Alicia Keys is pregnant with her first child.

The Grammy Award-winning R&B singer has been dating producer Swizz Beatz, who has written hits for Beyonce, Jay-Z and others.

They are engaged to be married at a private ceremony later this year.

Representatives for the couple confirmed the news on Thursday night.

Keys last year teamed up with Jay-Z for a hit song about New York called Empire State of Mind.

She's among a string of international artists due to perform at a June 10 concert to mark the start of the football World Cup in South Africa.

Beatz has been married before and has two sons.
