Proud mom and music superstar Alicia Keys shared a stunning photo of her sons on Instagram.
Alicia Keys shared an adorable photo on Instagram of her two sons Egypt and Genesis whom she shares with Swizz Beatz.
Even though the two boys have a 4-year difference their similarity is uncanny.
Alicia and Swizz, who have known each other since they were teens, were married in 2010 in South Africa
In the photo Alicia shared, Egypt and Genesis are cuddled up together on a couch, staring at the camera with identical soulful eyes.
The singer-composer captioned the snap:
"One of the best things about my Sunday is snuggling these two... "
What is most striking is the two brothers' striking resemblance to each other and their beautiful mother. Even though Egypt is 9 and Genesis is 5, the boys are as alike as twins.
Egypt has proved that he has inherited more than his famous mother's looks. He joined Alicia on stage at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards and revealed that he has impressive musical talent.
Alicia and Swizz, who have known each other since they were teens, were married in 2010 in South Africa in a traditional Zulu ceremony and welcomed Egypt in October of the same year.
Little Genesis was born in 2014 and is the couple's second child together. Swizz has an older son Kasseem, 13, whom he shares with ex-wife Mashonda Tifrere.
Alicia and Mashona are close friends, and co-parent Kasseem along with Swizz.
The former child prodigy is a devoted mom, who is fully involved in every aspect of her children's lives.
Alicia Keys came up against the fear of judgment in the most unexpected way. The Grammy-winning singer took her then 4-year-old Genesis with her to her manicurist.
Genesis asked the woman to give him rainbow nails
but then asked her to remove them because he was afraid of what people would think.
This prompted Alicia to share the story on Instagram, appealing to people to be more accepting of each other, and allowing others the freedom to express themselves.
