Alanis Morissette is pregnant with her third child
The 44-year-old Canadian You Oughta Know hitmaker – who is already a mother to Onyx Solace, two, and Ever Imre, eight – has announced the exciting news about her growing family on Instagram.
Captioning a picture of herself in the studio, with her baby bump clearly on display underneath her black dress, she wrote alongside heart and praying emojis: “so much NEWness… (sic)”
Alanis, who has given birth to her two children at home, previously likened the birth of her youngest child to the 1970s horror movie, Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
“It’s pretty gnarly, but it’s not meant to be all clean and perfect. We are animals. It’s like an 18-wheeler careening through your whole body. It’s beyond pain. I have a high tolerance for pain … this trumped all …,” she told People.
“Souleye caught Onyx. He was coaching me and I was coaching him. [The midwife] came and we were, all three of us, just kind of stunned. But I’d seen so many videos of women giving birth in water with dolphins and fields. I knew that the babies, when there’s a low-risk birth, come out in whatever way they come out.
She said she was in labour for an hour and Onyx ‘flew out’. However she was left ‘crawling about’ for weeks after because every time she went to stand up she would ‘pass out’.
The star has also previously spoken about postpartum depression, telling the Guardian that it’s one of her biggest disappointments.
“The first time, I waited ages to address it because, typically, I warrior through things. I asked a doctor, “Does it get better if I just stick it out?” and she said, “No, it gets worse.” I did it all: therapy, medication and exercise. I wanted to live,” she said.
Alanis Morissette burst onto the music scene when she was just 16-years-old.
In 1995 she won a Grammy award for her Jagged Little Pill album, which features hit songs such as Ironic and You Outta Know.
