Alanis Morissette welcomes baby girl
Alanis Morissette has given birth to a baby girl.
The 'You Oughta Know' hitmaker took to Instagram to reveal her and her husband Mario "Souleye" Treadway welcomed their second child, Onyx Solance, into the world last month.

The happy couple - who already have five-year-old son Ever Imre together - announced they were expecting their second child earlier this year with a sweet song and an animated video, which ended with the trio looking at an ultrasound picture.
Captioning the video on her website, the 42-year-old singer wrote: "The story of my nuclear family in moving pictures, brings us up to this sweet moment. [The song was] written, recorded and produced in 6 hours on May 22, 2010 with Guy Sigsworth, on the sly, to surprise Souleye. Brendan Huza helped tell our story. May this song take on ever-deepening meaning as each year goes by. (sic)"
Meanwhile, in her spare time, Alanis is currently working on a book that is half memoir and half "reflections, insights, regrets, and just straight-up teaching".
She shared: "I've always had a little of a blind spot around how I am perceived. But there's uniformity now. This may be a crass way of understanding it, but there's something about even looking at my own Instagram, looking at my blog, where I'm getting a sense of self that I never had."
And Alanis feels her priorities have changed since becoming a mother.
Opening up about how she felt when she started in the entertainment industry, she added: "All due respect to the geniuses that were around me, I felt like a bit of an outsider. I tried really hard to fit in and belong and have BFFs that were famous. It could have had something to do with the time period. It wasn't 2016; it was the '90s and early 2000s. It was a different time for women in music. I would awkwardly phone different celebrities to see if we could be friends. And a lot of times I would be met with, 'Why are you calling me?' I guess people don't call people just to become friends with them."
