Merry Christmas to Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz! They just got the best gift ever—a baby boy.

The Grammy award-winning singer and her hip hop artist/music producer hubby welcomed their second son together on Saturday, December 27. They announced the big news on Instagram:

A biblical name! Alicia captioned sweet pic with a rhyme (how fitting): "The joy of joy is joy!! It's a boy! We are so grateful!! #blessings!!"

As the Instagram post notes, baby Genesis Ali Dean was born at 1:52 a.m., weighing at 6 pounds, five ounces. He joins big brother Egypt Daoud, 4, and half-siblings, Beatz's children from a former relationship—his daughter, Nicole, and sons Prince Nasir and Kasseem.

Alicia, 33, and Swizz, 36, announced the pregnancy while celebrating their fourth anniversary, on Instagram, of course:
