Alicia Keys Is Mommy Blogging

"I can spend HOURS looking at one little EAR! Have u ever noticed how complex just an ear is? A tiny maze of art. It may sound silly but it's so true. Or a heartbeat? Everyday we wake up and in some way, take for granted the fact that this beautiful pulsating organ in our body is the reason, and yet now that's all I can think of… And breath; invisible as it may be, how necessary!"
Alicia Keys, who gave birth to her first child, Egypt, two weeks ago, wrote about her feelings on her website.

One would hope those hours of ear-admiring are interrupted by bouts of feeding and diaper-changing.

There's a nanny for that.

i was all prepared to not give her shit because, really, staring at tiny humans that are 50% your genetic material is a pretty amazing and mesmerizing experience, but then i read what she named the damn thing.

I can spend HOURS looking at the smelly lump of what looks like Lamb Saag in my son's diaper.

You named your son Bangalore, didn't you, LL?

No, Fulham Broadway. I went with a 'London Tube Stations' theme for my kids. His sister is called Piccadilly Circus but we just call her Dilly for short.

I went with Boston suburbs, so my daughter is Wellesley Lynnfield. Never hurts to be aspirational.

Awww, how sweet! Now throw that baby in a peapod costume and march him over to Uncle Choire's for some trick or treatin.

I like the name. I hope it starts a trend of naming children after random African countries. "Puntland! Central African Republic! Get over here!"

With a husband named Swizz Beatz it could have been far worse.

Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zzaire)?

These are the twins, South Africa and North Africa.

I was Hoping she'd go with the hyphenated pseudonym, Alicia Beatz-Keys, which my girlfriend and I thought was just hilarious, In large part because I think it describes her piano technique perfectly, at least to my ears. Not looking forward to a musical union from this couple at all.

How do you spend hours looking at a hearbeat?!?

Is Egypt a girl child? I foresee a ruby on her tummy and a diamond big as Texas on her toe. Good luck keeping her off the pole, honey.

More likely a career in belly dancing. Except she'll probably go by Lil' Egypt.

oh man. i will cut alicia slack for every horrible thing she does from here to eternity if she named her kid after a coasters song.

Alicia's still in de-Nile about Egypt's future.
