Alicia Keys has the best possible reason to be singing a happy tune today:

The artist has welcomed her second child into the world!

Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys

Keys confirmed the exciting news herself today online, posting a picture of her little boy's footprints and name, Genesis Ali Dean. He born at 1:52 a.m. on Saturday and weighed 6 pounds, 5 ounces.

Speaking for herself and husband Swiss Beatz, the Grammy winner wrote on Instagram:

"The joy of joy is joy!! It's a boy!! we are so grateful!! #blessings!!."

Keys announced in July that she and the music producer were expecting again via Instagram, telling followers at that time:

"We've been blessed with another angel on the way!! You make me happier than I have ever known! Here's to many many more years of the best parts of life!"

Keys and Beatz wed at a private home on the Mediterranean Sea in August 2010 and welcomed son Egypt two months later.

We send the newly expanded family our very best wishes.
