The Canadian singer, 33, born Claire Elise Boucher, revealed in a cover story for Vanity Fair’s April 2022 issue.
Parents For The Second Time Around
Grimes told the magazine that she and the Tesla founder welcomed a daughter in December 2021. The “Shinigami Eyes” songstress is also mom to 22-month-old son X Æ A-Xii, whom she also shares with Musk, 50.
As fans know, Grimes didn’t sport a baby bump last year. That said, she and Musk had the baby, whom they call Y, via surrogate.
Grimes & Musk Are Back Together
The couple called it quits in September after dating for three years, but they reconciled, as Grimes told Vanity Fair.
“There’s no real word for it,” she explained. “I would probably refer to him as my boyfriend, but we’re very fluid.”
Grimes also shared that she and Musk “live in separate houses” and that they are “best friends.”
She continued, “We see each other all the time…. We just have our own thing going on, and I don’t expect other people to understand it.”

As to whether they’re happy, Grimes said, “This is the best it’s ever been…. We just need to be free.”
She also said that she and the tech billionaire are looking into growing their family, saying, “We’ve always wanted at least three or four.”
What Caused The Split?
Musk, who started dating Grimes in 2018, got candid about their breakup in September 2021.
“Grimes and I are, I’d say, probably semi-separated,” he told TIME.
“We weren’t seeing each other that much, and I think this is to some degree a long-term thing, because what she needs to do is mostly in LA or touring, and my work is mostly in remote locations like this,” he said of his Space X headquarters in Texas.

When the news of their split broke, Grimes was being followed by the paparazzi, and she had enough. So the songwriter played a little prank on them.
Grimes dressed up in a brown intergalactic outfit with a matching hooded jacket and posed with Karl Marx’s “Communist Manifesto” in Los Angeles.
Her choice of the book confused onlookers, and the pictures started doing rounds on social media. She shared some of the snaps and wrote in the caption: “I was really stressed when paparazzi wouldn’t stop following me this wk but then I realized it was opportunity to troll. i swear this headline omg wtf haha im dead.”
The Struggles Of Dating The Richest Man In The World
In March 2019, Grimes opened up about the difficulties of dating Musk in an interview.
“I was simply unprepared,” she told Wall Street Journal of the level of scrutiny that came with dating him.
“I just thought I could keep going along in my funny little way, and then you casually respond to someone in a tweet and it’s on Fox News, and you’re like, ugh, you know? That was a very disturbing moment,” Grimes continued.
“And look, I love him, he’s great,” the singer added.
