Alicia Keys gave birth to son Genesis Ali Dean early on Saturday morning. It’s baby No. 2 for the Grammy winner and her husband, producer-rapper Swizz Beatz, who are also parents to 4-year-old Egypt Daoud.

The 33-year-old singer shared the news on her Instagram account Sunday with a photo of Genesis’ footprints. The image also details that the baby was born at 1:52 a.m. and weighs 6 pounds, 5 ounces.

In her social media captions, Keys said that “the joy of joy is joy” and that she is grateful.
