Tongues were wagging over this (above) photo of Alicia Keys at the 2011 Keep a Child Alive Black Ball where her rapper/producer/beatmaker husband Swizz Beatz‘s hand was seen laying on her tummy. Real moms know that it takes quite some time for that belly to go back to its previous tight washboard shape (ha!) and to expect a bulge for a while after giving birth.
Keys told the New York Post, “Not in the next year. I definitely see myself having another child, but not in the next year. I’m going to have to go on tour first.”
Keys and Beatz had their first child, a son named Egypt, together last October. Beatz has two sons Nasir, 11, Kassem Jr., 5, and a daughter, Nicole, 3, from previous relationships.
I guess with Beyonce and Jessica Simpson choosing to announce their pregnancy with a nonverbal gesture of cupping their belly, people are now using that as cues that a star wants to tell us something! Hillarity!
