Heavily pregnant Alicia Keys isn't putting her feet up just yet, and was spotted making another public appearance yesterday - despite her due date being just four weeks away.

From glamorous charity galas, to performing at the MTV EMAs and now promoting her brand new children's book, mummy-to-be Alicia is definitely showing no signs of slowing down just yet.

Stepping out in New York yesterday evening (12 November), Alicia added being an author to her list of many talents as she attended a book signing for her new children's book, Blue Moon.

Wearing jeans and a two-tone leather jacket, the 'We Are Here' singer looked effortlessly cool for the occasion, held at a Barnes & Noble store in the Big Apple.

The book tells the tale of a young girl and her magical grandmother and follows a story-telling app Alicia had previously launched, inspired by her own relationship with her grandmother in the past.

How sweet.

Following a read-through of her new book, Alicia tweeted: "I loved reading Blue Moon tonight for you and your bright little ones! Beautiful to see their [love] of books!"

Alicia looked elegant recently at a charity gala in Manhattan.

Alicia's latest outing comes after the star travelled across the pond to perform at the MTV EMAs in Glasgow on Sunday night (9 November).

Not phased by the long flight and the fact that she is around eight months pregnant, the US beauty made the long journey and looked incredible in a bump-hugging glitzy gown.

Just the week before, Alicia turned up the glam in an elegant ball gown to attend Keep A Child Alive's 11th Annual Black Ball in Manhattan.

Phew! We hope she's planning to put her feet up soon.

With a little one on the way, Alicia has revealed she is due to give birth next month on New Year's Eve.

The star is expecting her second child with Swizz Beatz - her husband of four years. The couple are already proud parents to their four-year-old son Egypt - who according to Alicia is "so ready" to be a big brother.

Aww - not long to go now!
