Alicia Keys, her husband, Swizz Beatz, and his ex-wife, Mashonda Tifrere, came together to celebrate their sons, Kasseem Dean Jr., and Egypt Dean's graduations.
On Friday, American music producer Swizz Beatz delightfully shared pictures of his sons, Kasseem Dean Jr., 14, and 10-year-old Egypt Dean's graduations.
Swizz Beatz shared multiple pictures from the graduation ceremony. The first snap showed his ex-wife, Mashonda Tifrere, with whom he shares Kasseem, posing with their son and his wife, Alicia Keys.

Another photo showed Egypt inside a car. He wore a black suit jacket over a white turtleneck top and smiled as he posed. The next snap showed him posing with his mom and dad.
In another photo, Egypt posed with his older brothers, Kasseem and Note Marcato. Another cute snap showed Kasseem in the car, while yet another heartwarming photo showed Egypt and Note Marcato bonding.
Keys posed with Kasseem and Note Mercato in another photo, while the last picture in the post showed handsome-looking Egypt in a black suit, which he paired with a white shirt and black bow tie.
Swizz Beatz also commended his wife and ex-wife, crediting them for being the ultimate glue holding their blended family together.
In the post's caption, Swizz Beatz congratulated his sons on their respective graduations and expressed pride in their achievements. He also urged them to keep going strong.
The pictures in the post showed how strong Swizz Beatz's blended family is and the love they have for each other. The music producer joined his wife and ex-wife in a 2018 interview with ABC's Michael Strahan to talk about co-parenting their kids together.
Keys said she and Tifrere love each other and hang out on different occasions. She also said her partnership with Tifrere is beautiful and special, and she is proud of it.
Keys, who sang the song "Blended Family" in 2016 as a tribute to her blended family, said families like that and co-parenting with exes is a real thing and is possible.
Tifrere also wrote the book "Blend: The Secret to Co-Parenting and Creating a Balanced Family" in which Keys wrote the book's foreword and Swizz Beatz wrote one of its chapters.
In an article in Parents Magazine, Tifrere said a deeper connection, giving children power over certain situations, and giving them the time to reset and be alone for a while were key to co-parenting productively.
Tifrere also told People that her harmony with Keys and Swizz Beatz is down to many years of hard work. Swizz Beatz also commended his wife and ex-wife, crediting them for being the ultimate glue holding their blended family together.
