Alicia Keys is five months pregnant & wearing unfortunate shorts


Here are some photos of Alicia Keys performing on Good Morning America this morning. Man, those are some unfortunate shorts. And I like Alicia and everything, and I think she’s a pretty girl, but damn. Alicia needs to check out some of the other stylish fashions for pregnant ladies, because this is not working. Also – while on the show, she confirmed that she “right about” five months pregnant. Which means that when she confirmed it this time last month, she was four months pregnant. Hm.

Alicia Keys proudly showed off her baby bump Friday while performing on ABC’s Good Morning America.

She also revealed she is “right about” five months pregnant.

In May, confirmed that the singer, 29, is expecting and engaged to producer Swizz Beatz.

“They are very happy,” a pal told Us.

It’s the first child for the singer; Beatz, 31, is father to sons Kaseem Jr. and Prince, both from prior relationships.

“[Alicia] is with the man who has inspired so much of her music and her album [The Element of Freedom],” another friend told Us of Beatz.

[From Us Weekly]

Also, when Alicia and Swizz went to South Africa so Alicia could perform at the opening ceremony of the World Cup, they got their baby blessed in a traditional Zulu ceremony.

In other posts I’ve joked about how Alicia is a “homewrecker” for maybe/probably interfering with Swizz Beatz’s marriage to his now ex-wife Mashonda, but most of the time I just feel like we don’t really know what happened between Swizz and Mashonda or Swizz and Alicia. However, I would be interested in knowing Mashonda’s views on this baby, and I’m kind of surprised she hasn’t given an interview about it. Maybe she’s already put this mess behind her. If that’s the case, good for her.

    Five months!!!! Wow she is carrying pretty small then. The outfit is not really flattering.

    I could never look at Alicia the same ever since she wrecked a home. I thought she was better than that.

  2. Q says:

    Seriously? those shorts would be unfortunate even if she wasn’t 5 months pregnant. As it is, they’re just inexcusable. I mean, they don’t look comfortable, and imagine the fuss to get that thing off to pee!!!

  3. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Those bracelets are ridiculous!

  4. bite me says:

    what exactly did she wreck… mashonda needs to put the blame on her man and release that her son is about to have ANOTHER half borther/sister and alicia is wearing a romper

  5. lisa says:

    I think that is a jumper..not shorts..
    I consider shorts a a separate item of clothing. That looks like a jumper.. short/top combination..LOL

    don’t like it no matter what it is.. She is very pretty to me.

  6. Cletus says:

    AK is a beautiful woman, but she looks like she has shit her pants, which is, to my knowledge, always a fashion DON’T. The way that jumper/onesie is cut it makes it look like she got a load in there.

  7. lucy2 says:

    She’s very pretty, but the shorts are bad.
    I have a feeling this won’t end well for her – from earlier stories it sounds like he got involved with her while still married. Whether she knew or not I don’t know, but she’s now planning to marry and have a baby with a guy who cheated on his previous wife and child.

  8. Cinderella says:

    Not a good look.

  9. fee says:

    Just because the baby will wear onesies doesn’t mean mommy has to.

  10. hanh says:

    It looks like she’s wearing a diaper.

  11. gg says:

    What is more unfortunate is how most of these guys seem to wind up with six or seven children all from different mothers, mostly out of wedlock, mostly while cheating with somebody else. How long before everybody is related and can’t reproduce without birth defects?

  12. gabs says:

    I cant forget the fact that she stole another womans husband. Homewrecker. Very talented and beautiful but still a homewrecker

  13. Kaiser says:

    LMAO @ Cletus: “but she looks like she has shit her pants, which is, to my knowledge, always a fashion DON’T.”

    You guys are cracking me up today!

  14. Maritza says:

    She is beautiful, pregnancy suits her. She really doesn’t look 5 months pregnant. I’ve seen her wearing worse, this by far isn’t.

