Five Romantic Engagement Stories From Hip-Hop Power Couples


Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys

Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys recently celebrated their third-year anniversary as a happily married couple in July. The pair got engaged a day before her 29th birthday in January 2010.

Beatz popped the question to Keys while on a lavish Hawaiian vacation where he reportedly offered her a huge seven-carat diamond ring. The pair soon announced that Alicia was pregnant with their first son, Egypt Daoud Ibarr Dean, which she gave birth to in October of that same year. Meanwhile, six months after Swizzy asked for Ms. Key’s hand in marriage, they officially tied the knot on the French Island of Corsica in July 2010.
