Pregnant Alicia Keys Reveals Disney-Inspired Baby Names She’s Considering

The pregnant singer hints at the baby names her family is inspired by

Choosing a baby name can be a tricky business, so you need all the help – and inspiration – you can get. And for Alicia Keys, that inspiration is coming from her three-year-old son, Egypt.

Although the pregnant singer and her husband Swizz Beatz haven’t yet revealed the sex of their baby, Alicia reveals that Egypt is hoping for a boy – but has picked out names for a boy and a girl, just in case. And just like any preschooler, the names he likes are taken from his favourite film, The Little Mermaid.

‘He’s like, “What about Prince Eric or Ariel",’ says Alicia on Live! With Kelly & Michael. Should Alicia, 33, choose one of those names, she wouldn’t be the first celeb mum to opt for a Disney baby name.

Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christenson revealed last week that they’ve named their daughter Briar Rose, from Sleeping Beauty, and Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes named their daughter Esmeralda.
