    Alicia Keys may have a performer on her hands!

    The singer told E! News at the Keep a Child Alive's 10th Annual Black Ball in New York City on Thursday that her 3-year-old son Egypt Daoud Dean has grown fond of the limelight.

    "Sometimes he doesn't like cameras," she admitted. "But I think he's got into it. He's definitely a ham, he loves it!"

    She also gushed about motherhood and how impressed she is with her little one.

    "He is amazing," the singer, who looked stunning in a revealing red gown, said about her pride and joy.

    "He swims by himself, he is so independent, he is extremely smart. I ask him to count to tens from 500 to 100 and he can do it. His rhythm is kind of impressive!"

    NEWS: Is Alicia Keys ready for baby No. 2?!

    Alicia, who was joined by her son and hubby Swiss Beatz on the red carpet, also confessed that she's not quite ready to add to her brood just yet.

    "Not right now, but never say never!" the 28-year-old singing sensation told us.

    When asked if he wants a brother or a sister, the cute munchkin enthusiastically replied "Yes!" with a high five.

    So adorable!

    Alicia was also sure to address the reason for the evening's event, to "come together and provide medicine for children and families who had AIDS and couldn't afford it."

    She added, "what we do at Keep a Child Alice is absolutely real and it gets to the people."
