Alanis Morissette has announced the safe arrival of her son, Winter Mercy. The Canadian hitmaker shared a sweet picture of the newborn with her Instagram followers on Monday, along with the caption "He's here. Winter Mercy Morissette-Treadway. #8/8/19 #mywholelifeidreamedoflovingyouthree." According to PEOPLE, Morissette's husband, Mario "Souleye" Treadway also shared the same image, paying homage to his wife
"@alanis You will forever be my heroine, thank you for your warrior strength and ability to so deeply love." The couple wed in 2010, before welcoming their first son, Ever Imre the same year. In 2016, Morissette gave birth to a girl, Onyx Solace. All three of their children were born at home. The "Jagged Little Pill" songstress is currently working on new music and revealed both of her new exploits in a March Instagram post. The candid black and white snap showed Alanis with a growing bump as she croons into a mic. "So much NEWness," read the caption. Fans are also looking forward to a Broadway show focused on the star's first hit 90s album which debuts this fall.
In a September 2017 interview, the star opened up about the struggles of pregnancy, admitting that she suffered from postpartum depression after having both of her children. Like many moms, Alanis said that the vision she had of pregnancy didn't quite match up to the reality, which sometimes left her "debilitated." Morissette decided to turn the experience into a positive one, using her platform to talk about PPD and make others aware. Most importantly, she wanted moms also suffering to know they weren't alone. It's not the first time that the 45-year-old has bared all in regards to her mental health. She previously revealed that she suffered from depression throughout her teen years and 20s, as well as various eating disorders.
Prior to getting her happily-ever-after, Morissette dated Hollywood A-lister Ryan Reynolds after meeting at a birthday party for Drew Barrymore in 2002. Although Ryan put a ring on it in June 2004, the two parted ways in 2007. The singer's album "Flavors of Entanglement" was written in response to the break-up, with Morissette labeling it a cathartic experience.
