She spoke about how she’s gone about blending her family with Swizz Beat and his former wife,Mashonda Tifrere.

A heavily pregnant Alicia Keys visited Wendy Williams to promote her new children's book, Blue Moon: From the Journals of Mama Mae & LeeLee.

"When everybody is able to be an adult, which we all are able to be, and we’re able to recognize that actually there’s a beautiful value about the way that we can all influence each other’s lives and the lives of the kids so that they can really see that they can have more than one woman to look to and say, ‘what can I learn here? What can I learn there?’” she said.

“It’s really, really important and I think it’s so beautiful….it doesn’t always work, but it’s totally possible and it can work when everyone wants to do the right thing for the children and for each other.”

Alicia, Mashonda and Swizz were seen vacationing with their children at Nikki Beach in St. Barts, and later at a birthday party in New York.

It looks like things have since improved for the group since the public spats of years gone by.

It’s good to see them getting along for the kids!
