Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz sparked rumors that they were expecting another child together when the celebrity couple turned up on the red carpet of a charity event this weekend. Keys was wearing a loose-fitting, sparkly top and Swizz was seen posing for photos with his hand resting near her stomach. But asked whether or not she was expecting a new child, the Grammy-winning singer quickly put an end to the speculation.
"Not in the next year. I definitely see myself having another child, but not in the next year. I’m going to have to go on tour first,” she told the New York Post.
Keys and Swizzy recently celebrated the first birthday of their son and only child together, Egypt. Keys said that the youngster had been blessed with an excess amount of gifts.
"His birthday came [last month] and there are like a hundred, billion, trillion thousand gifts," she said. "That can’t happen for Christmas. I need to figure this out now because he’s not going to be this terror 5-year-old child [shouting], ‘Give me!’"
Perhaps Keys will decide to give some of the gifts away to one of her many charities. The multi-talented mom has been active with various charities recently, including the Western Union-backed World of Betters campaign and her own Keep A Child Alive foundation.
