Every parent tends to brag about their child, but Ani DiFranco believes she has something special in daughter Petah Lucia, 23 months — her baby makes others want children! Ani jokes that she considers her little girl to be a ‘trick baby.’

The 38-year-old singer/songwriter credits Petah and partner Mike Napolitano for helping her to create her latest album, Red Letter Year. “This record sounds better because I took a little time with it,” shared Ani during a recent interview. “I’ve got my baby and her daddy to thank for that.” Ani also credits seeing herself in Petah with helping her write the song Present/Infant.
