Alicia Keys

New to motherhood and new to marriage, Alicia Keys recently told MTV that she was “built” to be a mother.  Keys’ profession as a recording artist, musician and actress already keep her busy. For her to be a new wife and a new mom and still be adamant about music is nothing short of amazing.

Check out some highlights from the MTV interview below.

On being a mom:
“The past year has been incredible; just so many blessings, being able to be a mommy, being able to be a wife and just really finding my center and my place of comfort and knowing myself and feeling really solid. Being a mom is spectacular. It’s the most fun I’ve ever had, period. I feel like I’m having more fun than I’ve ever had in my whole life. I feel like I’m definitely more creative. I’m more thoughtful about my plans and the things that I do, so overall everything is like a hundred times better. I’m loving the process and I plan for it to continue to grow as time passes.”

On not getting any sleep because of the baby:
“I never was one to get a lot of sleep anyway, because of the nature of what I do and how much we fly and how much we work. So honestly, I’ll tell Egypt, That’s all you got?! You only got waking up every three hours, that’s it? C’mon! I guess in a way, I was built for it.”

The Songs in A Minor 10th-anniversary edition is set to drop on June 28, and Keys’ intimate, piano-only show hits New York’s Beacon Theatre on June 30.
