LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Alanis Morissette, who gave birth to her first child in 2010, is a fan of the parenting style that is making headlines and magazine covers.
“I’m an attachment parent,” the singer/actress, who has a 16-month-old son, Ever, with rapper husband Mario “Souleye” Treadway, said on “The Billy Bush Show.”
“I breastfeed and I’ll be breastfeeding until my son is finished and he weans,” the 37-year-old mom explained.
“I think it affords the child, when he grows up, to have a lot less therapy to go to,” she continued. “For me, I protect his safety and his well-being and his attachment. That stage of development is a very important stage.”
Alanis also shared with Billy that they let their son share their bed.
“We’re definitely skin-on-skin connected as much as possible,” she said.
But having little Ever sleep in their bed, doesn’t stop Alanis and her husband from getting their own quality intimate time.
“He’s a very robust virile man,” Alanis said with a laugh. “You gotta take care of your husband.”
