Singer Alanis Morissette and her husband, Mario "Souleye" Treadway welcomed their first child on Christmas day. Mom and baby are said to be doing well, but you'll never guess what she named her baby ... Ever. Yes, Ever is the name the bestowed on the little musical man: Ever Imre Morissette-Treadway.
Hmmm. I wonder if it will be pronounced with a long "e" or like "happily ever after," and how much confusion that's going to cause him throughout his life. There's been no explanation as to how the couple chose the name, but in any case, it's great to hear that mother and baby are "happy and healthy."
I still have trouble accepting the fact that Alanis Morissette, the woman who was the background sound to all my dating woes and a comforting source that assured me it would be OK if ended up alone forever is married with a child. It's just so ... ironic I guess, to use one of her terms.
But even though her pregnancy was a surprise to her and to fans like me, there's no doubt she'll be a wonderful mom and embrace motherhood like she did her pregnancy. "Yes, happy news....i'm pregnant. We're so excited to start our family.... xo a." she tweeted after she found out she was pregnant."
And can you imagine the incredible lullabies little Ever is going to be sung?
No tweets yet about the birth, but hopefully those and some pictures will be forthcoming soon.
Congratulations to the family!
Do you find it surprising that Alanis Morissette is a mother? What do you think of the name Ever?
