Alicia Keys Welcomes Second Son and Gives Him Biblical Name

The Short of It

Singer Alicia Keys and her husband Swizz Beatz became second time parents over the holiday weekend, welcoming a second son. Not surprisingly, the celebrity couple gave him a unique name, with biblical roots.

The Lowdown

Keys announced her little one's birth on Instagram with this message: "The joy of joy is joy!! It's a boy!! we are so grateful!! #blessings!"

The Grammy winner also shared her son's name in an accompanying photo: Genesis Ali Dean.

What, did you expect her to name him John?

Genesis joins big brother Egypt, age 4. It seems names with biblical roots are becoming a trend for Alicia Keys. Perhaps her next child will be named Exodus or Deuteronomy? Just a suggestion...

We know a few details about baby Genesis besides his moniker. The tot was born on Saturday, Dec. 27 at 1:52 a.m. and weighed just 6 pounds, 5 ounces.

We can also infer from Keys' social media post that she is over the moon about her new addition!

The Upshot

I'd say Keys capped off 2014 in the best way possible. I can only imagine how grateful she will feel when the clock strikes midnight on New Year's Eve and she looks over at her beautiful new family-of-four—because we know she'll be up with newborn Genesis!

Congratulations to all of them.
