Ani DiFranco considers daughter Petah "a breath of fresh air"

Singer/songwriter Ani DiFranco never planned on being in a relationship, having a daughter and touring all at the same time, but the 37-year-old is taking it all in stride.

Well, I don’t know. We’ve been hammering out my schedule for whatever, the next six months of my life, and the panic just began setting in. It’s been pretty smooth sailing, and now it’s occurred to me that I’m supposed to tour and make records and be a parent.

I don’t know what just happened, but it’s pretty cool, you know … The baby comes on tour with me, and it ups the ante for sure, because you have your occasional sleepless night, and that makes it more sporting to put on shows. But it’s also really fun. She’s a breath of fresh air in the whole scenario.

Ani and her boyfriend, music producer Mike Napolitan, welcomed daughter Petah Lucia 13 months ago.

Great post, thanks for it! To answer the first commenter, Ani says the best label for her is bisexual or queer but she doesn’t like labels. It’s thrilling that she’s a mom now!
