There’s a lot of “NEWness” in Alanis Morissette’s life with both a new baby and new music on the way. The singer revealed in an Instagram post Monday that she’s expecting her third child. She shared a photo of herself clearly sporting a baby bump and singing into recording equipment.


The Canadian mom of two captioned the post, “so much NEWness…” with multiple heart and prayer hands emojis. Morissette, 44, married her husband Souleye (born Mario Treadway), 38, in 2010 and the couple already share eight-year-old son, Ever Imre, and two-year-old daughter, Onyx Solace.

In recent years, Morissette has been very vocal about her struggles with postpartum depression and has worked to eliminate the stigma of talking about the mental condition that affects 7.5 percent of postpartum women in Canada. The singer opened up about her experiences with “debilitating” depression after both the births of her son and daughter.

In a People magazine interview in 2017, she described seeking treatment for depression after her son was born and the instant onset of the condition after her daughter’s birth. She said the second time, the depression was “four times worse” and she was still suffering symptoms 14 months after Onyx was born.

“There are days I’m debilitated to the point where I can barely move,” she said. “As a kid, I imagined having children and being with an amazing partner. This is a whole other wrench I didn’t anticipate.”

She added that she hopes speaking out about her experience can help other women going through the same thing.

“The stigma remains in a really big way,” Morissette said. “There’s this version of eye contact that I have with women who have been through postpartum depression where it’s this silent, ‘Oh my God, I love you. I’m so sorry.'”

Alanis was prepared the second time around to combat and treat her depression and even while she was in it, she was optimistic about getting back to her old self.

“There are people who are like, ‘Where’s the old Alanis?’ and I just think, ‘Well, she’s in here. She’s having a minute,” she said at the time. “I just know that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and try not to beat myself up.”

We hope she’s taking that positive attitude into this pregnancy. Congrats, Alanis and fam!
