Alanis Morissette's husband, Souleye, is a well-known recording artist in his own right.

Souleye (real name, Mario John Treadway) has been around in the music scene nearly as long as his wife, Alanis. He release his first hip-hop album, Soul Sessions, back in 2002. Following the release of his first album, Souleye has gone to drop 12 more full albums!

So, when did Souleye and Alanis become a match made in music heaven? According to Heavy, the couple first met in 2009 at a meditation gathering in California.

Alanis revealed to Oprah Winfrey (via the Huffington Post) that she knew after meeting Souleye that the hip-hop artist was her soulmate — "I would date people, and there would be something about me that would hit a brick wall with whomever I was sitting across from. And with Souleye, when I first met him, I could see that there was this limitlessness to where we could go."

What about Alanis's other two kids? Her only daughter (and Ever's younger sister) is named Onyx Solace Morissette-Treadway. Rounding out Alanis's and Souleye's brood is their youngest son, Winter Mercy Morissette-Treadway.

Apparently Onyx already has quite the personality! Alanis told People Magazine, "My daughter has taken to calling me by my full name because she notices that no one uses my full name when we're in personal environments," Morissette said. "So instead of saying 'mom,' she'll say, 'Alanis Morissette.'"
