Alicia Keys just might have something new to sing about! According to sources for UsMagazine.com, the Grammy winner got quite the special 29th birthday gift on Jan. 25 -- a seven-carat engagement ring from her producer boyfriend Swizz Beatz. The couple was photographed on a Hawaiian beach the day before Key's birthday, the same day the proposal reportedly took place.
Keys' rep denies that the two are engaged, but a source close to the star says, "They are currently in Hawaii celebrating the engagement and her birthday. She feels blessed. She is thrilled. She is with the man who has inspired so much of her music and her new album [The Element of Freedom]."
If Keys and her 31-year-old beau -- who recently collaborated with Bono on a song to raise funds for Haitian earthquake victims -- do have plans to walk down aisle, what's with all the secrecy? Could be because Swizz Beatz is mid-divorce from first wife, R&B singer Mashonda, to whom he was married for four years.
If Alicia Keys and her boyfriend are engaged, should they keep it secret until his divorce is final? Chime in below!
