Grimes and Elon Musk welcome first child together

Elon Musk has confirmed he has welcomed his first child with girlfriend Grimes.

The billionaire Tesla CEO, who is already a father of five, shared the joyful news early on Tuesday morning (5 May), announcing Grimes had just given birth.

‘Mum & baby all good,’ Elon told a follower.

It came just a few hours after a fan asked Elon, 48, if there was an update on the baby, prompting the businessman to reveal Grimes was in labour and the baby was just ‘a few hours away’.

Elon then announced they had welcomed a baby boy and said they were yet to settle on a name, adding: ‘We need the name we literally need it.’

Grimes, 32, had been keeping fans updated throughout her pregnancy and in February revealed she had suffered ‘complications’ and felt she was ‘woefully ill-prepared’ to have a baby.

Later that month, she told fans of her wish to allow the child to choose its own gender.

The musician had announced her pregnancy in January with a photo shoot on Instagram, which saw her standing topless with part of her stomach on show. It appeared to be a baby bump with the image of a foetus Photoshopped onto her stomach.

Grimes seemed to then confirm her baby news in response to a follower who complimented the photo.

The Oblivion singer said: ‘I thought about censoring them for a hot minute haha (this may get taken down anyway) but the photo is so much less feral without the nipples.

‘Plus being knocked up is a very feral & war-like state of being.’

The Canadian musician, real name Claire Boucher, went public with her romance with Musk back in May 2018 when they attended the Met Gala together.

It is Grimes’ first child but Musk is already a father to five children whom he shares with his ex-wife Justine Wilson. However, their first child died of sudden infant death syndrome.
