Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz (legal name: Kaseem Dean), her husband of four years, certainly know how to celebrate their fourth anniversary in a big way! The pair, who wed in 2010, announced today that they are expecting their second child together. They welcomed their first child, son Egypt, mere months after their romantic destination wedding in the Mediterranean.
"Happy Anniversary to the love of my life @therealswizzz !!" Keys wrote on Instagram, where she shared a photo that highlights her growing baby bump. "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!"
The photo, seen above, shows Keys in a floor-length white dress as she beams happily at Dean, and captures their palpable affection. But the anniversary love didn't stop there — the cheerful husband and fifth-time dad (Dean has three children from previous relationships) shared his own grateful message, too!
"Love is life & life is love and we're so excited for another GIFT from up above," Dean wrote on his Instagram account. "Happy Anniversary my Goddess 4 years of greatness & cheers to 100 plus more inshallah @aliciakeys."

Though the traditional fourth anniversary gift is fruit or flowers, we think both husband and wife will be pleased with this slightly less traditional gift instead.
In February, the "Girl on Fire" singer opened up to Marie Claire UK about her initial feelings towards Dean. "Honestly, I didn't really like him that much," Keys said at the time. "I thought he was too ostentatious. I used to see him and think, 'He is so annoying.'"
But since then, the Grammy-winner has warmed up considerably towards her music producer main man. "He's taught me to live more fully, and I think I've taught him to live more deeply."
Double congratulations to the happy couple and parents! This will surely be an anniversary they remember for years to come.
