Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz
Swizz Beatz, whose given name is Kasseem Dean, and the piano-playing Grammy winner Alicia Keys got married in 2010 in Corsica, France, while Alicia was pregnant with their first child. Deepak Chopra officiated the small ceremony and famous friends, including Queen Latifah and Bono, came out to support the couple. Alicia gave birth to their baby boy, Egypt, just three months later. The couple had a second baby boy, Genesis, in 2014, and the whole family is sweet as can be.

Things were rocky between Swizz and his ex-wife singer Mashonda but they smoothened them out. And all three of them have become what has been popularized as a Blended Family. Alicia even has a song with the same title.

Before the couple got together, the two artists joined forces on “Waiting for Your Love,” an international bonus track from As I Am. Swizz also produced “Teenage Love Affair (Remix),” an LL Cool J-featured lost cut from that same album.
