Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys are in love! Over the weekend, the married couple took to Instagram to celebrate their 12th wedding anniversary with heartfelt tributes and a trip down memory lane.
“This is the day we got married! Look at these cutie pies!! Those same stars are still in our eyes. And it’s only getting better,” Keys happily captioned black-and-white photos from their wedding ceremony. “When we said our vows we wanted our love to never be about controlling each other, or being the boss of each other. We set each other free. We love each other with open arms, and an open heart. We love each other just the way we are and we grow together even in our different ways and directions.”
The proud wife and singer added, “We are best friends. We’re so transparent and connected to each other. We laugh hard and we love hard and we cherish each other. I can’t believe it my love! 12 years!! Of pure love! There’s no love more precious then this! Theres NOTHING more precious than this! I wake up looking forward to you everyday! Forever more.”
Swizz also took to Instagram to mark the happy occasion. “Today 12yrs ago I married my best friend. Every sec has been filled with love and adventures. The best part is we didn’t even start yet. Love you 4 life Queen. Happy Anniversary,” the producer captioned a carousel of images that highlighted their union.
FYI: In July 2010, the Deans tied the knot with a lovely outdoor ceremony in Corsica. At the time, Alicia was seven months pregnant with her eldest son Egypt.
