Celebrity Mommyhood: Alicia Keys Shares Her Potty Training Experience..”It’s Like Boot Camp”

September 7, 2012  |  

To any mother facing the potty training phase of parenthood, hold your worries, celebrity mom and beautiful songbird Alicia Key’s compares it to bootcamp.

According to People.com:

When it comes to his milestones, Alicia Keys‘ son Egypt Daoud is on fire.

“He just got potty trained!” the Girl on Fire songstress, who took the stage Thursday night alongside Nicki Minaj to perform their new duet at the MTV Video Music Awards, tells PEOPLE.

“Basically, [you have to] take them to the military! I took him to the military! No, it’s really just consistency and love and support and it was just amazing.”

The “proud” mama — who spent the evening cuddling close with husband Swizz Beatz and the couple’s 23-month-old son — says she is “in love” with her new album.

“It really talks about each part of our lives as human beings, and it has a ton of variety [and] takes you on all these different journeys,” Keys, 31, explains. “It’s powerful stuff, and I think you’re going to really love it.”

According to Keys, the tracks pay homage to her experiences from her career to her marital and motherhood ventures.

“It’s a new world for me, it’s a new life for me,” she says. “I’m more in control of myself as a woman, as a businesswoman, as a mom, as a wife. Everything is new.”

    At least Alicia didn’t announce her pregnancy for publicity and attention. She actually carried and gave birth to her baby, as well as knew when to bow out gracefully. Beyonce has been in the spotlight with her folding belly from beginning up to now. Running out of rabbits to pull out her hat to stay relevant.
