Despite the split of her former music group the Distillers in 2006, the future for singer Brody Dalle is looking bright; Not only has she started a new group with a few of her ex-bandmates called Spinnerette, but she is also mom to 1 ½-year-old Camille Harley Joan. Although Brody admits that in the past she often felt “like I was flailing about, like I couldn’t keep it together,” motherhood has “finally grounded” the 29-year-old singer as she has found her purpose in life and now has “something beautiful to live for.”

With two musically inclined parents, it is no surprise to Brody that Camille — who is “a really intense kid” — has managed to acquire an ear for music as well. In fact, the toddler is already composing her own music, shares Brody, who goes on to reveal that Camille’s first word was “octopus. If that isn’t a picture of things to come, I don’t know [what is].” Proud mama Brody shares, “We bought her a drum kit. She wrote her first song the Christmas before she turned two called ‘Star Star Star.’ We recorded that. She likes to sing at the studio.”

Camille is Brody’s daughter with her husband, Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme.
