Alicia Keys, who was a coach on The Voice for seasons 11, 12 and 14, recently posted on Instagram celebrating her 12-year wedding anniversary with Swizz Beatz. The eight-time Grammy winner shared pictures of her gorgeous dress and her happy day all rolled into one Instagram photo carousel.

Look at the photos

Keys captioned the photo, “This is the day we got married!/Look at those cute cakes!!/Those same stars are still in our eyes/And it’s only getting better!!!!”

According to her autobiography “More Me: A JourneyKeys met her husband when he still went by his first name, Kasseem Dean. She was only 14 at the time and he was 16. They didn’t go to the same high school, but a mutual friend introduced them. They hung around in the same circles for years, but Keys “didn’t want anything to do with that scene or with Swizz,” she wrote.

That changed when they started working together professionally. Keys wrote in her autobiography: “The more we talked, the more I noticed how his mind worked. Beyond the baggy jeans and arm tattoos, there was depth. He was so aware of what was happening around the world.”

Beatz proposed in 2010 and the couple married that same year. They now have two sons, Egypt Daoud, 12, and Genesis Ali, 8. reports people.

The “keys” to a happy marriage

Keys not only shared amazing pictures of her wedding in her 12th anniversary Instagram post, but also revealed how she and her husband keep their marriage strong. Although she spoke directly to her husband, her words went down well with fans as valuable advice.

Keys wrote, “When we took our vows, we wanted our love to never be about controlling each other or being each other’s bosses or anything else.

The former Voice coach continued, “We love each other with open arms and an open heart. We love each other the way we are and we grow together, even in our different ways and directions.” And there’s secret number two: love yourself, mistakes and everything.

Keys added, “We’re best friends. We are so transparent and connected to each other. We laugh a lot and we love a lot and we appreciate each other.” Several lessons to learn here: be best friends, be honest, celebrate laughter and “love hard”.

The 41-year-old ended her post with, “I can’t believe it love! 12 years!! Out of pure love! There is no love more precious than this! There is NOTHING more precious than that! I wake up and look forward to you every day! Forever more.”

Fans were over the moon at how happy Keys and her husband are together, and some vowed to follow their lead. a fan wrote, “Happiest anniversary, two amazing people!! You guys vibrate your love wherever you go.” Another commented, “Happy birthday to you both. May your love for one another continue to grow through many lifetimes. It is a true blessing to experience free love without limits of infinite expression. 🙏🏾❤🙏🏾 All the best to you both!!”

Someone else posted, “Nice atmosphere. Congratulations on the first 12. I wish you many more sunsets and wonderful moments.” Another impressed fan posted“Damn to be so in love after 12 years 😍” there commented another, “That’s the ticket! I’m so glad you’re freeing each other!!”

A fan suggested that Keys is writing a book about the secrets of lasting love, which states: “People need help to understand how intimate partnerships work. Especially young people planning their future.”
