Alanis Morissette has a new baby to sing about!

The Jagged Little Pill singer and rapper husband Mario “Souleye” Treadway welcomed their second child, a daughter, on Thursday, June 23, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

“She’s here! Onyx Solace Morissette-Treadway June 23 2016 ,” Morissette, 42, captioned a photo of her newborn baby girl nursing.

The couple, who are already parents to big brother Ever Imre, 5½, were married in 2010 at their home in Los Angeles. The new mom of two announced her pregnancy on her website in February, with a sweet video that ended with Ever gazing at the ultrasound photos.

“The story of my nuclear family in moving pictures, brings us up to this sweet moment,” the video’s caption included. Of the music used in the clip, Morissette added, “May this song take on ever-deepening meaning as each year goes by.”

If the way Morissette and Treadway, 36, have parented Ever is any indication, the new baby will be getting lots of loving attention.

“I breastfeed and I’ll be breastfeeding until my son is finished and he weans. I think it affords the child, when he grows up, to have a lot less therapy to go to,” she said in 2012 about then-16-month-old Ever.

“For me, I protect his safety and his well-being and his attachment,” she added. “That stage of development is a very important stage.”

Shortly after the new addition’s arrival, Morissette took to Instagram to share a nude snapshot of herself underwater.

“You have to be extra gentle around ladies because they are the most helpful people in the world ’cause they make persons,” read the caption, a quote by Ever.

Congrats on the baby but come on! Onyx???

I guess there is no end to this ridiculous trend of celebrities naming their kids after WHATEVER just to be unique and original…

fiona on

onyx? ummm, ok…….

nelle on

Love the name, Congrats on the beautiful baby!

Sidenote- Where in the world did Alanis come up with the theory that breastfeeding will make her son less likely to need therapy in the future?

Emily on

“when he grows up, to have a lot less therapy to go to,”
You really think your child would need therapy because you weaned him when it was time too? Come on, what a ridiculous statement. It’s ALL about you and YOUR need to keep breastfeeding!

sally on

name sounds “black” and dark/evil.
sorry, but a sweet baby girl deserves a better name than this one!!!

SAR on

Congratulations! Great that she has one of each. She obviously loves being a mom.

Cute! Not a fan or the name though!

Michelle on

Wow, her husband is very handsome. A baby is a blessing and it’s great to see someone so devoted and love being a mommy. Congrats to them both.

DaisyMoon on

I think she’s pretty much ensured they’ll need therapy naming them Ever & Onyx.

Cu on

Congrats but didn’t know she was pregnant..

JackBnimbal on

Do these people not realize that the child will be stuck with that name for the foreseeable future?

Why oh why???

To those who are criticizing the name, I agree it’s odd and not one I would have picked for a first name, but how many people really grow up thinking my name is the best? I never liked mine, Mary, I changed it a million times. Went by Robin my junior year of hs, felt so exotic, lol. I figure you choose a name that speaks to you as a parent and that you think will fit the baby, but don’t get stuck on one name. Take a few days after and make sure the name feels right. There’s a 50/50 chance the kid will hate it anyway.

And as for the breastfeeding comment I think she was referring to toddlers who still breastfeed, 3 and up. It did sound a touch judgy but not at all like she was saying it was wrong to breastfeed that long. I’m kind of with her, breastfeeding my 4 or even 6 year old gives me flashbacks to Game of Thrones and that woman breastfeeding her teenage son. But everyone has there own way of doing things.

Qz on

The name is unique but so strange.

Omaly on

It’s an odd, sounds awful name.

kim on

Ever and Onyx, no amount of breastfeeding will keep them from therapy with a name like that. LOL!

Onyx is a semiprecious variety of agate with different colors in layers. Not just black all colors!!!! The word onyx means fingernail from the lines in the gem! It’s not dark and evil but a gem named in the bible!!! I named my daughter Onyx and it Fits her beautifully!!!
