Is Grimes pregnant?

Grimes and Elon Musk are expecting their first child together… we think. The '4ÆM' singer seemingly just announced her pregnancy on Instagram and, honestly, we're shook.

Grimes – who has been dating Elon since 2018, going red carpet official at the Met Gala – revealed her baby bump in a photo from her sci-fi inspired shoot with Eli Russell Linnetz. Of course, it wasn't about to be your traditional maternity shoot. In the image, a topless Grimes is seen with her baby bump on display. Ok, all normal-ish so far. But her stomach had an image of a fetus edited onto it, complete with all the inner parts of the anatomy.

Grimes, born Claire Boucher, appeared to confirm she is expecting in the comment section while in conversation with a fan. "I thought about censoring them for a hot minute [her nipples] haha (this may get taken down anyway) but the photo is so much less feral without the nipples," she replied. "Plus being knocked up is a very feral & war-like state of being."

Instagram has actually taken the original photo down now for breaching their strict rules on nudity. But a more Insta-friendly version with Grimes' nipples strategically covered by her braids still remains. "Censored for insta haha – almost got away w it [sic]," she wrote in the caption.

Elon also addressed the speculation surrounding the pregnancy (kind of), sharing a screenshot of a news headline announcing the baby news. He kept everyone guessing by not adding a caption.

If Grimes is pregnant this will be the first child for her, but it'll be Elon's sixth. The billionaire Tesla founder shares five children with his ex-wife Justine Wilson, who he divorced in 2008.
