There have been a lot of celebrities over the years who have had a hugely successful career, before then going on to start a family. Many of these celebrities have spoken out about having a baby and starting a family with their partners, while still trying to make sure that they do not take their careers for granted.
It is never easy to have a successful career, while at the same time trying to raise a family and there is a definite need to try to find a balance between work life and family life. That is something that singer Alicia Keys has had to discover, since giving birth to her baby boy who is now three years old. Alicia has opened up about how her life has changed and the difficulties she has faced.
Keys explained, "The trickiest part of being a mom is the balancing act of [doing] all the things that I love like producing films ... and making music and going on tour. It's just a balancing act between all the work and family and life and things that all of us, any woman who's a mother and has a family, understands and has to go through. That's probably the most difficult part."
Fortunately though, especially for her fans, Alicia Keys has managed to find a way to keep her career on track, while still finding time to raise her son right. It is never easy but there is always a way.
