Alanis Morissette announces that she is expecting baby number two
Alanis Morissette is expecting her second child announcing the news through an animated music video.
The singer announced that she is expecting her second child with husband Mario ‘Souleye’ Treadway through a music video telling the story of the couple’s life.
The story ends with the family of three looking at a sonogram of the new addition to the family.
Alanis said on Twitter the video is, “The story of my nuclear family in moving pictures, brings us up to this sweet moment. Souleye + Ever + me + love = sweetness. May this song take on ever-deepening meaning as each year goes by.”
Alanis Morissette and rapper, Mario “Souleye” Treadway married in 2010 and are already parents to son Ever Imre Morissette-Treadway.
Alanis wrote in The Guardian on Friday, “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.”
“Doing it all on your own only leads to burnout. I hope you are able to rely on friends, family, neighbours and support groups. Ask for help: even if it is just someone to watch you children for an hour while you shower (luxury!) or eat something nutritious.”
In the column the singer spoke candidly with struggling with the post-partum period.
“Even with support around me, I found the post-partum period challenging. If reaching out to a therapist or doctors offers support for you I highly recommend that as well. You are about to enter back into the grey, threefold. You that it is perfectly appropriate for you to have a dusty, messy, cluttered home for a while. Your priorities are breathtaking, and if anyone takes issue with your laundry, they are welcome to fold it for you while they make your dinner.”
Congratulations to the happy couple
