Alicia and Swiss - her husband of four years - first announced they were expecting another child together on their wedding anniversary in July.

Soon after, Alicia revealed she was due to give birth on New Years Eve, but instead Genesis was born five days early.

The couple are already parents to four-year-old Egypt, who has been looking forward to having another sibling.

Speaking before the birth of her second son, Alicia said Egypt was "so ready" to be a big brother.

"Are you kidding?! He's not going to be the baby anymore. He's so ready," she claimed.
