Introducing Petah Lucia DiFranco Napolitano

Songstress Ani DiFranco, 36, introduced her daughter Petah Lucia, now 5 months, on her website last Friday. Ani shares that although the photos are a few months old,

We could have tried to hold out for a Suri–style Vanity Faircover story, but we just couldn’t wait to share this cute little face. Enjoy!

Included are photos of Ani nursing her daughter and Petah alone. There’s a third photo in the extended post. Petah was born at home to Ani and music producer Mike Napolitano on January 20th, in Buffalo, NY.

I love Ani & am sooo glad that she decided to share pictures of this little darling… such a cute baby…

I’m really happy for Ani & I am sure she is and is going to continue to be an awesome mummy. 😀

Aww, she’s cute! And I can’t get over those furry Ugg-like boots she has on in the one photo. Those things make me laugh!

What a cutie! I love the overgrown weeds in the patio! It’s nice to see that not everyone has perfectly manicured lawns and patios. She’s so down to earth anyway and looks so content 🙂 Many best wishes for them!

sounds like they are a really normal, down to earth family…no glitz and glamor, just thrilled to be parents!
Brilliant Post, adorable family !

not trying to be a jerk, but there is no way Vanity Fair would have offered her the cover no matter how long she held out. And for the record she held out longer than TomKat

CBB note: Ani was joking. We thought that was obvious? Maybe not!

Did I read home birth!? THAT IS SO AWESOME!! Good for her!!!

Congratulations to the family, their daughter is beautiful!!

CBB note: Yes, you can click the pink writing (link) for her original birth announcement, which has a little more info.

Not to be mean, but who is this lady? I have never seen her or heard of her…cute baby though!

CBB note: A popular folk singer-songwriter. If you google her you should get a lot!

I don’t know who she is but I love the fluffy socks, so cute! Like the garden pic too, they look like a laidback family 🙂

This is one of the luckiest babies in the world, born to a parent who is really going to raise her in the most wonderful way. I love her name (my daughter is also named Lucia pronounced loo-sha), I wonder how she pronounces it. I also love the “Yo my booties”.

Congrats to Ani. Not that this would stop anyone from having children, but I thought she was gay or bi.

Congrats Ani! That baby is sooo lucky, way way luckier than having lame tom kat for parents,this kid will actually have a chance at seeing what life is really about so, rock on Ani! And for those of you who dont know who Ani is, theres a reason why youve never heard of her. shes not a pretentious fake self absorbed hollywierd idiot like victoria beckham or katie lameo oops.. i ment katie homo.. oops i ment katie holmes.

Does anyone know where I could find those cute furry Uggs?

jenny on

What a beautiful momma & daughter! You can be sure Ani’s gonna raise Petah in the child’s best interests. No dumb superficial expectations here! I’m a little puzzled by a previous post- Yes Ani is bi but that doesn’t mean anything more than, as Ani puts it, “I have no criteria for sex or race. I just wanna hear you voice, just wanna see your face.” ( In or Out,1995)
