You should know! Alanis Morissettes Daughter Onyx may only be 6 years old, but she’s mature beyond her years — she’s even decided to address the singer by her full name.
“My daughter has started calling me by my full name because she realizes that nobody uses my full name when we’re in an intimate setting,” Morissette, 48, said during Audacy’s “Gary Bryan Morning” dated episode Thursday October 20 Show.” “So instead of saying ‘Mama’, she says ‘Alanis Morissette’.”
The “Ironic” singer, who shares three children – sons Ever Imre, 11, and Winter Mercy, 3, and daughter Onyx – with her husband Mario “Souleye” TreadwayShe didn’t reveal whether her other little ones have adopted the hilarious trait, but did reveal that all three kids are big fans of her music.
“They do [listen], even if I’m like, ‘Turn that off!'” joked Morissette. “You are so cute.”
Born in Canada, she is known for her unique parenting methods. In May 2020, the American Music Award winner opened up about the decision to homeschool her children through “unschooling,” which she described as “kid-led education.”
“So if there’s an agenda like, ‘Let’s play with these magnet tiles,’ and my daughter says, ‘F-k these tiles. I want to put glitter on that thing and cut down the tree. ‘Boom — we’re going to do that,'” she told Health magazine at the time. “I’m basically going in their eyeballs. I’m constantly watching her eyes and what she’s attracted to, and then we dive deep.”
Morissette and Treadway, 42, admit “unschooling” requires 24/7 study and even set up their home to help their kids study. “My husband and I make pods all over the house – here is the spelling area and here are the fake animals. There’s probably a better definition of un-schooling, but there’s no such thing as rigidity,” she shared at the time.
The songwriter, who has opened up about her struggles with postpartum depression over the years, also said she doesn’t shy away from talking to her kids about mental health. “We talk about therapy all the time,” she explained. “And with feelings, it’s a big thing for me to let them feel all the way through. I want to make them feel like they’re not alone, that I’m right here and they can feel it through and through.”
In August 2021, the “Jagged Little Pill” artist told Today that her PPD got “progressively worse” after each birth, noting that it only came out on the “other side” because of things like therapy and medication.
“I was very ashamed of being medicated,” he said. “But it kept me alive and I have no regrets. If it is necessary, just do it.”
