Alicia Keys' Blended Family

Alicia Keys has gushed about her "beautiful" blended family, saying that she often bonds with the mothers of her husband's other children and has formed a supportive network.

The singer is married to Swiss Beats, who she has sons Egypt, eight, and Genesis, four with, and has a close relationship with Swizz's former wife Mashonda, with whom he has 12-year-old Kasseem Jr., as well as Nicole Levy, who is mother to his 18-year-old son Prince, and Jahna Sebastian, with whom he has 11-year-old daughter Nicole.

Alicia says the women have created a "sisterhood" together and always "support one another" in making sure their kids are "flourishing".

Speaking about her blended family to Essence magazine, she said: "There are plenty of people who have new families and are then able to bring their entire families together. Whatever's natural, you know? It's just a natural vibe. You can get to know each other and actually create sisterhood, create understanding. I just don't think we get to see it a lot, or at least it's not featured, even in the media. You do something super positive and the media's not paying attention to that. It's wild, whack. We are really proud of it. Our kids are flourishing. They're beautiful. And it's a constant process for us. We talk. We support one another. We build."

The 38-year-old said she first realised she was an adult when she gave birth, and says entering motherhood was a real transition.

She explained: "The thing that comes to my mind is when I gave birth to Egypt, my first son. I went to visit my mama and my 'auntie,' who has known my mother for a billion years. I was introducing her to the baby, and I'll never forget the first thing she said to me: 'Oh, you got your big-girl panties on now.' She was right. Prior to that moment, I would have definitely not had my big-girl panties on. I remember it was like a real transition."
