Alicia Keys' son Egypt keen to be in the limelight

Thursday June 6, 2013

Alicia Keys has revealed that her two-year-old son he wants to dance with her on stage.

The Girl On Fire singer told JLS member Marvin Humes on Daybreak that Egypt keeps asking her but she has to say no because it's too late.

She said: "He wants to be on the stage so bad. He has amazing rhythm and he asks me to get on stage.

“Every night, he's like, 'Can I come on stage? Can I dance?' So I'm trying to figure out the moment to do it but the moment that's good is kinda past his bedtime!"

Egypt was spotted busting some moves backstage at his mum’s concert at London's O2 Arena, as she continues on the European leg of her Girl On Fire world tour.

Alicia is delighted that her son can join her on the road.

"I guess I'm really fortunate because he's young enough to not be in school but old enough to travel well, so I'm fortunate to be able to bring him with me on the road," she said.

"I don't know what I'm going to do when he has to be in school, I really don't - I might just stop and be like 'Halt! - I can come out for the summers'."
