Pregnant Alicia Keys Performs For The Last Time Before Giving Birth

The singer took to the stage at last night’s MTV EMAs, showing off her vocal talents, presenting skills and seven-month-pregnant bump

In just a couple of months Alicia Keys will be welcoming her second child with rapper Swizz Beatz, but being seven months pregnant didn’t stop the chart-topper from singing her heart out at the MTV EMAs last night in Glasgow.


The 33-year-old singer donned a floor-length silver gown for the occasion, which hugged her baby bump nicely and made her look every inch the superstar. In addition to presenting the awards for Best Song, Alicia performed her latest hit – but rather than dancing around the stage, chose to sit at a piano and not overdo it.


Alicia, who’s already a mum to three-year-old son Egypt, posted about her performance on her Instagram account, writing, ‘Lights, camera, action! My very last performance for this year!’

Alicia’s not the only celebrity to take to the stage while pregnant. Beyonce famously revealed she was pregnant with her daughter Blue Ivy after a performance, while Sam Bailey sung at Brighton Pride just a couple of weeks before her third child was born in September.
