Alanis Animates Love Story to Deliver Special Announcement

Eat your heart out, Disney!

Alanis Morrisette Birth Announcement |

As far as birth announcements and Valentine's Day go, Alanis Morissette has killed two birds with one stone, so to speak.

The 41-year-old Canadian singer enlisted some help to produce an animated love story "on the sly" for her husband, rapper Mario Treadway.

"The story of my nuclear family in moving pictures, brings us up to this sweet moment," wrote Morissette on YouTube of the video entitled "Souleye + Ever + me + love = sweetness." She went on to share still on her Facebook and Instagram.

The video, accompanied by a song penned by Alanis over the course of just six hours, tells the tale of how she and Treadway got together back in 2010 - when their eyes reportedly locked across a crowded yoga studio. 

The cartoon charts the early days of their relationship, to their wedding, through to the birth of their son Ever, now five. There are precious touches all over the place, like a group hand painting session, that will make us all gush with nostalgia over our own families. 

But there was a little surprise up Alanis's creative sleeve, with the final reveal being the singer in a hospital bed looking up at an ultrasound of baby number two.

Like all good love stories, this one is super sweet and corny and magical, and makes me want to rush out and hire some artsy guru who can turn me and my family into cartoons stat

In the meantime, I guess I'll just have to settle for a pretty song and a fuzzy heart.
