By Sanetra Richards

Baby number two is on the way! According to, Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz are expecting their second bundle of joy. The singer announced the news to fans via Instagram on Thursday, July 31st. In the photo recognizing their fourth anniversary, the 33-year-old award winning musician and her music producer husband are smiling from ear-to-ear as he grasps her growing belly. “Happy Anniversary to the love of my life @therealswizzz!!” the “No One” singer wrote. “And to make it even sweeter we’ve been blessed with another angel on the way!! You make me happier than I have ever known! Here’s to many many more years of the best parts of life!” A few years ago, Keys had no interest in her [now] honey: “Honestly, I didn’t really like him that much,” she said to Marie Claire UK last year. “I thought he was too ostentatious.” After a few projects together, Keys grew smitten and realized she was wrong about him. “I think we’ve taught each other a lot. He’s taught me to live more fully, and I think I’ve taught him to live more deeply.”

How do you know when to announce your pregnancy?

Cupid’s Advice:

You just found out you have a bun in the oven, and you are having a hard time hiding the morning sickness, loss of appetite, and mood swings. On top all of that, you do not know when to share the big, exciting news. Should you wait? Should you announce right away? Cupid is here to give you a few tips on when exactly to tell everyone:

1. The first trimester is over: Many women choose to postpone sharing their pregnancy news until after the first trimester. Why? Because they can finally keep their food down long enough during conversation to spill the beans. Also, the percentage of miscarrying is significantly lower after the beginning three months. If you are one to want a steady support system throughout your pregnancy, maybe tell a few loved ones (in the case of the good and bad).

2. It’s a ____!: Are you all for surprises? The best way to decide on when it is time to make the announcement is when the baby’s gender is revealed. Not only is it one shocker, but the gender is indeed the cherry on top. You can also share photos of the tiny human’s ultrasound.

3. The arrival: Some moms actually choose to wait until after the baby’s birth to make the announcement. If you are a private person, this idea may work best for you. Your chances of being asked nearly a million and one questions or having others prying are slim to none.
