She's a breeder now.


Ani (fucking) DiFranco has a daughter.
A friend in Flagstaff said her shows are all "sweet and mellow" now.
Not sure I believe that, but it bears testing.
Ani birthed her daughter at home on Jan 20, 07.
Child was due in Feb but came early.
Long delivery, 7lbs 8oz.
Ani is 37 years old and touring this fall with her daughter.
The father is her boyfriend Mike Napolitan.
The child's name is Petah Lucia.
Ani got married and divorced, too, while I wasn't paying attention.
In fact, this is the first time I have taken an interest in her life.
Because after years, her music is still with me.
She is a friend of mine.
We just haven't met yet.

I was searching for info on her and found this song---its a lovely recording, good sound, Ani looking simple, playing acoustic with a guy on standup bass.

Hard to tell from your first sentence, but I take it you still like her?

It really is amazing how having a kid changes peoples' perspectives. She'll be back to her "normal" self when the kid turns teen.

Or maybe "normal selves" don't exist; we just change through life perpetually, and having children is another natural change among many. As a parent, I can say with some certainty that she won't ever be the same, at least as long as she can actually feel love and affection for her children. Children are the most awesome, transformative experience I've ever had. I wouldn't go back to being the person I was for any reason. I'm much better (from my perspective) now.

I agree, that having children is a big lifechanger......and that "normal selves" are a work on progress, moving forward and perhaps circling, but never ever going back to the way we were before...

I tag her a "hero", so I do more than like her. I admire her. She rocks! The Ani FUCKING DiFranco thing is a joke, not created by her, but rather by fans who appreciate her rebellious spunk.
