Alicia Keys' son loves to dance.

The 31-year-old singer says two-year-old Egypt is already showing signs of following in the footsteps of his famous parents, Alicia and her husband Swizz Beatz.

She said: ''Lately he's been getting his performer on. He'll just break into a pose or dance.''

Egypt also appears on 'When It's All Over', a song on Alicia's new album 'Girl On Fire' and the singer is proud of the tot.

She said: ''When I was writing the lyrics in Jamaica, he came into the room and became enamoured with the microphone. It was so cute! When it came time to record the song, I decided that he needed to be included.''

Swizz also performed on the record and Alicia loved having the whole family involved.

She added to Us Weekly magazine: ''He's a true partner. He encourages me to be fully myself. Sometimes I want to shy away but he doesn't let me. I've found the love of my life!''
