Alicia Keys Vows Son Egypt Will Be Compassionate

Singer and philanthropist Alicia Keys wants nothing but the best for her 1-year old son Egypt Daoud. Alicia and hubby Swizz Beatz hosted the Keep A Child Alive Black Ball and shared their hope for their young child.

Alicia told People,

“For him to be able to see what happens in the world and be able to see different cultures and people and happenings – I think it opens your mind wide up.”

“While I was [in Africa] shooting [a documentary for World AIDS Day], I was pregnant. It was so powerful being there … I thought to myself, ‘Wow, here he is experiencing this and he’s not even here yet,’” she recalls.

“I think as a compassionate person, which I really want to teach him to be, you naturally want to lend and be a part of change. I know that naturally he’ll find the thing that he’s passionate about and wants to change.”

Indeed. What do you think of Alicia Keys’ parenting plan?
