Bossip: Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz are having a boy, plan on calling him “Egypt”


There are few things more beautiful than when Bossip goes after Alicia Keys. Bossip has been one of the few sites to keep up with every little movement of the Alicia Keys/Swizz/multiple-baby-mama-drama situation, and it is always so epic. Even the headline of this most recent piece had me laughing my ass off, with the reference to “Cleopatra Keys and Swami Beatz”. You see, Swizz has been stepping out in a formal turban, of all things. And Alicia won’t stop with the forehead jewelry.

Anyway, Bossip’s sources are talking about the newest little member-to-be of the Beatz clan. Quite a clan, too – this baby with Alicia will be Swizz’s fourth baby, and Alicia is his third baby-mama. Bossip’s exclusive report claims that Alicia and Swizz are expecting a boy, and that they’re going to name him Egypt. Oh, goodness.

We’ve been ragging on Alicia “From Homewrecker To Housewife” Keys and Swizz “Philandering Father Of Four” Beatz about their noticeable nod to Egypt and even further east in their clothing as of late — including Alicia’s Indian Tikka she’s been wearing to everything lately and Swizzy’s turban. It seems the couple’s international obsession will continue with their new baby’s name! Keep reading to find out the planned name, and sex of their royal progeny!

According to BOSSIP sources the couple is having a ….

It’ll be another boy for Swizz — his third and Alicia’s first. Swizz also has a daughter. And our source says the couple plans to call the child Egypt!

[From Bossip]

Yeah – Swizz has two boys with Mashonda, and a little girl with Jahna Sebastian, over in England. As for the name… um… Egypt? Really?!? Egypt Beatz? No, that’s not his real name. His real name is Kasseem Dean, so the baby would be Egypt Dean. LMAO. It sounds like a dish Paula Deen would cook up! Egypt Deen, with butter.

In other news, Swizz is joinging watchmaker Audemars Piguet in designing a line of watches for their next collection. According to reports, Swizz recently flew to Switzerland to meet with executives and designers, and Swizz told media outlets: “I went out to Geneva and met with Mr. Audemars himself. They’re designing the next 10 years of AP (Audemars Piguet) and they want me to be on the board and design team. It (the class) was six hours and it was crazy dissecting and putting together the movement in the AP, which I have a total new respect for. Not just wearing it, but the tailor movement in that thing.” You know what this means, right? It means Swizz knocked up some poor Swiss girl. There will be a little Swiss Swizz!

    Hmmm….Egypt Dean: Deep-Fried Koushari?
    Gebna Makleyah N’ Grits? Khoshaf with a side of sweet potato donuts?
    The possibilities for this dish are endless…

  2. kimmm says:

    They’re the new “it” couple to make me gag .

  3. Kaboom says:

    They should call him Evil. He could then play in college movies in 50 years and get the credits “Evil Dean – Himself”.

  4. Praise St. Angie! says:

    I always have to laugh when someone wears a hairpiece that doesn’t match the color of their real hair.

    fail, Alicia.

    and I’ll say it again.


  5. jen says:

    Egypt Beatz?! LOL. It sounds like some lame DJ.

  6. TQB says:

    Swiss Swizz… oh Kaiser, I am dying.

  7. whatever says:

    I would think “Adultery” is a bit more fitting for the boys name.

  8. DelBocaVista says:

    This guy is just so repulsive in every conceivable way. And Alicia looks just delighted that her association with him is destroying her likeability.

    Man he is hard to look at, like on a “Bill Maher” level of ugly.

  9. bored says:

    Perhaps they should call him the freakishly feminine names you people are giving your boys these days. At least Egypt can tell “Jayden” and “Cayden” the school bullies to go paint their toenails. Sad thing is, they probably would.

  10. eja102 says:

    well. I do think being named after a country/continent is “cool”
    I also like that kid’s name, Ireland.
    but egypt, no.

  11. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Alicia Keys is not a whore. There is also nothing wrong with the name Egypt if they so choose to name their child that. I know plenty of people named Egypt. There are people named Paris, London, and China usually spelled with a y instead of an i. I find it hard to believe Alicia would just openly cheat with a married man. I am pretty sure there is more to this story than what his bitter ex has to say.

