(AllHipHop News) Alicia Keys recently explained how her role as a wife and mother taught her how to practice better self-care.
The singer discussed her blended family with producer Swizz Beatz, 40, in an upcoming interview with Essence magazine.
"Becoming a wife and a mother, specifically a mother, really taught me so much," Alicia explained. "I remember clearly wanting to remove the negative energy around me quickly, and prior to that, I didn’t feel so drawn to do that for myself. But doing it for this new soul made sense to me."
Alicia and Swizz, real name Kasseem Dean, share sons Egypt, eight, and Genesis, four. Beatz is also father to 12-year-old son Kasseem Dean, Jr. with ex-wife Mashonda Tifrere.
