Sara Quin’s baby? Tegan and Sara Star share photo of “My #Crybaby”


Beloved lesbian pop duo Tegan and Sara recently released tour news and two singles from their forthcoming LP, crybaby. I’ve only listened to “Yellow” so far, but it’s pretty awesome! As my sweet heart is breaking, so be careful / my sweet heart sings like the devil. It’s all about how the bruises heal (from black to yellow) and we’ll still be kids one way or another, but maybe we won’t have to go through the same trauma over and over again . Their tour will begin this fall. It’s pretty amazing that they were able to create a whole new album and plan a whole gig during this pandemic. ESPECIALLY BECAUSE SARA QUIN HAD A BABY ALL THE TIME! Yeah, that’s right: Sara Quin just posted a picture of herself holding a tiny baby with the caption My #crybaby 🍦. It’s hers! Her personal baby!

I don’t know much about babies or motherhood, but from what I can tell this baby is perfect wearing corduroy lumberjack pants with feet in them and a soft gray henley. Very Canadian! There’s probably a little beaver on the front or the Tim Horton logo, and their little hockey stick is right next to the camera. I’m also convinced that this baby came out singing poignant synth-pop ballads and absolutely not crying, therefore. What else? I’ve never written about a baby before. The baby’s head is very soft, like goose dander. And they spat, I think, because there’s a towel over Sara’s shoulder. Which means they ate too! Which is good! Sweet, little buddy!

Sara Quin is also, of course, the famous mother of cats Holiday and Mickey, who once dressed up as Donnie Darko skeletons for Halloween and also each own at least one (1) Alexander McQueen costume. They didn’t like each other at first, a lot of whistles, but then they became best friends. Maybe if that new baby is very good and lucky, they can share the boxes and the holiday sunshine and Mickey’s!

Remember, baby: if it’s okay with you, you sit down (when you can hold your head up on your own)! Congratulations, Sara Quin and big siblings Holiday and Mickey!
