By Whitney Vasquez

Alicia Keys is gushing over her husband after nearly a decade of marriage.

The "Raise A Man" singer wrote a heartfelt post about how thankful she is for her "biggest supporter," Swizz Beatz, on their 9-year anniversary.


Sharing a picture of the music producer planting a fat one on his wife, Keys began with the caption, "I swear I have never been more in love with you! You are EVERYTHING."

Listing off all of his greatest qualities, the singer stated that Swizz Beatz is "My best friend My lover My mindsharer My life partner My cheerleader My dream increaser My biggest supporter I could list 100 more."

She continued, "I am SO blessed by your love Happy anniversary my king I’m so in awe of the power of love."

Swizz Beatz reciprocated the love and also shared a beautiful tribute to his wife on social media.

Posting a black and white video on Instagram showing a clip of him and Keys vibing in a car to a classic, he wrote, "9yrs in the Zone #happyanniversary Them Deans."

FYI -- Swizz Beatz real name is Kasseem Dean.

The duo has known each other since their teens.

She was 16 years old and he was 17 when a mutual friend reportedly suggested, "Oh you gotta meet Swizz, and Alicia’s about to blow up and Swizz is doing his thing and maybe one day you’ll work together.”

It wasn't always a love connection.

Speaking openly about their first meeting, Keys told Marie Claire UK, "Honestly, I didn't really like him that much. I thought he was too ostentatious."

Adding further insult to injury she added, "Everything with him is really over the top. I used to see him and think, 'He is so annoying.'"

Despite her initial reservations, a pregnant Keys and Swizz Beatz said "I do" in July 2010.

She had their first child -- a son, Egypt Daoud Dean -- months later in October.

They had their second son, Genesis Ali Dean, four years later.