  12. Moreaces says:

    By the time the baby is 2, he will be off to the next woman, to impreganate and leave

  13. Courtney says:

    Please plenty of names can be used for a boy or a girl Eygpt is one of them so are Ashley Courtney & Joey. right for example one of Scarlett’s suiters in Gone With The Wind is named Ashley there’s actor Courtney B Vance and Joey of course is a common nickname for Joanna or Joanne as in the daughter in the movie Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner is named Joanna but called Joey and of course in real life there’s academy award winning actress Joanne Woodward who has been called Joey by friends and family since she was a child. it’s there choice to name their child that so get over it.

  14. Stephanie says:

    I’m wondering why he is a style icon…? Designing watches? What???

  15. Iggles says:

    I find it hard to believe Alicia would just openly cheat with a married man. I am pretty sure there is more to this story than what his bitter ex has to say.

    Believe it. This is the same woman who flew to London with her “man” to accompany him as he took a paternity test for his baby girl. The one that was conceived when he was boning both his ex and Alicia.

    Suffice to say Alicia is not the “good girl” her PR team and music lyrics would have us believe…

  16. Liana says:

    By the time the baby is 2, he will be off to the next woman, to impreganate and leave

    The baby or Swiss Miss?

  17. RHONYC says:

    the citizens of egypt, who i’m sure don’t know from alicia keys…could give a flying f*ck.


  18. Maya says:


    hmmmm, no. I think she is just a skanky whore who cheated with a married man because she wanted to believe she was way more special than his wife. Oldest story in history, and she’s going to be crying when he drops her big mommy ass too.

    A homewrecker is a homewrecker. Period.

  19. PsychicEyes says:

    I give these two nine months before he’s caught cheating. She’s such an idiot for breeding and marrying him. She could have done much, much better.

  20. Brooke says:

    MoROCKo sounds wayyyy cooler :)

  21. Victoria says:

    I say by the time that child turns 3 (a generous estimate) he (very ugly man) will be out of the picture. He will be GONE, off to the next woman. Bye Bye

  22. Just a Poster says:

    So this hobag is jumping on the ‘lets ruin this poor child with a stoopid name’ train eh?

  23. Tia C says:

    @ PsychicEyes: Could not agree more – you are spot on.

    @ Victoria: You’re right, 3 years is a VERY generous estimate.

    I’d say the duration of this marriage will be months, not years. He has a migratory dick, and no doubt it will be migrating soon. Adding a crying baby to the mix will only hasten the process.

    Oh, and that is a dumb name.

  24. heavenasia says:

    Alicia Keys is a smart and intelligent woman. I doubt that she is anything that the media is playing her out to be. There’s 2 sides to a story and we haven’t head her side yet so don’t be so quick to jump to conclusions people.

    She travelled alone to Egypt for a holiday, so maybe the place has meaning and significance in her life.

    I have to add to your list of names Love Angelina:
    Asia, India, America, Sydney.. thats all I can think of but at least Egypt doesn’t sound pretentious.

  25. BReed says:

    Why in the WORLD would the prestige AP watch company want any hands-on from this joker? As for the name Egypt….well, if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.
    I actually feel very,very sorry for Ms Keyes. Being a single Mother is quite a lot of work, even if you can afford help. I have a feeling the father won’t be around long. The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. Enough said.

  26. girl x says:

    I really hope the record stops skipping for Swizz, but I don’t think it will. He’ll be “on to the next one” before this baby is out of pampers… His name should be Leech Beatz…

  27. Rio says:

    I guess Daddy must be into place-names, given he calls himself “Swizz” (which I am GUESSING is a bastardized version of “Swiss”…)
    I can’t tell if Swiss Beats, incidentally, sounds like the best or worst music ever made. On the one hand, the Swiss aren’t really known for rockin’ out. On the other hand…
    Electric alphorn, people. Electric alphorn.

  28. Confuzzle says:

    :lol: :lol:

    these two so deserve each other.

