Singer Alicia Keys and producer husband Swizz "Kaseem Dean" Beatz welcomed baby boy on 14 October in New York City.

The happy parents, who were married in a private ceremony in the Mediterranean this July, joyfully embraced their first child together, son Egypt Daoud Dean.

Of his happiness, Beatz, 29, took to social networking by tweeting: "I'm so thankful for everything I’ve been blessed with in my life."

While Keys is a new mum, Beatz has three other children from previous marriages.
