Singer Alanis Morissette revealed on Friday that she had given birth to a baby girl and the name she bestowed upon the newborn is quite unusual.

The Canadian singer took to Twitter on Friday to announce her special news and delighted fans by posting an adorable photo of her breastfeeding her baby girl.

"She's here!" the 42-year-old captioned the photo, before revealing the name she had chosen for the newest addition to the family: Onyx Solace Morissette-Treadway.

Morissette and her rapper husband Mario “Souleye” Treadway had announced their pregnancy in February of this year in an animated video celebrating their relationship.

They kept the due date private to the public, although the singer had shared a Nirvana-inspired image of herself naked and submerged in a swimming pool with Onyx in the womb (or in utero if we apply the Nirvana theme).

Morissette and Souleye already have a 5-year-old son, Ever Imre, who offered a sweet bit of wisdom for his baby sister in the Instagram post.

“You have to be extra gentle around ladies because they are the most helpful people in the world 'cause they make persons,” he said.

In a recent column for The Guardian, Morissette wrote, "Both marriage and becoming a parent have their way of growing us up. It is just about whether we kick and scream through the process (or, ultimately, run from it), or submit to it willingly and with a relatively open mind.

"The choice is yours, and yours alone. Without a deep personal commitment to growing and healing (alone and together with your partner), it is simply not possible to achieve a functional relationship."