  29. Ken says:

    Bangladesh would be a better name for the soon to be little Swizz cheese.

  30. chasingadalia says:

    This is why you should never tell anyone what you’re naming your baby until *after* it’s born.

    @Whatever: Hey, it’s not the kiddo’s fault his mum is a skankmaster.

  31. bubbles says:

    thank God they are having a boy. imagine a baby girl taking after her egg-headed, beak-nosed, droopy-eyed, skeletal dead beat dad.

  32. tired of rumers says:

    @bored hah! egypt isn’t the greatest name, but “cayden” is a million times worse. it might even be less manly than “skyler,” if that’s possible.

  33. Titan says:

    The class probably took 6 hours because they had to describe every micro step using stick figurines and large colourful pictures.

  34. Naye in VA says:

    @ Kaiser

    I could have sworn the eldest child was his from a previous relationship. one that occured while he was dating his first wife. I think he has 4 different babys mothers. i could be wrong

  35. afan says:

    Are you two really serious about naming your child(a boy)EGYPT come on are you serious. That child will have so many problems later on in life being a boy name EGYPT. This is a big fail, it’s your child but hate the name.

  36. DetRiotgirl says:

    @Tia C The phrase “migratory dick” just pretty much made my life complete. Lmao, thank you for that one!

  37. RHONYC says:

    ***********spy vs. spy************

    that’s all i have to say about that. :-(

  38. Moore says:

    The name Egypt is nothing new. I don’t think it goes with the last names but it’s not my kid. With a child involved, I only hope the situation improves and isn’t really as sad as I think it is.

  39. NiRa says:

    It’s called a “mangtika”. The indian jewellery i mean :)

  40. mikaila says:

    She’s actually his fourth baby mama. Mashonda is the mother of only one of his children.

  41. flourpot says:

    “Alicia Keys is a smart and intelligent woman…”

    No, she’s not. She’s pregnant and married to a man who has multiple children with multiple women and cheated on the last one to be with her. That’s horny. Not smart.

  42. Bruce says:

    I thought Mashonda only had one son by him. The oldest is supposedly what caused a problem in the marriage. Mashonda wanted him to choose.

  43. Amneh says:

    lol lol LOL @ Kitten! I wasn’t expecting an Egyptian accent when I read the comments!

  44. Cletus says:

    Egypt is kind of dumb. I’D go with Khemet, which is what the Egyptians called Egypt. It sounds cooler and smarter.

    Of course, I wouldn’t have no babies with a migrating dick, so what do I know?

  45. Tia C says:

    @ DetRiotgirl: heehee…welcome!

  46. Courtney says:

    you can’t help who you fall in love with. are you suggesting Alicia should’ve aborted their son just because he was conceived while his daddy was still married to another woman. so wasn’t the child Joanne Woodward miscarried during her and Paul Newman’s honeymoon granted that pregnancy was the last straw that made Paul’s first wife finally agree on the terms of their divorce which was finalized the day before he and Joanne were married in Las Vegas. Alicia better be careful she doesn’t end up pregnant again a few months after Eygpt is born which is quite likely because your more fertitle after a birth/loss. for example Joanne conceived her & Paul’s oldest daughter Eleanore Teresa about 5 months after the miscarriage

  47. Victoria says:

    @Courtney: Who said anything about abortion?

  48. Relli says:

    ok no one has said it so I will:

    I think Egypt is a fitting name since Alicia is the queen of de nile!

  49. Lori says:

    Why does the press report Leann as a homewrecker and not Alicia? She seems to get a free pass. This story makes her seem like as much or more of an idiot than Leann.

  50. bubbles says:

    @courtney Girrl. whatcha smokin?

  51. betty says:

    why do celebrities name their kids weird names….they make me sick! i bet that kid will hate his parents for naming him Egypt.

    but since Swizz Beatz real name is Arabic, i guess he must be from Egypt.

  52. It looks like Amerie is switching up her style in her latest track called Outside Your Body. Ameriie’s returning to her Korean roots in her single, melding rhythm & blues with Korean pop. This intergalactic song sounds amazing on my phone and I can’t wait for the video to drop.
