Vegan singer Alanis Morrisette appeared smiley and incredibly content during her recent appearance on Chelsea Lately. Five months pregnant with her first child, the mom-to-be was pleasantly surprised when her doctor shared the good news, tweeting, “Yes, happy news….i’m pregnant :) we’re so excited to start our family…. xo a” to her followers.

Morrisette mentioned to Chelsea Handler that in addition to her impending motherhood, she’s been working on a spiritual and philosophical book that reflects “the truth of who we are” (which is innate goodness), asserting that “the whole journey is about removing any obstacle or false belief that keeps us from knowing that.” The singer, who will appear on the hit show Weeds later this August, told Handler that she believes she can help bring some “compassionate female energy” to the show.

Fans of the Reco Jeans entrepreneur might appreciate learning that she and her hubby Mario Treadway share a mutual appreciation for music as well as the green scene. If you keep an eye peeled on Treadway’s Twitter account, you can easily see that he “is quite the activist” who cares as much about saving endangered tigers as he does about supporting victims of environmental disasters. Sounds like these two sweeties are well matched — we wish them well in their exciting new journey together!
