Elon Musk and Grimes
The pair were first linked in 2018. Following many ups and downs, Grimes announced that she was expecting her first child in January 2020 and welcomed their son, X AE A-XII, four months later.
In September 2021, the Tesla CEO opened up about the duo’s decision to redefine their relationship, saying, “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms. It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in L.A. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room.”
The songwriter later revealed the birth of her second child with Musk via surrogate. Their daughter Exa Dark Sideræl Musk — who they refer to as Y — arrived in December 2021.
“I don’t know what I was thinking,” she told Vanity Fair about not sharing the news earlier. “Whatever is going on with family stuff, I just feel like kids need to stay out of it, and X is just out there. I mean, I think E is really seeing him as a protégé and bringing him to everything and stuff.… X is out there. His situation is like that. But, yeah, I don’t know.”
That same day, Grimes confirmed that she and Musk had called it quits since the interview.Back to top
