Alicia loving 'motherhood'

Alicia Keys has told her fans just how much she's enjoying being a mum.

She's posted her first update on Twitter since the birth of her baby boy Egypt Daoud Dean on Thursday.

She's told her followers "There is no word to properly describe LOVE, to describe BLISS, to express a FEELING like this! Thank U 4 your love, support and prayers!" 

It's the first child for the 29-year-old star and the fourth child for Beatz, whose real name is Kaseem Dean.

The couple was married July 31 this year, and have been together since 2008.

Beatz , 31, sent a tweet on Friday that showed his joy at the birth.

"I'm so thankful for everything I been blessed with in my life wowwwwww!," he tweeted.

Keys has won 12 Grammy awards since releasing her first album, Songs in A Minor, in 2001.