  15. buckley says:

    Not a fan of her look. She looks rough to me, a la Jada Pinkett.
    And for some reason I always thought she was gay.
    oh well…what do I know…

  16. denise says:

    @ Bite me

    What did she wreck? You do know Mashonda and Swiss Cheese were married and just had a baby right?
    And yes he is to blame too, of course, but the fact is that they were still very much married. Alicia knew this, she should have had the decency to wait till the divorce was finalized before she swooped in and took him. Singing about a woman’s worth and she did’nt once stop to think of his wife’s feelings. Hypocrite. But she also does have a song called Karma right…….

  17. Alexa says:

    Alisha Keys is so awesomely talented, and I appreciate her real, raw (non-techno) sound. It is so refreshing to hear that kind of music on the radio these days. As a devoted fan, my wish for her is that her private life becomes private.

  18. denise says:

    LOL @ CLetus’s remark.

  19. Alexa says:

    But if things didn’t work out with Swizz Beats – how awesome would it be if she paired up with Lenny Kravitz!? That’d be one hot-looking couple . . . and some GREAT MUSIC if they also collaborated in the studio!!

  20. sdca says:

    swiss b.=golddigger.
    it’s painfully obvious-she is right in the category with leann rimes and tori spelling now….sad, but true.

  21. ,,,, says:

    She may very well be part of a “homewrecking” duo for Swizz has plenty of fault in this too BUT with that said, PEOPLE cannot be “stolen” unless we are referring to an abduction.

    Such a phrase puts all the blame on the terrible Eve of a woman and makes the man seem like poor innocent Adam who thought he was allowed to eat the fruit. Both people are to blame and he was obviously a willing participant.

    Sorry, pet peeve of mine.

  22. bite me says:

    mashonda and swizz where seperated, their divorce took two years to finalize… sorry but some woman can be vindicative, i guess mashonda got her karma since she “stole” swizz from a previous girlfriend the mother of his first child

  23. Lisa says:

    Maybe bad but atleast she has a bra and panties on and ain’t wearing a leotard on stage!!!! Unlike some other celebs out there!!!!

  24. Kazoo81 says:

    her hair looks the best it’s ever looked. very nice.

    she always wears ugly, ill-fitting clothes. pregnancy isn’t going to change that, unfortunately.

  25. Annie says:

    Girlfriend stole my jumper from 1978!!! BEEOTCH! GIVE IT BACK. Oh wait, on second thought…you go on and keep it.

  26. denise says:

    @ Biteme
    Even if they were seperated, they were still very much married. Maybe there could have been a reconciliation, maybe not. It was still tasteless of her to come into the picture. And I don’t know anything about how Mashonda “obtained” Swiss Miss, but I guess karma is real, so Alicia is not exempt from that. But even more surprising to me was to find out that she was not gay.

  27. Kazoo81 says:

    meh, if you’re legally separated i don’t think it’s the same as being married. sometimes divorces take a long time to be finalized, especially if one party is purposely holding up the process.

  28. Hautie says:

    “swiss b.=golddigger.

    it’s painfully obvious-she is right in the category with leann rimes and tori spelling now….sad, but true.”

    Oddly enough I thought the same thing to.

    That he made the decision to marry up.

    Why is it men can have the motive to dump a wife with no means, to marry a wealthy one.

    Yet the new wife is always the homewrecker?

    This man wrecked his own home. And most likely telling all kinds of lies to Alicia in the process.

    Now lets hope if she is stupid enough to marry him, she will get that iron clad pre-nup singed first.

  29. bellaluna says:

    Fashion don’t:

    #1) A jumper;
    #2) Shorts ending in an unfortunate spot on the thighs;
    #3) A very unnecessary – not to mention very unflattering – belt.

    And please, please, PLEASE stop throwing all the blame for breaking up a marriage/relationship on the “OTHER woman” involved. It makes the man sound like an innocent victim, and it is so very, VERY tired. The only truly “innocent victims” involved in the break-up of ANY relationship are the children.

    And the only “innocent” man I know is my one-year-old baby boy, who isn’t a man yet. By the time he becomes one, he won’t be innocent anymore.

  30. teehee says:

    “unfortunate shorts” <– :D

  31. Kazoo81 says:

    swizz has been a music producer for a long time. he has his own money. however, he does seem to enjoy the recognition & fame that comes from being with alicia.

    i give their relationship 2 years, tops.

