Ah, the joys of pregnancy. Singer Grimes is currently going through it, as she’s now 7 months along in her pregnancy. She and partner Elon Musk shocked everyone a few years back when they showed up to the Met Gala together, and things are obviously going very well for the pair. After initially announcing the pregnancy back in January, Grimes has now opened up about her plans for post-pregnancy life with her child, and how she and Elon Musk will raise the baby.
In an interview with The Face, Grimes gives fans a glimpse into her pregnancy. She revealed that she wants to create a “digital body” of herself, so she can still pursue her music career but be present with her child. She explains: “Having a digital body allows me to keep working throughout the later stages of my pregnancy, and after I have my baby, so I can spend more time with them. It’s hard for me to do photoshoots and fit into clothes at the moment, but WarNymph is here in your magazine promoting my album for me.”
Grimes also got candid about how much hate she gets on social media every day. “I hear about how ugly or stupid or annoying I am every day… It’s sort of like being in an emotionally abusive relationship after a while. It takes a toll,” she explains. Of course, Grimes has been more focused on her pregnancy and spending less time engaging with the haters. Nonetheless, she is in a very high-profile relationship with Elon Musk, so an onslaught of hate is bound to take its toll on anyone in that position.
As for her post-pregnancy life, Grimes admits that she’s a big raver, and would support her child being the same way. That being said, don’t expect Grimes to be raving with her baby anytime soon. “Children need to get into raving, but I don’t think I’ll rave with my kid… I don’t think kids and adults need to rave together,” she explained to the publication. “The baby has already been exposed to a lot of techno in the womb,” she added.
Because the baby’s father is Elon Musk, money is certainly not an issue for the couple. However, Grimes is very conscious of the situation, and doesn’t want her child to get too spoiled. Her solution? She’s going to periodically send the child to live in the woods to do “lots of physical labour in the cold and whatnot.” And there you have it!
