Alicia Keys recently opened up about expanding her family, how Jay-Z reacted when her son kissed his daughter and the tattoo her husband got of her likeness.
Keys, a 32-year-old singer-songwriter, recently appeared on "The Wendy Williams Show" where she spoke in depth about her family life. The entertainer revealed that her husband and popular music producer Kareem "Swizz Beatz" Dean tattooed her face on his arm.
"This might sound strange but I think the favorite gift he ever got me [was] he got a tattoo of me on his arm," Keys revealed to talk show host Wendy Williams. "Of my face. He hid it. It's so beautiful. He mixed it with some of his favorite artists … It's so pretty."
Although the pair has been married for close to three years, Keys revealed that she was not always enamored by her husband.
"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,'" Keys recalled to Williams.
"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," she continued. "He's actually kind of a little too ostentatious 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."
The couple has a 2-year-old son named Egypt who Keys said took a liking to fellow musicians Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles' 1-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter at a recent NBA All-Star game.
"I think Egypt kissed Blue and I don't think Jay liked it very much," Keys told Williams. "He told my husband, 'Um, watch your son.'"
While some have speculated about Keys' possibly being pregnant recently, the singer insists that she wants to wait for a few years before expanding her family.
"I definitely want more kids. I would like to wait at least two years," Keys told Williams. "I'm going on tour, I'm very excited."
