Alternative-rock singer Alanis Morissette posted a pregnancy photo on her Instagram account on June 29. It’s a photo of her naked, submerged in a pool, and Essential Baby says it shall evoke images of the Nirvana’s Nevermind album in the minds of her fans.
The 42-year-old singer is married to rapper Mario “Souleye” Treadway, and the couple welcomed their first baby, Ever Morissette-Treadway last December 2010. She announced via her social media last February that they were expecting a second child.
Alanis Morissette posted a music video last April of a song she made with Guy Sigsworth that was animated by Brendan Huza. She said the video “helped tell our story in moving pictures, bringing us up to this sweet moment.”
On her official website, she wrote together with her video, “May this song take on ever-deepening meaning as each year goes by.”
The image she posted on June 29 seems far away from one’s immediate impression of a rock star, in fact, the only likeness it may have with Nirvana’s Nevermind album cover is that it was shot in a pool.
Morissette, who released the album Jagged Little Pill, which alone made 33 million copies worldwide, looked so serene floating naked in the photograph. If there had to be a description of a song that the photograph recalled, it would have to be far from rock, which people adore her for.
The image portrayed her serenely during the fullness of her pregnancy. It was so peaceful it has to be a symphony.
She admits parenthood is not easy, but loves her role so much and is inclined with family values. She even left a note for her son that says, “You have to be extra gentle around ladies because they are the most helpful people in the world ’cause they make persons.”
When asked about her relationship with Ever, she said, “He’s amazing. He’s just coming into his own. We’re having real bona fide philosophical conversations. About anything – about aliens, about the galaxy, about what God is, about animals. You just cross your fingers behind your back and you hope you don’t blow it.”
Her uploaded photograph leaves her followers in awe.
