This is shaping up to be a great year for Alanis Morissette . In May, the singer tied the knot with rapper Mario “Souleye” Treadway, and now the couple are expecting their first child, her rep confirmed to People.
The 36-year-old songstress took to Twitter to share her joy. “Yes, happy news….i’m pregnant :) we’re so excited to start our family…. xo a,” she tweeted on Wednesday (August 11). The baby’s due date is unknown.
Fans should be used to the singer sharing her big news over the Internet. Just four months ago, she told fans about her marriage to the fellow musician on Facebook. “Hi guys! So happy to share with you that my man Souleye and I got married. We’re very excited to embark on this journey with each other….sending love…connect soon xo — Alanis,” she wrote.
But she hasn’t always been keen on letting her inner romantic out. Morrisette revealed back in 2004 that it was her then-fiancé Ryan Reynolds who helped her prepare for love. “I’m ready to commit to someone and ready to do the work. And I’m ready to allow that part of myself to come out,” she said. “I think for a long time, because of my compulsively wanting to be viewed as an überfeminist, I would really stay away from things like being a hopeless romantic, being dependent on a man, or even wanting to be with a man, frankly.”
And while the news of Morisette’s pregnancy might push back any music projects she may have on her plate, the Canadian singer did release a new song, “I Remain,” earlier this year. It served as the theme song for adventure film “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.”
