London: Singer Alicia Keys who has eight-month-old son Egypt, says motherhood has given her a "reason in life".

"Motherhood is heaven. It`s so purposeful and such fun. I feel much wiser in the choices I make. I have a reason in life I never had before," quoted her as saying.

The 30-year-old, who is married to Swizz Beatz admits fame scared her in the initial phase.

"I suddenly found myself doing tours, TV shows and flying every day. Everyone wanted a piece of me and that was scary. Being from New York, I covered that up," she added.
