Singer Alicia Keys says motherhood made her realize her strength.
The 35-year-old singer, who has sons Egypt, six, and 22 month old Genesis with her husband Swizz Beats, said admitted being a parent has opened her up to a “new space,” reported Female First.
“I’m in this new place. It’s growth, time, living, feeling and just ... Being more.
“Once I became a mother I knew I was strong, but not ready to do what I’m doing now. If I had to attribute it to anything, I’d say that it’s taking more time to listen to myself. I never did that before and I think it’s opened up a new space in me; aggressive, unafraid, uninhibited, calling it as I see it ... And not whatever else I used to be,” Keys said.
