In a candid revelation, Grimes, the 35-year-old artist, shares a personal experience involving her former partner, Elon Musk, 52, in a new biography.
An Unexpected Photo
According to an excerpt from the biography published by People, Grimes disclosed that during the birth of their son, X Æ A-Xii, 3, Elon took a photo of her during a C-section procedure.
This image was then sent to their family and friends, including her father and brothers. Grimes confided, “He was just clueless about why I’d be upset,” as reported by People.
Grimes, whose real name is Claire Elise Boucher, welcomed her son X in 2020, and the following year, she and Elon embraced their daughter Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, affectionately known as Y, through a surrogate. In the biography, it was revealed that the couple secretly welcomed a third child, a son named Techno “Tau” Mechanicus.
Confirmation of a Third Child
Grimes confirmed the arrival of their third child with Elon in a tweet on September 10. In her message, she expressed her desire to shield her children from the public eye, requesting respect for their privacy at this time. Elon subsequently confirmed the news with his tweet on September 9.
The Canadian singer and SpaceX founder’s romantic journey spanned from 2018 to 2022. While they faced breakup rumors in 2019, they announced their pregnancy, solidifying their relationship. After welcoming their second child in late 2021, Grimes confirmed their separation on Twitter in March 2022, emphasizing her continued friendship and love for Elon.
Elon shares his children with Grimes and has seven other living children from previous relationships. Co-parenting is a significant aspect of their lives.
Grimes discussed the challenges and joys of raising her children with Elon in an interview with Wired in August. She expressed her commitment to building a family culture with the billionaire, where their son X is already showing an interest in rockets, influenced by his father’s passion.
