Grimes and Elon Musk are having a baby

Canadian musician Grimes has announced that she and boyfriend Elon Musk are having a child.

Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, has been dating famous engineer and technology entrepreneur Elon Musk for a number of months now and took to social media to confirm her pregnancy.

“I thought about censoring them for a hot minute haha (this may get taken down anyway) but the photo is so much less feral without the nipples,” she said in a post. “Plus being knocked up is a very feral & war-like state of being. Might as well be what it is.”

She added: “Plus most of my friends told me not to post them so then I was afflicted w reverse psychology. Interrogated my shame on it and decide it was sum weird internalized self hatred to feel uncomfortable abt my body.”

Grimes originally posted the image, which shows her topless with a photoshopped child across her stomach, to Instagram before it was removed due to breaching the platform’s nudity rules.

The images have since been added to Twitter with an amended post on Instagram. Both of which can be seen below.
