Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz Get Unborn Baby Blessed In South Africa

Proud parents to be Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz were recent y in South Africa, where Alicia sang at the World Cup opening ceremony. Whilst there, the loved pair had their unborn child blessed in a traditional Zulu ceremony while visiting the city of Durban.

Description via Daily Mail:

Wearing tribal beads, Alicia and her baby were given Zulu names while standing under a fig tree known as the ‘healing tree’ by locals who believe it brings good fortune and health. ‘Two female priests who practice a mix of Christianity and tribal custom chose new names for her and the unborn child, as a mark of respect. The names were kept between them, but were chosen to reflect Alicia’s character.

‘Alicia had to do a special dance with drums banging in the background, and was embraced by abused children who she has helped. She was chosen for the ceremony as a thank-you, because she has done a lot to keep children’s lives afloat and for us to afford our support staff.

‘Her partner came too – he held her hand and helped her sit down when she needed rest.

Aw that sounds so sweet, these two really do make a perfect match. Alicia is currently five months pregnant and plans to wed her producer boyfriend later this year.
