The `Girl on Fire` singer has a 23-month-old son, Egypt, with husband Swizz Beatz and while she admits the tot can be hard work at times, she knows she`s lucky to have a son who is generally well behaved.
She said: "I want him to be great and there`s a time for everything so we go through a lot of emotions but it`s mostly all love, which is the most important thing. But he`s a good one, he`s really good - I definitely got a good one!"
Alicia also says Egypt is starting to take after her when it comes to music and has already started playing the piano.
She told British TV show `BBC Breakfast`: "He`ll be two next month and he has a huge personality - he`s just incredible. He loves to play the piano and he loves to dance. He`s just a joy. I haven`t got him doing the scales just yet, and I don`t want to be that type of mother but I have observed that when he`s playing the piano against another child of his age, the other child is like bang, bang, bang and he`s different. So he has good construction in his fingers so maybe it`s just natural."
