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.
Alicia and Swizz party it up in New York City.
Did you know Alicia and Swizz actually first met as teenagers? Alicia Keys has told Marie Claire U.K that they were initially introduced by a mutual friend, who thought they’d make a great connection as up and coming artists.
Despite the fact that Ms. Keys initially found the producer “annoying” at first, they eventually hit the studio together where she says they “had a ball.”
Alicia and Swizz tied the knot in 2009 and announced their pregnancy in 2010. The mama-to-be looked absolutely radiant as they hit the red carpet at the Keep A Child Alive’s 7th annual Black Ball.
