Alicia Keys was surrounded in a glow of love when she hit the red carpet at the 7th Annual Keep a Child Alive Black Ball in New York City last night.

Only one month shy of giving birth to her first child with rapper and producer, Swizz Beatz, the 29-year-old showed off her baby bump in a gray lace strapless Dolce & Gabbana gown with gathered detail at the waist. She accentuated her floor-length dress with comfortable jeweled flats, soft and pretty makeup, and head jewelry wrapped around a top knot updo.

"I'm happy she's glowing. She's always glowing though," Beatz told OK! of his wife. "She helps me glow so that's an amazing thing."

As our friends over at PopEater report, Keep a Child Alive acts to provide medicine for children with HIV/AIDS in Africa and India and Keys said that her active role in the cause is something she hopes is passed down to her baby.

"The baby is going to see everything that I do, and that we do, and I think that being a giving individual and being a person that knows we can all do something. It doesn't necessarily need to be the biggest thing that ever happened," she explained. "That's okay. Something small and little, reaching out to one person in the world is changing that one person in the world and that's a big deal. I plan to show that in every way."
