Alicia Keys Reveals Due Date For Second Child On 'The View' While Promoting Her 'We Are Here' Campaign; 'Girl On Fire' Singer Says Motherhood Has Given Her 'Fierceness'
Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz will welcome their second child at the end of December!
The 33-year-old R&B singer revealed the due date for her second child during an appearance on "The View" Monday, Sept. 29.
The Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan-born 15-time Grammy-winning recording artist announced that she is pregnant with her second child via Instagram on July 30 - the date of her and Swizz Beatz's fourth wedding anniversary.
"Happy Anniversary to the love of my life @therealswizzz !!," Keys wrote on the image-sharing site at the time. "And to make it even sweeter we've been blessed with another angel on the way!! You make me happier than I have ever known! Here's to many many more years of the best parts of life!"
Keys' sweet message came with a charming photo of the couple that shows her dressed up like a Greek goddess as she stands next to the 35-year-old hip hop singer and record producer while cradling her baby bump with a huge smile on her face.
The two are already proud parents to son Egypt Daoud Dean, now three years old.
When asked by O'Donnell if being a mother inspired her to start the "We Are Here" movement, Keys answered: "Being a mother has definitely given me more of a fierceness and an understanding of just what I believe in, that much more."
"We Are Here" campaign supports various charity initiatives and encourages its endorsers to speak out via social media. According to the campaign website, its mission is to "create the change we all want to see in the world."
To raise awareness for the campaign, Keys recently posed naked with a peace sign painted on her belly.
She explained on "The View" that the portrait was symbolism, because she dreams of a "peaceful world for our children."
Keys also previously opened up about the campaign during a two-day Social Good Summit in New York City.
"As I prepare to give birth to my new child, I can't help but think what world I'm bringing the baby into," she said in her speech at time, according to E! News. "We see the state of the world today and we can all feel the frustration and the desire to do something to make it better."
"We all want to do something but oftentimes we don't feel empowered. That is why I created 'We Are Here.' Because it's not about me. It's about we," she continued. "I felt that if we could gather a group of really powerful organizations, how many people would want to come out and say 'I believe in that,' or 'That's important to me?' People want to be awakened. So we are here to manifest and empower our community."
