Alanis Morissette has some big news!
On Friday, it was confirmed that the Ironic singer is pregnant with her second child with her husband Mario “Souleye” Treadway. How exciting!
The twosome married and welcomed their first child Ever Imre Morissette-Treadway into the world back in 2010. In fact, the Canadian native wrote a song for her husband before their son’s birth and has since animated a music video for the track with the help of artist Brendan Huza.
Recently, Miz Morissette took to her website and wrote:
“…written, recorded and produced in six hours on May 22, 2010 with Guy Sigsworth, on the sly, to surprise Souleye. Brendan Huza helped tell our story in moving pictures, bringing us up to this sweet moment. May this song take on ever-deepening meaning as each year goes by xoxo”
Aww! That is just so sweet.
Though Alanis is already a seasoned mom, we think she’ll handle having two kids beautifully — especially after dishing out some seriously impressive advise in her column for The Guardian.
To one mom who felt trapped by motherhood, she penned:
“One of my pet peeves is when people say mothers ‘have to take care of their needs first,’ using the oxygen mask on a plane theory. The commitment you have made to being at home to raise your children is beyond commendable. It will afford them security as they continue to develop, but it does not leave room for much else on your list of priorities right now.”
That’s very fair. She continued:
“This is a gift you are offering them that they will carry with them through every stage of their development. But at each stage I hope you are availing yourself of something vital: community….Doing it all on your own only leads to burnout. I hope you are able to rely on friends, family, neighbors and support groups. Ask for help: even if it is just someone coming to watch your children for an hour while you shower (luxury!) or eat something nutritious.”
Well said! We couldn’t be happier for Alanis and her husband as they prepare for their bundle of joy.
