“We’re so excited for our Lil boys bday today!! Thank u for all of your beautiful birthday wishes!!” – mama Alicia on her son’s second birthday.

“I’m so thankful for everything I been blessed with in my life wowwwwww!” – papa Swizz Beatz on the birth of his fourth child.

“Motherhood is a billion times better than I expected, and I already expected it to be great. It’s all the things everyone ever said, but you don’t know it until you’re there. It’s a really special time, and I feel so honored that I get to help somebody in this world find his wings, and navigate and learn happiness, and be loved. Actually, he’s helping me learn, because I’m smarter now.” – Alicia on motherhood.

“My son, Egypt, makes me super giddy, especially when he laughs. His laugh makes me laugh like a maniac! He’s going to be a man in this world. It’s a beautiful blessing that I get to help raise a man. And I want to show him as much as possible.” Alicia on her little man.

“It was a time of transition. There were certain people [I was working with] who weren’t right. I had friends who weren’t right anymore. I was tired and I had overworked myself and burnt myself out. So I went to Egypt by myself. When I saw what was built there, it made me understand how powerful we are, that we can create anything. And I felt like I needed to create things that were timeless too.” – Alicia on the reasoning behind her son’s name.
