American-Canadian pop star Alanis Morisette has announced she is pregnant with her first child. The 36 year old singer and her rapper husband Mario ‘MC Souleye’ Treadway married in May of this year in a ceremony at their. Of course, Alanis is thrilled and tweeted: “Happy news… I’m pregnant We’re so excited to start our family” in her section on ’25 Things You Don’t Know About Me’. ‘I am pregnant’ was proudly announced as her final point – so maybe only her keenest fans got that far!
It has not yet been announced when the baby is due but it is good news for Alanis, who previously dated actor Ryan Reynolds, also told her fans of her marriage via Twitter.
“So happy to share with you that my man Souleye and I got married. We’re very excited to embark on this journey with each other,” she wrote after her wedding ceremony, which took place at the couple’s Los Angeles home. She has since been quoted as saying that marrying Mario was the smartest thing she ever did.
Apparently, the news came as a complete shock, according to the mum-to-be herself. Appearing on U.S. talk show Chelsea Lately she said: “I talked to my doctor and he basically said, ‘This looks like the screen of a pregnant lady’. And I said, ‘There’s still chance that I’m not though, yes?’ And he said, ‘About as likely as me getting a sex change.’ And I said, ‘So when are you getting your sex change?’
“I actually thought I wasn’t (pregnant). I just sort of in passing had said I was a little late. He said, ‘Is that normal?’ I said, ‘No that’s not typical for me’. He goes, ‘Let’s take a quick look’… I was very happy.”
It’s good when a celebrity marriage works out, isn’t it? Even in this short term! So – how will this baby affect Alanis’ music and career? Will the edge be knocked off the ‘Ironic’ singer? Will she be reluctant to tour? Or is the news something we should all just celebrate? And can she really have not known she was pregnant?!!