  32. Jeri says:

    Maybe Alicia wanted to kill the bad press & made Mashonda an offer she could not refuse.

    Makes just as much sense as any other story out there.

    Yeah, Alicia needs a dresser.

  33. Kim says:

    Wasn’t Swiss with his baby mama when he hooked up with Mashonda, what goes around…

  34. TeeTee says:

    Alicia betta be ready for HER pay back, now that she decides she is into men AGAIN..she just had to have someone that was NOT free.

    I’ll never listen to her music again.

    good luck

    chicks like Alicia and Gabby will get theirs..

  35. fashionfreak says:

    yes, the bottom of that romper is quite dreadful. while i appreciate her keeping with the trends despite her size, she could’ve found something more flattering.

    Not sure if yall reported on this or not, but you might’ve heard about her going to africa to get her baby and her pregnancy blessed…..interesting, but i guess when your baby is the product of an affair you need to do whatever you can to get back on fate’s good side, though i would think SHE’s the one that needs to get blessed…

  36. Leticia says:

    @Denise, I agree with you. And for the women who can’t sympathize with the first wife, makes me think that they have been on the “other woman” side of things.

  37. toosexy says:


    Alicia and swiss carried on an affair for almost 2 or 3 years..while he was married.. I remember years back when mediatakeout. caught alicia wit swiss or the mystery man long time ago.she was sneaking around wit this man while he was married and now she pregnant she a whore.. and yes of course the man is at fault but a woman should be more herself and her fellow sister. point blank..slut..on her song unthinkable she sound like a mistress waiting for him to tell his wife..REMEMBER HE DIDNT’ TELL MASHONDA SHE HAD TO CONFRONT HIM AND ALSO THEY WERE HAVING PROBLEMS BECAUSE WE WOMEN CAUSE PROBLEMS WHEN WE FEEL THERE IS SUM GOING WRONG..AND SHE WAS RIGHT!

  38. toosexy says:

    ALSO what person is ready to come out of a marriage have a baby and remarry…that marriage will never work..she is crazy and niever to think IT’S ALL GOOD FOR HER!

  39. denise says:

    @ Leticia

    Yeah I feel you on that one. Maybe this is one of those things only a wife could understand. If I were in her shoes, I’d feel really hurt and betrayed. I would think any woman could sympathize with that. (esp. when there are children involved)
    What makes it so irritating to me is that Alicia is one of those girls that came off as a “sister” who empowers other women, than she goes and does something so cold and callus to another. I can’t support that. She is a lie in a pretty package.

  40. bite me says:

    sorry, but am not going to sympathize with a grown ass woman that saw the writings on halls and decided to stay in a toxic situation because they wanted to maintain a particular lifestyle

  41. RobN says:

    Why do so many women think it’s a good idea to have a kid with a guy who’s making a career out of impregnating women and then walking away? Never quite gonna get that.

  42. denise says:

    @ Toosexy

    Wow You just blew the lid off the pot. I knew it was wrong, but I had no idea how far back it went. Well, a homewrecker is a dime -a -dozen and so is a no good man.

    @ RobN

    So true, so true. We as women always think we can change a man, yea keep dreaming on that one.

  43. JJ says:

    what comes around goes around . . . she’ll get hers.

  44. toosexy says:


  45. denise says:

    Have a lovely weekend everyone.

  46. a says:

    don’t folks use condoms anymore? this swizz guy, mel, tiger, jesse james… ugh.

  47. Feebee says:

    @ fee – freaky… similar name (or the same if you are also actually Fiona) and exactly my thought! A onesie… which she didn’t need to wear.

    I was thinking as I read the headline, I bet it’s not as bad as all that, then the photo. In this case yes it is.

  48. Nibbi says:

    i’m all alone here, but i think the romper is cute. sort of refreshing not to see another pregnant woman in a damn babydoll dress, cute as they are.

  49. I think she looks absolutely amazing and I didn’t even know she was pregnant until now. I love her! Beautiful!

  50. Danielle says:

    Most women wait until they’re past the 4 month mark especially if they have a history of miscarriage in order to tell anyone. Remember Lily Allen?

