Alanis Morissette welcomes baby boy Ever Imre Morissette-Treadway


Alanis Morissette gave birth to a literal Christmas baby! She delivered her healthy baby boy on Christmas Day, and she named him… Jesus? NO. She named him… Ever. Ever Imre Morissette-Treadway. The hyphenated last name is courtesy of Alanis’s husband, SoulEye, better known as Mario Treadway. As for “Ever” – God. I had a good wince, and then I flashed on something else – Milla Jovovich named her baby Ever too. Except Milla has a daughter. Is Ever a unisex name? Milla claimed that it was Scottish, which may be why Alanis chose it…? As far as “Imre” goes, I thought Alanis made it up, or that it was perhaps the name of a vampire in some young adult book, but it seems like it’s a real baby name. Shocking!

Alanis Morissette got a very special Christmas package: a new baby boy, PEOPLE has confirmed.

“Alanis Morissette and Mario ‘Souleye’ Treadway welcomed a baby boy, Ever Imre Morissette-Treadway, on Dec. 25th,” says a rep for the new mom. “All are healthy and happy.”

The prolific singer/songwriter, 36, announced her pregnancy in August. She and Treadway, 30, married on May 22 at their Los Angeles home.

Morissette admitted before the birth that the pregnancy had been a surprise, albeit a happy one.

She enjoyed one last send-off before motherhood commenced, and was seen beaming and showing off her bump at a baby shower in October.

Well, congratulations to the happy family. I’m glad Alanis had a healthy delivery, and I think it’s awesome that Alanis and SoulEye are so happy and settled. Do you think Ryan Reynolds winced a bit? Probably.

    Oh another Christmas baby welcome to the club kiddo. Yeah with the names of his parents he wasn’t going to be called Dave or John or anything.

  2. K-MAC says:

    congrats to the happy family! I am so excited for her! Yeah, Ryan Renolds is kicking himself right now….

  3. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Congratulations! Now you can spend a lifetime of combined Christmas/birthday gifts.

    Sorry kiddo.

  4. lisa says:

    I have a cousin named Ever Leigh..

    It is a family name. So I like it.

  5. MSat says:

    She really looked fantastic all the way through the pregnancy. She had that healthy glow all moms-to-be hope to have. Congrats, Alanis! How about a new CD of cool alternative lullabies for hipster babies?

  6. brin says:

    Congrats! What a great Christmas gift!
    There is an actress named Ever Carradine, but it works for a boys name, too.

  7. mel says:

    I luv that name. I wish her the best.

  8. Anette says:

    Imre is a Hungarian name for boys as her mum has Hungarian origins!
    The country is in Europe, you might need a map!!

  9. Angyal says:

    Imre is a common name in Hungary.

  10. JustBe says:

    I love that name. I kinda thought it was more for a girl, but I can see it being unisex.

  11. PrimeO says:

    To those of you who know that Imre is a common name in Hungary… how do you pronounce it? Like “I’m – er” ? “I’m – ray” ? “im-ray” ?

  12. jc126 says:

    Congrats to them, and Ever is a horrible name.

  13. Angyal says:

    Imre is pronounced Im-ra (the “ra” rhyming with “huh”).
    The stress is on the first syllable, which rhymes with “him” = usually, though some pronounce it closer to “eem”. (Regional variation.)

  14. Bodhi says:

    Imre is an unusual name in the States, no need to be rude to those of us who have never heard it before…

    Anyhoo… Congrats to the family!! I hope I look that good when I’m that gigantic. MSat is totally right, Alanis looked amazing throughout her whole pregnancy. I think some women are just born to have babies. Not that they are born ONLY to have babies, of course, but some women just light up all over when they are preggo

  15. lili says:

    god she is huge

  16. tiredofrumers says:

    cool name for a cool couple’s baby. way to go.

  17. Lynnie says:

    I’m diggin’ Imre. I worked with a guy named Imre and he was a doll. Good associations with the name… But Ever? Seriously? Not so much.

  18. Whatever says:

    Aw, so nice for them. As for Ryan, Alanis was the best thing he EVER had and she was always too cool for him. I bet he is kicking himself in the ass today. The name is cute, whatever they like is fine, I never understand why people care enough to have an opinion about a stranger’s baby. I don’t bash baby names or give an opinion because unless I gave birth to the baby, it’s none of my business.

