Semi-Exclusive... Alanis Morissette & Family Enjoying A Day On The Beach In Hawaii

Alanis Morissette dove into the practice of attachment parenting when she welcomed son Ever via drug-free childbirth at home after a 26-hour labor in December 2010, and has been touting the practice ever since. Attachment parenting involves "baby wearing" -- carrying a baby or putting him or her in a sling across your body (never a stroller) as much as possible -- as well as "co-sleeping." "I personally believe that the attachment stage, done well, can circumvent countless addictions later in life because many of these addictions are often a temporary attempt at feeling this sense of connection. If a child's needs during this stage of development are not met, he or she will be staving off a haunting sense of cellular disconnection and loneliness for a lifetime," Morrisette wrote in a piece on Huffington Post in June 2012. "They will not have effectively internalized a loving nurturance as their own love-style." Fortunately, it sounds like the co-sleeping part of the deal hasn't interfered with Morissette and rapper hubby rapper Mario "MC Souleye" Treadway's  love life. When asked on "Chelsea Lately" last year when the couple gets to have sex, the songstress replied with, "All the time. When don't we have sex?"
