Singer Alanis Morissette reveals that she is prepared to breast-feed her son until he tells her he's ready to stop — even if that takes years.

The "Ironic" singer stopped by "Good Morning America" on Thursday to discuss her thoughts on attachment-parenting, being a mother to Ever, her 17-month-old son, and the appropriate time to stop breast-feeding a child.

"I'll stop whenever he wants," revealed Morissette, echoing one of the tenants of a controversial style of parenting known as "attachment-parenting."

"Some kids naturally stop at 2, some stop at a couple of years later, it's up to the child," she tells "GMA." "I will stop when he says it's time to stop."

The 37-year-old was also asked about the controversial Time magazine cover depicting a woman breast-feeding a child some considered far too old.

Morissette defended both the mother and the cover, saying, "I consider it appropriate; it is appropriate for that particular child and that particular family."