  51. me says:

    homewrecker. all her songs get a thumbs DOWN on pandora.

  52. Dhavy says:

    Married/separated whatever you want to call it,it’s both parties fault. Yes, people fall in and out of love but I think out of respect to whatever type of relationship you might have with another one, why not officially end it so there are no name calling and everyone walks away with self-respect

    I was surprised and disappointed in her

  53. Isa says:

    I call it a romper. I tried one on the other day and came to the conclusion that only people the size of Nicole Richie should be allowed to wear them. Jk.

  54. fee says:

    Feebee: Kinda neat to have a similar nickname, but it is actually Felicia for me. :D

  55. Nerion says:

    She is a homewrecker. Point blank period. She can go right with Tiger Woods and Jesse James. Home wrecker.

  56. Johnthing says:

    What kind of name is Swizz? It it short for Swizzel stick?

  57. sheda says:

    @sdca: & hautie .

    swiss cheese might have and unfortunate face and yes she did wreck the marriage
    but his azz is wealthy and does not need her money;
    a.keys love the music but how u got him is how u lose him

  58. Liana says:

    it takes two to wreck a home. Neither the man, nor the “other woman” is solely responsible – they BOTH are. Have some decorum and wait until the marriage is over. If it’s deep all encompassing love, wouldn’t it still be there AFTER the legal separation or divorce?

  59. Green Is Good says:

    Swizz, get a vasectomy. STOP fertilizing women, and then DUMPING THEM for the next available piece of tail that comes along.

  60. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    She looks like Jillian Michaels in that first picture.

  61. John Boo says:

    What makes her shorts unfortunate? She looks like most of us, so in many ways she should be fortunate to look like us.

  62. Aspie says:

    She looks beautiful as always and is very talented. I think her outfit looks cute.

  63. Missfit says:

    I don’t know, just looking at her now makes me mad and him too, cause like people said, it does take two, so it’s not all her fault, but his too. If when she got with him, he was already a player or whatever, she should have known better to not take him seriously and to not proceed, so the family wouldn’t get hurt. There’s a limit, a wall, a line you do NOT cross, and that’s the time you put your foot down and say, hell no. Now she’s all pg and all (la la la) like if they didn’t do anything wrong and as if it was a good thing? But whatever, babies are a blessing from God, so I hope the baby doesn’t suffer from their faults. And I most definately agree with Denise on her comment 16 about Alicia’s morals on a “Woman’s Worth” and now what, she went the opposite direction.

  64. honey bee says:

    She probably have baby girls, so small and rounded!

  65. malachais says:

    No one knows exactly what happened between Swizz’s marriage OR how Alicia and Swizz’s relationship began. I think the idea that someone ‘stole’ someone’s husband is asbolutely ridiculous. A man or woman will leave their family/wife if they really aren’t happy and have found something they think is better/makes them temporarily happy. I’m not saying its okay to do that, but isn’t the “other woman” doing that wife/family a favor? If my husband left me for a another woman, good for him. Its wrong to leave someone unexpectedly but at least the victim of the situation is able to see their partner’s true character. I would rather have my husband leave me if he is really not happy than live a lie and pretend things are fine.

    I honestly don’t think that Alicia and Swizz were having an affair.. She is an intelligent, smart woman and I highly doubt she would put herself in that position. If his marriage was not in a good place and things were already falling apart, it doesn’t surprise me that he decided to part ways if he found a connection with another woman. That is pretty natural reaction to this type of situation especially if both partners are not committed to working things out.

    People are so judgmental without really knowing the facts, and I agree with the old saying, ‘What goes around comes around,’ but I don’t think there was an affair in this case.

    I hope that they really care for each other and work things out, although having a baby so early in a relationship is a HUGE step that can often make relationships short lived. I wish nothing but the best for Alicia and I hope they can really work things out for this child.

    I have mixed feelings regarding Mashonda’s twitter rant. I don’t really know why she felt the need to publicly confront Alicia, especially if she had already done this privately. I’m not sure what she expected, Alicia is an extremely private singer that didn’t even talk about your long-term relationship prior to Swizz. Knowing that, I honestly think she was doing that to get attention and make Alicia look bad.

