The secret is out! After months of keeping the news under wraps, Grimes' baby was confirmed to be Elon Musk's. Up until now, the Canadian singer neither confirmed nor denied whether the baby is her boyfriend's, but in a new interview she opened up about the hot topic.
Back in January, Grimes took to her Instagram page to share the news with her 1.1 million Instagram followers that she’s expecting her first child. It was initially unclear whether or not the announcement was legitimate, or if it was just a part of the singer’s eccentric aesthetic.
The 31-year-old has been dating Tesla CEO and fellow Canadian Elon Musk for two years now according to Rolling Stone. Because their relationship is kept relatively lowkey, it’s been a hot topic of speculation whether or not Musk is the father of the unborn child.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the “Oblivion” singer finally confirmed that her boyfriend is, in fact, the father.
“She’s in the pristine kitchen of a hotel-bland guesthouse on one of the multiple Los Angeles properties owned by her boyfriend of two years, Tesla founder Elon Musk, who is, she confirms, the father of her child. She lives with him in another house, not visible from this one, somewhere nearby,” the article reads.
Despite her apparent morning sickness, Grimes has continued to make music, and even released her fifth studio album, Miss Anthropocene on February 21. She admitted to Rolling Stone that the album’s opener “So Heavy I Fell Through the Earth” is actually about getting pregnant.
“It was really profound to me when I decided I was going to do it. I’m just like, I have sacrificed my power in this moment. I have, like, capitulated, And I have spent my whole life avoiding that situation. I have never capitulated to anything, so it was just a profound commitment.”
Although she was hesitant to go through with the pregnancy, the singer told Rolling Stone that she did it because of her love for Musk.
“I do actually just really love my boyfriend,” Grimes explained. “So I was like, ‘You know, sure.’”
According to the Vancouver Sun, the Canadian couple will be welcoming their first child together into the world this May. Musk is already a father of five from his previous marriage to Justine Wilson.
