Kids sure do have a way of humbling you, even when you're a 15-time Grammy-winning artist.

Alicia Keys announced Monday that she will be hosting the 2019 Grammy Awards, which is surely a big deal following last year's gender controversy of not enough female winners , which resulted in a #GrammysSoMale hashtag.

This year's music awards show will be in Los Angeles on Feb. 10, 2019, and air on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

But it looks like Keys' kids didn't really understand how important the Grammys hosting gig was for their mom -- that or they just didn't care.

The artistshowing her coming home and excitedly sharing the news of her new hosting gig with her kids, who couldn't be less enthused if they tried.

"I got some good news guys, or I got some news. Guess what?" Keys asked her children, Genesis, 4, and Egypt, 8. "I am going to host the Grammys!"

Her announcement was met with a deafening silence until the awkwardness was interrupted by Genesis' little squeal (of excitement maybe?). Shortly after, Egypt asked "What's the Grammys?"

Although her kids weren't excited -- or maybe just confused -- Keys was more than happy about her hosting gig.

Pay attention at age 14. That's when most kids start to resist peer influence and flex the think-for-myself muscle, rather than simply following the leader, according to a study published in Developmental Psychology. Want to help strengthen that muscle at any age? Put screens aside and circle the wagons every night. Ask, "What's new with your friends?" This will (here's hoping, if he talks) give you a chance to decode what's happening behind the scenes and offer support.

The mom of two shared an almost-10-minute-long video of her receiving the news and the celebration and preparation that ensued after.
