Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz (Kasseem Dean) have the type of love it takes to make it last forever. Today marks the music couple’s ninth wedding anniversary, and we must say, love looks good on them.
The Grammy-Award winning singer wished her producer hubby a happy anniversary today on Twitter, revealing that their love is stronger today than ever before. “I swear I have never been more in love with you! You are EVERYTHING.” she writes. “I am SO blessed by your love Happy anniversary my king I’m so in awe of the power of love.”
Swizz returned the love with a throwback photo from when they first started dating. “Thank you for the best 9yrs of my life,” he writes. “I’ve never met a human like you. Happy Anniversary Mrs. Alicia Dean, my Love 4 life.”
While gracing the cover of ESSENCE June 2019 issue, Keys credited her blended family with helping her better understand and value herself. “Man, becoming a wife and a mother, specifically a mother, really taught me so much,” Keys told us. “I remember clearly wanting to remove the negative energy around me quickly, and prior to that, I didn’t feel so drawn to do that for myself. But doing it for this new soul made sense to me.”
What we love most about The Deans is their willingness to compromise and continuously hold each other down. Take a scroll through the gallery of their love over the years as we help them ring in 9 years of love.
