Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz Engaged?

Alicia Keys is off the market. She's been off the market for at least a year, but now the star is REALLY off the market. UsMagazine.com is reporting Alicia got engaged to producer/rapper Swizz Beatz over the weekend. The site's got a ring pic to prove it. No word from R&B singer Mashonda, the influential producer's outspoken ex. Still, we think "No One" can get in the way of how Alicia feels about her man...
The proposal reportedly occurred in Hawaii on Jan. 24, a day before Keys' 29th birthday. She was snapped by paparazzi flashing a 7-carat diamond while strolling the beach with her man.
A friend of the couple tells Us, "She is thrilled. She is with the man who has inspired so much of her music and her new album [The Element of Freedom]."
No word on how Us knows the rock is 7-carats. Must be their crack team of forensic photo experts.
Swizz Beatz admitted to the romance with Keys last May, after hinting at it in a remix for Drake's "Best I Ever Had."
"Wake up in the morning and my baby cooked me breakfast, A's naked wearing nothing but a necklace," Beatz, real name Joseph Dean, raps on the re-imagined hit.
"What we have is so precious," he told the Daily News.
The romance must be more precious to the producer than his previous marriage to singer Mashonda, with whom Beatz has a young child. The two have been finalizing their split since February when the divorce was initially filed.
In an open letter published last September, Mashonda wrote, "If you are reading this Alicia, let me start by saying, you know what you did." She continues, "You know how you contributed to the ending of my marriage... If it's so, that you and my husband are meant to be together, then God bless you both and I hope you never have to deal with what I did."
