The last time we checked in on Alicia Keys, she was name-dropping Oprah is a way to deflect some uncomfortable questions about homewrecking her fiancée Swizz Beatz from his wife Mashonda. Now, the latest news: Alicia doesn’t want to have her baby out of wedlock. By my estimation, Alicia Keys is just about six months pregnant, with Swizz’s baby. And Life & Style claims that Alicia and Swizz plan some summer shotgun-flavored nuptials to make everything alright. So Alicia is going to be hauling her largely pregnant self down the aisle very, very soon.

Here comes the…bump! Life & Style can reveal that Grammy-winning artist Alicia Keys and record producer Swizz Beatz will tie the knot this summer— before their bundle of joy enters the world.

“They’re planning a celebration in Europe very soon,” an insider reveals to Life & Style.

“It will be a star-studded celebration,” with Jay-Z and Beyoncé among the celebrity guests. In fact, Alicia, who is five months pregnant, has already settled on a dress for the big day.

“She’s decided on a Vera Wang gown and has been eyeing Christian Louboutin shoes,” a second insider tells Life & Style.

What are loved ones saying about the pending union?

“They make a great couple,” a close friend tells Life & Style. “They’re perfect for each other.”

As for the mama and bride-to-be: “I love children and I love family,” she says. Congrats to the happy couple!

[From Life & Style]

Yes, congratulations to them if they actually go through with it, and I hope they’ll be very happy together, I really do. But I do worry about Alicia – I think she fell in love HARD with a man who had a complicated marriage, and now that some time has passed, Alicia is trying to make sure they’re this perfect little family. She’s starting to remind me of LeAnn Rimes a little. Like, Alicia is close to doing a photo op with Swizz and Mashonda’s kids. She seems like she’s forcing it, I guess I’m saying. But Swizz seems into it, so God bless.

    wonder if swizz all three baby mamas will be this wedding…low esteem is motherf****r…
    and i read somewhere yesterday that beak nose is going to be managing her career :(

  2. bellaluna says:

    Well, we saw how well that worked out for Cristina Milian and The-Nightmare.

    A man who has a weird name and children with another woman/women? Check.

    Already pregnant? Check.

    Shotgun wedding? Check.

    What follows? A baby, a divorce, and maybe an affair or two in the mix.

  3. Iggles says:

    bellaluna – Yup!!

    I don’t get why she’s dying to marry a cheater who already has three kids with three different women! Thought she was better than that. So dysfunctional..

  4. hanh says:

    Yeah she has some obvious insecurities there. She’s delusional to think he’ll treat her any different from his previous wives/girlfriends.

    I predict this won’t last long as he won’t be able to keep it in his pants. I see lots of affairs and another baby momma to break up this marriage.

  5. Sasha says:

    Swiss Cheese must have some kind of magic d*ck to make these bitches act a FOOL…idiots

  6. Maddie says:

    Both obviously do not respect the vows of marriage so why bother to get married in the first place.

    The first signs of boredom in the marriage, they will be connecting with someone else

  7. a says:

    man that’s a smug looking couple!

  8. Ogechi says:

    I was proud of her when I met her in South Africa during the World Cup. She looks so beautiful in real life than on pixs.

  9. hellen says:

    Honey, if he cheated WITH YOU, he will cheat ON YOU.

  10. Iggles says:

    hellen – Right on. She won’t be looking so smug once he leaves her for someone else. She thinks with her fame it won’t happen to her..

  11. Tia C says:

    Wow, I would not want to spawn with THAT. He is FUG-LEE! Hope the poor kid does not get his nose. You all are right, it’s only a matter of time before he cheats on her and gets someone else knocked up. She’s living in la-la-land if she thinks anything other than a variation of that scenario will happen.

  12. lrm says:

    She is SO into him…
    And he is SO into….having his picture taken. LOL

    It’s so obvious that it’s painful to watch….
    now he may manage her career?
    so he’ll get notoriety, fame and alot of money out of this deal.

  13. Gail says:

    She said, “I love children and I love family”. Then why did she help bust up a family and take a father away from his children?

    I get that people fall in love and they can’t help that. What you can help is how you go handle it. If a marriage is rocky then you get the hell out of the way so that the people involved have a chance to either work it out or let it dissolve on its own.

    I like her a lot, but this was kind of low class.

  14. buckley says:

    Unfortunate genes to pass on…

  15. Sam says:

    it’s a little late to try to do the respectable thing; the horse has already left the barn (as my grammy says). plus, i think the issue is she got knocked up prior to marriage. it may be a small distinction, but rushing to the altar won’t make the situation seem less cruddy. anyhow, best of luck to them and their child. if it’s true swizz really cheated on mashonda with alicia, girlfriend will definitley need all the good luck she can get beause how you get him is how you lose him (anther pearl of wisdom from my gramy).

  16. Ashley says:

    What, 3 children by 3 different women? I thought he only had the one woman?

    Damn, she is an idiot. And she’s going to let him manage her career? AHAHAHA She’s so uppity and such a snob it will be funny to see her knocked down a few pegs when this crashes and BURNS. AHAHAHAHA

  17. Niecy says:

    she’s forcing it so much cuz bitch is gay! think about it…she was never really out and open and doing all this PDA with her other beard before she got all famous and shit so she could get women and no one would care. Now she’s a household name and she’s gotta kick it up a notch. *poof* insta-family to fight the gay rumors.

