Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys are expecting their second child together this December, which will be the rapper’s fifth child.

In an interview with VLAD TV, Beatz revealed how he feels about his growing family.

“That’s a serious number,” Beatz said of baby No. 5.

“When you say it out loud, it’s like, ‘Wow!’ But my kids have shaped my life in a way that I never expected. Kids are blessings. It’s like, the best gift you can get in this world is life.”

Beatz adds that he has “so much fun” with his children, but don’t expect him to follow in the footsteps of T.I.‘s family-based reality series.

“If we had a TV show it’d be way off the charts. But we have our own TV show being around each other privately. (Alicia) ain’t never signing off on it and I don’t blame her,” he says.

“Those [shows] are made to bring you up and take the chair from under you. Even though it would be a positive show, which we need more of, but (no), we’re cool.”

While Beatz currently has four kids with three different women, they’ve all managed to get along for the sake of the children.

“I think it’s all a level of maturity,” said Beatz, who was previously married to Mashonda. “When you’re young and you do stupid things. …

“Being that all parties are now grown up, everybody has been great parents. It’s been a long journey, but it’s finally a comfortable journey. Everybody has respect for each other and they all know it’s about the kids.”
