Alicia Keys Grateful For Baby

Alicia Keys says her pregnancy is "the most brilliant gift".

The singer - who is five months pregnant with her first child by her fiance, music producer Swizz Beatz - is loving every aspect of her pregnancy so far.

She said: "Oh, I love children and I love family and I love that interaction. Because I had a really close relationship with my mother I understand that deep powerful love, and it's so beautiful. To be a mother to a child is the most brilliant gift, it's gorgeous."

And the 'Empire State of Mind' singer also revealed impending motherhood has changed her, making her seek a more stable life.

She added to The Daily Telegraph website: "I'm definitely in a place where I have a different sensibility about things. I remember how I used to be, 'I'm going on the road and I'm back when I'm back and I'm probably gone a long time.'

"I felt that's what I needed to do and nothing could stop me. There was no amount of love - no amount of anything - that could drag me down. That was then. And now there is a desire in me to have more stability."

Rather than be in a rush to achieve more in her career, the 29-year-old singer feels peaceful and content with her life.

She said: "I don't feel this endless need, 'I've got to get there, I've got to get there.'

"I've got to get peace. I have to be peaceful and I have to be happy."