    I’m not judging her by saying she’s gay. I’m bisexual so I love my fellow rainbow peeps. I’m judging her cuz she’s foul lol.

  18. Skeptical at Best says:

    I think Alicia might be BM #3 with kid #3. BM “#2″ and kid “#2″ was while he was with Mashonda. BTW the side chick and Mashonda were pregnant at the same time, but the stress got to her and she miscarried. So technically the side chick was BM #1. Then Mashonda and Swizz had a baby together a few years later. Making his wife officially BM #2 with kid #2.

    I don’t know about anyone else, but that is not the kind of track record I would feel comfortable with in a mate and/or the father of my child.

  19. madam ex says:

    I didnt know he had 3 different 3 kids by 3 different women either…wow Alicia, I thought you were a much smarter woman that that, Im kinda disappointed, still love albums 1 & 2….but damn girl, once a cheater,its very hard for that CHEETAH to change his spots.

  20. anon says:

    @Skeptical at Best: does he have 2 children with Mashonda then? since the technical BM #1 lost her baby and Mashonda was pregnant at the same time? confusing a bit? :-) so this is the 2nd time he got another woman pregnant while with Mashonda?

  21. denise says:

    Alicia is going to give birth to a nose.
    That thing is huge!

  22. j. ferber says:

    He has a 9 year old son with a woman he never married. I believe (I may be wrong) that he was with this woman when Mashonda became his “protege” at 16. Mashonda has a 3 year old son with him and now Alicia will have his 3rd child. So he’s always left one woman because of an affair with another. Alicia is making a grave mistake.

  23. Isabella says:

    Beware of the butt ugly men with too much arrogance and self-esteem, those are the worst. Unfortunately for Alicia Keys, like Christina Milian before her, she got knocked-up by one.

  24. Raven says:

    What do you call a male gold digger?

  25. Tazina says:

    This is not going to go well. His past tells it all. If she’s smart she will not marry him but I’m thinking she must be in some kind of denial. I assume she has more money? If so an iron clad pre-nup needs to be set up.

  26. Keira says:

    Swizz Beatz has THREE children already:
    9-year old son with his previous girlfriend
    3-year old son with Mashonda
    2-year old daughter with Russian singer who lives in London
    Alicia will make baby momma #4 and have his FOURTH child
    This is a known fact

  27. Ogechi says:

    @denise: You can’t be serious….hahaha

  28. coucou says:

    I try and a i try to hate, but i just can’t. I’m not a big fan of either of them, but i think he is just adorable, i never noticed his nose, because his eyes took all my attention. Those eyes! She has beautiful eyes, too.

    So he’s had women and children in his past, i’m sure none of them could hold a candle to AK…she is a true artist, and a true beauty. I know they will do the best they can to do what’s right regarding all the family baggage.

    When you look into their eyes, you can see a lot of soul there. They are not perfect, who the hell is? And so they made a lot of mistakes, but i don’t think they did it all unconsciously, you can see that they are trying to move forward and learn. They’re still young, still growing.

    I wish them the best.

  29. Gigohead says:

    I second that “Good Luck with That!” sentiment. I don’t think this is a smart move on her part. I think that this guy is a Poppa was a rolling stone, anywhere he put his hat, he called it his home.

    LOL! Seriously. This guy has to grow up.

  30. AllegraFox says:

    She better ensure the big nose dude signs a pre-nup…before she starts making phone calls like Mel Gibson… This will not last. She has an affair with a married man, who had a pregnant wife at home. The shit is bad Karma…He is unattractive and his BEATS aint that good anyway. Good luck to her…Another beauty woman with a great voice, chooses the wrong man…

  31. Angelina says:

    My gaydar goes off the charts when I see her!

  32. The Devil's (tm) Personal Assistant says:

    He has a face – and a nose – like Ringo Starr’s (not my favorite look).

    Other than that, meh. I can’t bring myself to care, it’s such an old story.

    Live and learn, Alicia.

    Just make sure you do have a pre-nup – and don’t get married in a community-property state!

  33. kibu says:

    alicia keys is marrying the vlasic pickle stork!?!

  34. anon says:

    I tried to check (I was curious)I saw a picture of him (Beatz) with his 2 son’s,9 and 3; the 2 year old is not listed and they say he is a good dad (caption of the photo)

  35. DiMi says:

    They remind me of Brangelina, only worse because Beatz wife had children.

    Like Brad, Swiss Beatz is marrying up. As long as Angelina and Alicia remain at the top of their industries, their relationships are safe.

    In both cases, when a younger star eclipses them, they will be in danger of having their man cheat on them.

  36. Music says:

    How is Swizz a gold digger? He has had super hit songs he made for other artists since the mid 90′s when I was barely 12. Dude is far from poor. I remember him, and his son on “Cribs” his house was over 15 million dollars, and he had his private helicoptor to go to other parts of the home. That was years before Alicia. I think his networth alone has to be 100 million or more, because he has been/is one of the BIGGEST music producers in the hip/hop world for over 10 years.

    That isnt somebody that is a gold digger. He just must want her for her looks, and possibly he loves her for her inner beauty, and for Alicia she may have been gay, but hey Swizz might be packing and made her want a man, even a married one.

    He does have a big nose but I have sex with him, before I have sex with Joe Camel. Aka Jay-Z who is just butt ugly!

  37. Magician says:

    Once a cheater, always a cheater. Alicia is making a BIG mistake, especially with a baby on the way :(

  38. Yes I agree Once they cheat they will always do it sadly :-(
