Alicia Keys has been officially off the market for 2 years, and it’s finally settling in that she’s a mother to an adorable little son!

The “Girl On Fire” singer recently sat down with Wendy Williams, where she dished on how she met husband Swizz Beatz, his tattoo of her on his arm, and how her little boy Egypt is the light of her life.

DETAILS: WORD? Jay-Z Didn’t Like Alicia Keys’ What?!….

She also revealed what happened when Egypt kissed Jay-Z and Beyonce‘s daughter Blue Ivy Carter!

Check out some snippets below:

Her favorite gift from Swizz:

This might sound strange but I think the favorite gift he ever got me [was] he got a tattoo of me on his arm. Of my face. He hid it. It’s so beautiful. He mixed it with some of his favorite artists…It’s so pretty.

On Egypt kissing Blue Ivy:

“I think Egypt kissed Blue and I don’t think Jay liked it very much. He told my husband, “Um, watch your son.”

On how she and Swizz first met as teenagers & she later fell in love: 

It was totally different because we met when I was 16 and he was 17. A friend of ours that went to his high school was like, “Oh you gotta meet Swizz, and Alicia’s about to blow up and Swizz is doing his thing and maybe one day you’ll work together.” And that was how we met.[…]I think that what it was, what happened with us, it was so crazy. We’ve known each other so long, been friends for so long and been in the same industry for so long, but never thought it was like that. He’s actually kind of a little too ostentacious for my taste. He will wear not one but 16 chains, and he [won’t drive] a regular car, it’s the most craziest car. I think what happened was, he really got me when I saw how far his mind went. He’s really, really intelligent and knows so many interesting things.[…]He knew all this stuff I had no idea about.

I think that he loves to live life and he really showed me how to live life in a beautiful way.

On whether or not she wants more kids: 

I definitely want more kids. I would like to wait at least two years. I’m going on tour, I’m very excited. The first date is March 7 with Miguel. Love Miguel. I do actually want more children and sometimes I think it does feel like, “Oh man, what if I could just spend every waking minute with Egypt.” Of course I would love to. I have slowed down in that way. [I’ve] learned to really cherish those small moments and not rush so much everywhere.

Favorite thing to do with Swizz when they’re alone (can’t say sex): 

I don’t want it to be anything else!

Current favorite pop star: 

I get confused with all these titles. I don’t even know what it means half the time. So who I like, my favorite, I really like Kendrick Lamar and I really like Frank Ocean.

It sounds like Alicia and Swizz are really running a great household and raising Egypt to be a fine young man!
