Alanis gave birth in late June and decided to make the announcement after a few weeks of intimate family time. 

Morissette shared a number of gorgeous underwater maternity shots a few weeks ago.

Although little did we know that she had already given birth when they went public. 


Onyx also has a five-year-old big brother Ever Imre Morissette-Treadway.

Alanis’s son obviously is mature beyond his years going by a quote that the 42-year-old singer shared with the maternity photo. 

“You have to be extra gentle around ladies because they are the most helpful people in the world ’cause they make persons,” he is quoted as saying. 

Meanwhile, Alanis has been open about her time as a mother and a wife – sharing her thoughts on both the happy and the trying times. 


In her recent column published in newspaper The Guardian, Morissette wrote a candid explanation. 

“Both marriage and becoming a parent have their way of growing us up,” she said.

“It is just about whether we kick and scream through the process (or, ultimately, run from it), or submit to it willingly and with a relatively open mind.

“The choice is yours, and yours alone. Without a deep personal commitment to growing and healing (alone and together with your partner), it is simply not possible to achieve a functional relationship.”