    In all, this is nothing new, these types of situations happen everyday with individuals that are not in the public spotlight. No one will ever know what really happened unless they are in the accuser’s shoes…

  66. Michelle says:

    Unfortunate shorts…lmao. Jumpshorts like that should only be worn by skinny people. She is beautiful but she needs fashion help. As for her relationship drama she must know KARMA is a bitch. She really is a fraud with all her woman power music. Wonder who the next Swizz baby mama will be?

  67. nnn says:

    “what goes around comes around.” Is it related to Mashonda who wrecked Swizz and his previous woman ‘s couple ? Because if it is lol.

    Actually, nobody knows what has happened. Not even the three of them knows every details about the other one, what goes really in their mind. Love is tricky. So it’s arrogant to pose a judgment on something as intimate as feelings and how to behave in between according the rythm and the state of a personal situation, in a personal daily history we are not part of.

    We don’t know s*”t about their bedroom affairs, how the speak to each other daily, how they relate to each other, if they fought, didn’t go to bed together for months, ect…

    It’s their PERSONAL business and when it comes to feelings, it’s absolutely intimate and personal. Not even your own family has a say in your couple’s personal business, how you manage it or on how and who you should love.

    My problem is, i despise to the core women who whine after a man, any man. That’s probably due to my education, but my own father used to tell me that i was worth it and that no man was worth whining and crying over.

    You can’t force someone to love you or to not stop loving you. Just get up, get some pride and move one with grace. Love yourself first and find someone who is keen to love you back in the same proportion AS LONG AS HE COULD cuase there is no guarantee to keep on loving someone, not even on your case.

    Whining after peices of love to grab at any cost is so pittiful and shows a lack of self love.

    You deserve better, if you whine after a man that left you, (hence he didn’t love you anymore ENOUGH to stay in the same place as you and is dreaming and wants someone else at his side), then, i am sorry but you are a loser with a capital L. That is not love, it’s pitty with a capital P.

    Forcing someone to stay with you inspite of his/her own feelings, out of pitty will just makes him/her bitter and angry and even hateful at some point. Sorry again but men (or women) are not dogs. They are human beings with feelings that could change with time. You can lock a dog and give him love and he will stay but not a human being who doesn’t love you anymore and wants to go to someone else s/he feels makes him/her more happy and in par with his/her feelings. It’s his/her life, his/hers journey and his/her feelings that are at stake.

    Women who like to indulge themselves in a self pitty fest about a man, women who want that instead of freeing themselves, giving themselves a chance for real love have no sympathy from my part.

  68. cassandra says:

    I think she looks great! She looks pretty and most apros for a hot summer day. Congats Alicia!!

  69. Mia says:

    Her baby daddy sounds like a real loser. And why does someone this successful have such a thing as a baby daddy?

    It would be nice if such a successful person would get her life in order before bringing a child into this. Never, ever breed with someone in their 20′s or 30′s who has kids with two other people already. How can you ever, ever avoid a life of drama? She signed up for this on purpose. Why?

    Even X-tina got that right. X-tina! If she can everyone can.

    Alicia, you’re not as wise as your lyrics at all. Sorry, but I won’t be listening to any love, and self love songs from her again anytime soon. She doesn’t know what the hell she’s doing, so why should I listen to her wail on about it.

  70. Larissa says:

    I am not going to throw the word homewrecker around, I just think Alicia could´ve done much better!

    And as far as not knowing what really happened, What I can honestly say is that being left/cheated with another woman (no matter how great or bad your relationship was) can be very hurtful and people shouldn´t judge a woman´s feelings and pain neither.

  71. Blanche says:

    Ain’t gonna judge, cuz Lord knows I ain’t perfect, but if I met a guy with two brats from two different baby mamas I would RUN, not walk, in the other direction.
    As far as her onesie is concerned, um…it’s from hunger…jus sayin’.
    I do lurve her music.

  72. debra parker says:

    awwwwwwwwwwwwww u look so pretty
