There's a lot to take in with this new Grimes Vanity Fair cover story. Most notably, Elon Musk and Grimes are now a family of four, having welcomed a brand new baby girl this past December.
In what appears to have been an incredibly bizarre exchange during the interview, the big baby reveal only came after the reporter heard wailing from an upstairs room. The singer had no choice but to go public having previously told the interviewer that her first child, X Æ A-XII, was away with Musk.

“She’s a little colicky, too,” Grimes explains, giving reason for the baby's tears.
So why did Grimes choose to keep the kid a secret? “I don’t know,” she admitted when probed. “I don’t know what I was thinking.”

Unable to avoid the topic much longer, Grimes shared that they had daughter Exa Dark Sideræl, “Y” for short, through a surrogate this winter when the on-again-off-again couple must've briefly gotten back together.
Musk and Grimes first split up back in September after three years together. In a statement, Musk said of the breakup at the time, “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms.” Grimes echoed these sentiments in an interview, saying, "We live in separate houses. We’re best friends. 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.”
But it looks like things have changed since that conversation came out. Grimes just recently replied under her own Twitter thread of her Vanity Fair cover story with news that they’ve broken up yet again.
"Me and E have broken up *again* since the writing of this article haha, but he’s my best friend and the love of my life, and my life and art are forever dedicated to The Mission now,” she wrote.
Safe to say the updated Facebook relationship status would read "It's Complicated," but who among us doesn't have their fair share of romantic troubles. Best wishes to Grimes and Musk on their new, very modern family.
