Alicia Keys Provides a Hilariously Relatable Glimpse of Life With Her Kids

Alicia Keys had a busy summer. She performed at Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee and released Keys II, the deluxe edition of her 2021 album Keys. But when she isn’t showing off her impressive vocal range, she’s enjoying life at home with her kids Egypt, 11, and Genesis, 7, whom she shares with husband Kasseem “Swizz Beatz” Daoud Dean. She recently shared a glimpse of her family life on Instagram, and it is so relatable.

“PSA to all parents 🗣,” she captioned the video posted yesterday. “These kids definitely run our lives 🤣🤣🤣🤣.”

In the video, Genesis walks in the kitchen and asks his mama if  he can sleep in her bed. Then the screen cuts to Egypt, who is lying on the floor in the kitchen and says, “Can I sleep in your bed, Mommy?”

The “Show Me Love” singer then walks in and says, “No!” This prompts Genesis to run after her and say, “I want to, though!”

The disrespect! Actually, her kids are super adorable, and so far, the video is so relatable. My kids always ask to sleep in my bed, but due to boundaries (read: not wanting elbows and feet jabbing me all night) I always say no too.

Next, Keys’ video switches to the classic SpongeBob SquarePants voice and screen that says, “Eleven minutes later…”
