Alicia Keys and her unborn baby "are fine" following her fall on stage at the weekend.

The 'Fallin' singer - who is pregnant with her first child with her fiance Swizz Beatz - was performing at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, when she fell backwards, tripped and landed on her bottom.

The 29-year-old star, who is due to give birth in September, was wearing four-inch heels at the time of her slip.

Her spokesperson said: "Alicia and baby are fine and all is well."

Following the incident at the festival - where she performed alongside LL Cool J, Mary J. Blige, Janet Jackson and Estelle - Alicia flew to New York City for the wedding of her hip-hop producer lover's mother.

Alicia and Swizz Beatz - real name Kaseem Dean - have been dating since 2008 and plan to get married later this year, after his divorce from his first wife Mishonda Tifrere is finalised.
