Speaking previously about becoming a mother, Alanis told Biography: “I have discovered the virtues of coffee, truly. Coffee has become very helpful in that I’m sleeping a lot less. But motherhood is also all about integration for me.
“Previously, personal fulfillment was at home, and then I was on the road, living my vocation.
“Everything was really compartmentalised. Separate. There was this, and then there was that. Now everything is really integrated.
“I come into my room to do an interview, I go breastfeed, I talk to my husband, I go write a song.
“Everything’s blended together and, frankly, not a moment too soon. It’s always been a goal, this integration.”
