The singer and activist is mom to two boys with husband Swizz Beatz: Egypt, 10, and Genesis, 4. She is also stepmom to Beatz’s children from his previous relationships: sons Prince Nasir and Kasseem, as well as daughter Nicole. 

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph in 2016, Keys said that as a female empowerment activist, she believes it’s “really on-purpose” that she’s a boy mom.

“It’s no wonder to me now that someone like me, who is known for songs like ‘A Woman’s Worth,’ ‘Superwoman’ and ‘Girl On Fire,’ is raising boys,” she told the outlet.

“I find that to be really on-purpose, a gift given to me. It feels very intentional of the universe to say this is an important part of what you need to do here. And I love it.”

As a mom of three on-and-off camera, the Modern Family matriarch is no stranger to the daily ins-and-outs of raising adolescents. The actress shares son Oliver, 13, and twins John and Gustav, 11, with ex-husband Scott Phillips.

“I grew up in a family of all girls so this is karmatic justice for torturing my father for so long,” she joked to PEOPLE in 2010. “Now I’m the only female in the house of four males. This is just a taste of what he had to suffer for a long time.”

Zoë Saldana

The Guardians of the Galaxy actress and husband Marco Perego are parents to twin boys Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio, 6 in December, plus their 3-year-old little brother Zen Anton Hilario.

“The third one was supposed to be [a daughter] and then my husband just doesn’t give any girls,” Saldana joked in February. “I would have been great as a mother of daughters, but the universe, in its irony, and how I became a mom of three boys in the post-#MeToo movement [means] I’m accepting the challenge.”

Saldana added that she is “having such a wonderful time” as a mom of sons, “because that means I get to witness and really nurture a young boy before he turns into a man, and I think that that’s the task for us mothers, as well.”

We have some space around us, so we’ve been utilizing that space and we’ve been outdoors a lot,” said Underwood, who shares the boys with husband Mike Fisher. “It’s been good, and they’re adventurous little boys and it’s great for us to just be able to get out. I’ve never been in one place for this long in the past 15-plus years of my career.”

“So it’s been really great to just really get to know them and watch them grow — especially Jake,” she added of her littlest one. “It’s such a critical time in his life and I’m never gonna get it back. So we’re just trying to enjoy it.”

Whether it’s sword fighting or playing basketball, we are constantly on the go.”
