 American RnB singer and songwriter  Alicia Keys is over the moon after she celebrated her 12th wedding anniversary.

Alicia is married to popular music producer, Kasseem Dean popularly known by his stage name Swizz Beats.

The Grammy and BET award winning 41-year-old shared a wedding photo of herself and Swizz Beats from 2010 and captioned  it "This is the day we got married! Look at these cutie pies!! Those same stars are still in our eyes And it's only getting better!!!!"

Cuteness overload!


She then went ahead to add that in the 12 years they have been together she feels that they have kept the promises they made to each other during their vows.

Alicia wrote, "when we said our vows we wanted our love to never be about controlling each other, or being the boss of each other We set each other free, we love each other with open arms, and an open heart.

We love each other just the way we are and we grow together even in our different ways and directions. We are best friends. We're so transparent and connected to each other. We laugh hard and we love hard and we cherish each other.

Alicia finished off her long post by emphasizing that to her there was nothing more precious than her relationship with her husband.

Honestly in their industry and in this age 12 years without drama is a big steal.

The 'In Common' hit-maker wrote, " I can't believe it my love! 12 years!! Of pure love! There's no love more precious then this! There's NOTHING more precious than this! I wake up looking forward to you everyday! Forever more Yours." 

Swizz also shared photos from their wedding day and gushed over his wife being his best friend.

The 43-year-old wrote, " Today 12 years ago I married my best friend 🙏🏽 Every sec has been filled with love and adventures 💜 The best part is we didn’t even start yet🙏🏽 Love you 4 life Queen Happy Anniversary  12 years. THEM DEANS."

The cute couple are just something off a fairy tale book, they actually first met when they were teenager Alicia was 14-year-old while Swizz was 16-years but they were all about working on their budding careers then but they found each other again years later. 

During an interview back in 2013, Alicia told Wendy Williams that a mutual friend introduced them however at the time, Alicia wasn't interested in him at all, and in fact thought he was a pain to be around

Alicia and Swizz have been blessed with two sons, Egypt Daoud, 11, and Genesis Ali Dean, 7. However Swizz has three other kids from his previous relationship with ex-wife Mashonda.
