’s birthday and he aint smiling in none of the pics smh anyways congrats baby!!! :D

    • I see Alicia’s genes more, but he looks like his father and siblings in the second photo of the collage photo with just him and Alicia. He has the cake on his face and he’s turned to the side.

  6. He’s a beautiful boy!

    I love his outfit and haircut. Those shoes are adorable!

    Nice to see him without the soother :P
