Grimes Gives Birth to First Child With Elon Musk

Photo does not have a caption

Grimes is officially a mom!

The 31-year-old singer gave birth to her first child on Monday, Elon Musk announced Twitter. "Mom & baby all good," he tweeted on Monday evening, just four hours after declaring Grimes was just "a few hours away" from giving birth. 

Musk later confirmed in a following tweet that he and Grimes had welcomed a baby boy.

Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, has been dating 48-year-old Musk since 2018. She announced she was pregnant in January, when she posted a topless photo of herself on Instagram with a baby bump. Musk is already a father to five children with his first wife, the Canadian author Justine Wilson.

"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 wrote in a comment to a fan about the NSFW picture. "Plus being knocked up is a very feral & war-like state of being. Might as well be what it is."

Later that month, she opened up about feeling ill-prepared for pregnancy and experiencing complications.

"How do y'all cope with working and having a baby??" she wrote on Instagram, before apologizing for not promoting her album, Miss Anthropocene, enough. "This whole thing has been a bit of an ordeal. Had some complications early on, a decent second trimester but starting to hurt everywhere at 25 wksz."

"[I'm] also way more emo and less capable of bravery in the face of haters online and stuff haha," she continued. "But my albums out in a sec so I prob need to get back on here. Don’t mind my emo energy, but curious what other ppls experience was like??? I didn't even google it, I was just like sure y not hahaha smh."
