Alanis Morissette is pregnant

Singer Alanis Morissette dropped a bombshell when she filled out the "25 Things You Don't Know About Me" column for Us Weekly's current issue.

Besides using it to reveal her fear of moths and her mastery of chocolate-chip banana bread, the newlywed took it as an opportunity to announce that she's expecting.

"I am pregnant!" Morissette, 36, said in the No. 25 spot.

The Canadian singer, who married 30-year-old rapper Mario Souleye Treadway in May, might be keeping mum about when her bundle of joy will arrive, but that isn't stopping her from gushing about her baby love.

She tweeted Wednesday, "yes, happy news....i'm pregnant 🙂 we're so excited to start our family.... xo."

    Congrats to Alanis. I'm very happy for her.

    Seriously, CNN. You couldn't find a better picture of her?

    It is disheartening that with all Alanis has to teach by way of one finding oneself in God and being able to expose the flesh for all its scintillating sensation and ability to lead one to sin and imbalance all the great minds on this blog seem to focus on are the external and extemporaneous and amorphous.

    Just googled Mario Souleye Treadway. Doesn't look like a rapper. White, preppy, GQ. Bio says he's an activist. I'm sure for left-wing causes. They'll probably be happy together.

    Looks like someone set her face on fire and put it out with a wet chain. Poor lil' one is going to be cursed with that horse face.

    Woww!!!! some just love to critizice, and not constructively, she's beautiful (inside & out), intelligent, strong, talented, spirited, generous and a long train of etc's. Thing is, she's comfortable in her own skin, and a lot of people don't accept a celebrity who's not flawless....Don't mind any of them, ROCK ON ALANIS, and receive congratulations and much love from Mexico 😀

    Wow, people who comment here are so mean! I'm so happy for her family. She's a talented singer and musician and I like her. She could use a little help with her make-up and hair, but I don't think she's ugly at all. She's just not good at hiding her flaws like most other celebrities do. Maybe she's just a natural person who doesn't feel that she has to spend thousands of dollars on plastic surgery, etc. to make herself look the way everyone in the entertainment world thinks she should look. She's herself and since I don't look at her while I'm listening to her music, I really don't care what she looks like.

    I have watched her, listened to her, and have grown with her spiritually, emotionally, and psychologically since JAGGED. She has put word to the thoughts in my head, voice to the feelings of my heart,and emphasis to random so-called indignation I have suffered both by my own hands and those of society. Alanis will give this child very close to what GOD intended for it to have and experience while it is on this earth. Alanis will teach the child salvation thru Jesus Christ, our savior.

    She must be working on a motherhood album.

    Why do people care if she gives the kid a "f'ed up name"? If she does, then you get to roll your eyes and mock the parent and child. That's what you want, right?

    B-Dog, to my understanding, is a nick know not a REAL name...
    B-Dog is many celebs giving such strange names to their kids...why? What happened to good old Jim, David, Mary, Jane...?

      I'm not so sure about the "talented" part, either–unless you're into whining.

    They must be head over feet about this. She must be off that jagged little pill now. What's the matter, Mary Jane? Nothing, we pregnant!

    I hope this doesn't leave me uninvited to the baby shower. I'll be over here with one hand in my pocket, and the other one waving a rattle.

      None of that would have happened if she went down on him in a theater instead.
