Grimes and Elon Musk Had a Secret Baby

It is hard to predict the behavior of someone who literally sold her soul as performance art, but this news still came as a shock to me

Grimes and Elon Musk had a baby at the end of 2021. What? Weren’t they recently semi-separated?

Apparently, they are now co-parenting a second child named Exa Dark Sideræl— Y for short — who was born via surrogate in December

According to Grimes, Y was supposed to stay a secret but had an ill-timed tantrum during the singer’s recent interview with Vanity Fair

After the piece came out on Thursday, she tweeted that she did not intend for the reporter to find out about her daughter and asked that people respect her child’s privacy, writing, “I’d love her to be able to live as private of a life as possible

Still, Grimes took the opportunity to speak at length about the origin of the name Exa Dark Sideræl, which involves dark matter, the number one quintillion, and elve

Never did I think these two would devise a more confusing name than X Æ A-Xii, but they are full of surprise

Speaking of: it sounds like Grimes and Musk were briefly, sort of, back together
