LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Grammy-winning R&B singer Alicia Keys and her rapper boyfriend Swizz Beatz welcomed their first child into the world, a representative for the couple said on Friday.

The boy, Egypt Daoud Dean, was born October 14 in New York City. Keys and Beatz were married in late July this year, and they have been together since 2008.

Keys has won 12 Grammy awards since releasing her first album, "Songs in A Minor," in 2001. Beatz, whose real name is Kasseem Dean, produced rap acts before mounting his first solo album in 2002, "G.H.E.T.T.O. Stories."
