Alanis Morissette pregnant with third child at 44, flaunts baby bump in adorable picture
The 44-year-old singer is already a mother to one-year-old daughter Onyx and eight-year-old son Ever whom she had with her husband Mario Treadway
Alanis Morissette announced that she was pregnant with her third child on Monday. She took to social media to make the announcement along with a picture of her new baby bump where she seems to be five months along.
She shared the picture on her Instagram handle along with the caption, "So much NEWness..." The 44-year-old singer is already a mother to one-year-old daughter Onyx and eight-year-old son Ever whom she had with her husband Mario Treadway.
In the Instagram picture, Alanis is seen sporting a black turtleneck sweater which fitted around her baby bump nicely. She is seen singing into a microphone as she sports large headphones over her chopped hair.
The picture was taken in a living room in front of a white fireplace which featured a pyramid and two statues and had many candles around it and a painting of angels adorning the wall. Alanis' musical titled 'Jagged Little Pill', which had premiered in May 2018, will also be heading to Broadway this fall.
While having a child above the age of 40 is not unknown or unusual, there are some dangers linked to it. According to babycenter.com, "there is a risk of pregnancy complications, such as high blood pressure and gestational diabetes, which increases after 35 and continues to rise in your 40s."
As women get older, the chances of genetic conditions and problems also tend to become higher. Alanis and Mario tied the knot in 2010 at their home in Los Angeles.
In 2016, she revealed to biography.com that being a mother has changed her life in many unexpected ways and said, "My manager said to me at one point many years ago, “Your life’s going to change when your baby is born – but only forever." I have discovered the virtues of coffee, truly. Coffee has become very helpful in that I’m sleeping a lot less."
She added, "But motherhood is also all about integration for me. Previously, personal fulfillment was at home, and then I was on the road, living my vocation."
"Everything was really compartmentalized. Separate. There was this, and then there was that. Now everything is really integrated. I come into my room to do an interview, I go breastfeed, I talk to my husband, I go write a song. Everything’s blended together and, frankly, not a moment too soon. It’s always been a goal, this integration," she shared.
