Superproducer Swizz Beats and his wife Alicia Keys celebrated 5-years of martial bliss on Friday (July 31st). So, the “drunk in love” couple jetted to a tropical island to celebrate, bringing their adorable 7-month-old son Genesis along for the fun.
Getting away from the every day hustle of life, the Deans are currently on a “lovecation” to celebrate their love on a beautiful island. And little Genesis got a chance to sink his fingers into the sand. The "28 Thousand Days” songstress posted this precious photo of Baby Dean on the beach:
She captioned, “On your path to the sun; wind comes, rain comes, clouds and confusion. But cherish every day, cause u can't get it back and every stumble, every misstep, every victory, every triumph every minute/moment/second makes you who you are..... Shine!! #lovealicia #blessedsunday #28000days photo by: @therealswizzz”
For Sunday Funday, the trio enjoyed a delicious lunch on the beach when Swizz turned the camera on Genesis for a heartwarming clip. In the video, Swizz is asking Baby Genesis what is his name, where the curly haired baby did his best to respond, “Da Da.” Check it:
Nice! Congrats to the couple on their 5th year anniversary.

Her co-star Phaedra Parks paid her respects to Bobbi Kristina Brown at her funeral in Alpheretta, GA this weekend.
