Alicia Keys is a mama on fire!

Just days after celebrating the holidays with her family, the "Girl on Fire" and "Fallin" singer welcomed her second child, another boy, with husband Swizz Beatz. Their baby was born early on Saturday. His name: Genesis Ali Dean.

"The joy of joy is joy!! It's a boy!!" Key said on Instagram on Sunday. "We are so grateful!!#blessings!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️"

The Hollywood couple is already proud parents to their four-year-old son, Egypt, who was "so ready" to be a big brother long ago.

"He's not going to be the baby anymore," Keys told E! News while supporting Keep a Child Alive. "He's already preparing. He has like a little doll where he's like, ‘Am I supposed to be doing this? Am I supposed to be doing that?' He's so ready. It's a blessing."

This is the second child for Keys, while her husband has three kids from past relationships.

While we're impressed with Egypt's attitude, we also can't help but applaud Keys' openness at sharing her growing belly throughout her pregnancy.

When she wasn't rocking a bump on the red carpet or onstage at concert venues, the "No One" crooner made time to pose completely nude for a cause near and dear to her heart.

"It's you and me on a mission to create a kinder and more peaceful world," Keys wrote on Instagram while revealing her bump in a sexy nude pic. "The #WeAreHere Movement begins today. Read more here and thank you @nickkristof for sharing your bright voice with all of us."

And then there's the memorable pic of Uncle Bono (yes, the lead singer from U2) who kissed Keys' belly days before giving birth.

"Baby love from Uncle B," she captioned while glowing in a fitted silver dress. "Maybe the baby will be our Christmas gift... we'll let u know."

So maybe the precious baby didn't come before Christmas. It's safe to say, however, that it was well worth the wait! Congrats to the happy family!
