Canadian singer announced her pregnancy in February

Alanis Morissette has posted a nude photo of herself sporting a large baby bump while floating underwater.

The Canadian singer quoted her five-year-old son Ever Imre in the caption on her Instagram account, which states “you have to be extra gentle around ladies because they are the most helpful people in the world ’cause they make persons.”

She previously announced in an animated video posted on social media in February, which you can watch below, that she was expecting a second child with rapper husband Mario Treadway, who goes by the stage name, ‘Souleye’. She married Treadway in 2010.

Earlier this year, the Canadian singer also announced that she had been hired by The Guardian newspaper, for a new advice column.

At the time she said: “I’m definitely a therapy girl. I think that’s quite obvious. I don’t want to say everyone should [have therapy], but do I think everyone might benefit from it? Yes. But I’m aware that a lot of people have great resistance to it.”

Morissette said her “therapist” style comes in part from her experience with her own family, adding: “Parents, brothers, even extended family members, that was the role I took on, because I suppose I had this combination of intuition and empathy. I cut my teeth, basically, listening for a living.”

She also wrote about marriage and parenting, adding: “Both marriage and becoming a parent have their way of growing us up. It is just about whether we kick and scream through the process (or, ultimately, run from it), or submit to it willingly and with a relatively open mind.

“The choice is yours, and yours alone. Without a deep personal commitment to growing and healing (alone and together with your partner), it is simply not possible to achieve a functional relationship.”
