Proud mom Alicia Keys, is telling the world not to take for granted that precious moments they spend with their love ones, especially their family members.
The 40-year-old ‘Falling’ singer had said this on Thursday 8th April 2021, while posting a poolside photo of her sons and herself, which we suspect might have been from a recent family vacation. She had captioned the photo saying that she is not taking one second spent with her kids for granted, and how they will be so big one day, and she won’t be able to spent that time with them again.
The Proud mom Alicia Keys posting the photos showing her sons, 11-year-old Egypt and 6-year-old Genesis and herself all in a tight and warm cuddle inside the pool, captioned the photo saying:
“I’m here for all of this!!! One day they will be so big I won’t be able to hold them both at the same time. But 4 now, I’m not taking ONE SECOND for granted! Who are you not taking for granted? Tag em and let them KNOW. I love y’all exponentially,” she said.
Her post and her caption has not come as a surprise to many, and aside the coronavirus pandemic challenging the way we live and now cherish the little moments we share with our family, friends and loved ones, Alicia Keys has never been shy about talking about her life as a mother, especially just how important the role has been in her life.
Proud mon Alicia Keys is happily married to producer Swizz Beatz, and they tied the knot in July 2010. The two are blessed with two kids, Egypt and Genesis.
“Motherhood gave me a stronger sense of clarity,” the entertainer once gushed in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar. “I used to be less aware of how I wanted to spend my time and more influenced by other people. After I had my kids, I felt like I had found my North Star. I was less wasteful; I worked more effectively.” Alicia whose memoir was released in March 2020 has also revealed how she sometimes felt unsure upon tackling being a mother.
“What if I’m not cut out for motherhood? What if I fail at being responsible for a child — a life? What if I can’t do this?” she wrote in an excerpt from her book via Instagram.
“There’s probably not a person on earth who hasn’t asked those questions in some form, at some point in time. The fear of possible inadequacy is real. I felt determined to do for my child what I’d once struggled to do for myself: rid my life of all circumstances that no longer served me.” But when it comes down to it, she is of course all about motherhood.
“Of all of my jobs, parenting is my favorite. It teaches me so much about myself about capacity, patience and about consciousness. It’s the most beautiful and it is also the hardest,” she wrote in the post.