  19. FatJennyfromBurgerBlock says:

    I love that Alanis found a man and had a baby, plus she looks happy. A big slap to the face of Ryan Reynolds and his failing hoo-ha marriage.

  20. Circe says:

    Ever is kind of stupid, but I’m digging Imre. Have been for a while, actually.

    Congrats to them!

  21. Kiska says:

    Cool name. I like that they chose something to honour ancestral roots.

  22. henriette says:

    She looks great and glowing and I love the fact she put on a ton of weight when knocked up and seemed fine with it. She is so much more talented and interesting than Scarjo; I hope RyRen is kicking himself.

  23. Rosanna says:

    What kind of name is it? Poor kid….

  24. di butler says:

    Well, I have always loved Alanis, but you do know she is a major pothead, right? She is also very, very weird. Not sure why Ryan R would be kicking himself over that….he dumped her.

  25. Jojo says:

    Its funny about her christmas baby, she played god in Kevin Smith’s film Dogma…very fitting. 🙂

  26. JenJen says:

    That doesn’t look like her at all in the 3rd picture. I cannot see her with Ryan at all, what an odd couple. Pretty sure he treated her like crap and she wrote songs about it, so he probably doesn’t care.

  27. KLO says:

    Imre is a common name in Estonia too. Another country in Europe. We have several similar names with the Hungarians, for example most of the names in the Underworld movies 😀 (which take place in Hungary)

  28. Isa says:

    I LOVE the name Ever.
    I wanted to name my daughter Everly and call her Ever for short. (with a common middle name in case she didn’t like it and wanted to go by something different.) A lot of people reacted badly to it and made me change my mind. A family member said that it reminded them of The Everly Brothers. Then when my daughter was born she looked more like the second name we had picked out.

    Ever is probably a unisex name. Anthony (can’t spell his last name) from the Red Hot Chili Peppers has a son named Everly Bear. That’s actually where I got the name. When my daughter was in her belly and we didn’t have a name picked out we called her Baby Bear.

    I think she looks better with bangs. Anyway, congratulations to her and her husband! What a fantastic Christmas present!

  29. Kat says:

    Congrats to them both. Love the name Ever.

  30. Debbi says:

    Imre must be family name – Alanis’s twin brother’s name is Wade Imre Morissette.

  31. GirlyGIrl says:

    That is a dumb-ass name man…

    kids gonna grow up pretty messed up, or a complete douche.

  32. PrettyTarheel says:

    Her husband has the BEST dimples. So cute! She has looked so fantastic through the pregnancy-perhaps the best I’ve ever seen her look. Perhaps because she put down the bong while pregnant, or perhaps the pre-natals really worked wonders, but her hair, her skin-all glowing.
    Baby naming is TOUGH. Finding a name that’s distinctive(IE Avery is out, since we have 3 friends with little girls named Avery), that matches your last name, that doesn’t have any horrible connotations for anyone in your immediate family, that flows with a nice middle name, and that has meaning is probably the hardest thing we’ve tried to do so far. Pregnancy has been a breeze, baby naming is war.

  33. Str8Shooter says:

    Maybe they can have a soon called After…LOL

  34. Imre Beke says:

    As someone who is named Imre, whose father is named Imre, whose grandfather and great-grandfather and great-great-grandfather were named Imre, whose son is named Imre, I can assure you, it is a very real name.

    St. Imre of Hungary was the Crown Prince, the son of Hungary’s first King – St. István (Stephen).

    Amerigo Vespucci’s father lived and worked in Hungary for many years before returning to Italy. He developed a devotion to St. Imre and named his son for him (Amerigo being the Italian translation of Imre). Thus, America derives its name indirectly from Imre.

    Krav Maga – the highly effective martial art used by the Israeli military – was developed by a gentleman named Imre Lichtenfeld.

    The English names Emery, Emory and Emeric are all translations of Imre, having been derived from the Latin translation “Emericus.”

    Hungarian sources state that the name means “strong” or “ruler.”

  35. Liz says:

    I think her twin brother’s middle name is Imre. Imre is Hungarian, and her mother is Hungarian.

  36. Mónika says:

    Imre is a hungarian boy-name. In Hungary is it very often.
