After recently announcing that she's expecting a baby boy, Alanis Morissette decorated her belly with henna tattoos as part of a symbolic rite of pregnancy.
"Some rituals surprise in the heartwarming department," she posted along with a photo on Twitter of herself lying on her back surrounded by the arms of a few friends - the hands, wrists, and of course, the baby bump, all decorated with elaborate henna tattoos.
According to New York Daily News, the ritual is performed in some countries when a woman is in her seventh month of pregnancy.
We're not sure if this happened after or during her baby shower, but the warmth generated by this event is probably the best gift the singer could have received.
For any expectant moms looking to bring their friends closer, giving henna packs as baby shower favors could be the perfect way to suggest what you're thinking. If you're feeling more conventional, try creating a baby shower bingo or trivia game based on positive thoughts and memories you all share.
