Alanis Morissette's ethereally beautiful pregnancy photo

Any Gen Xer will have Nirvana's Nevermind album cover spring immediately to mind upon viewing Alanis Morissette's latest pregnancy photo.

It's a stunning portrait of late pregnancy that Canadian rocker Morissette posted on her Instagram account on June 29.

The image of her floating in the deep water of a pool, heavily pregnant with her second child, is accompanied by a touching quote from her 5 year old son Ever: "You have to be extra gentle around ladies because they are the most helpful people in the world 'cause they make persons."

The 42-year-old first announced her pregnancy in April, sharing an animated video and song that ends with the family looking at ultrasound images of the new baby. 

"The story of my nuclear family in moving pictures, brings us up to this sweet moment," the star captioned the video.
