Grimes and billionaire Elon Musk called it quit after 3 years of dating in September, but her recent Instagram post has people believing she is pregnant with their second child. But, it’s not just a little bloating or loose clothing, it’s a photo she posted to social media where she is either really pregnant or wearing a fake belly. She tagged a photographer and designer in the post, so it could, of course, be for an upcoming music video, but fans are convinced she’s pregnant in the comments. “She’s carrying🗡,” one fan wrote in the comments. Another added, “the queen is pregnant😳👑.”
While the possibility of it being a photoshoot is possible, on December 15th, the singer posted a picture with the caption, “The uncanny valley is now shallow,” and, in the pic, you can see what looks like a bump peeking out of her shirt.
Musk has 7 children including X Æ A-Xii whom he shares with Grimes. The singer and the Tesla “self-made” billionaire announced their split in September and Musk attributed the break-up to their professional lifestyles. “We are semi-separate but still love each other, see each other frequently, and are on great terms,” he told Page Six. “It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room,” he said at the time.

Grimes has made it loud and clear that she’s not a fan of celebrity culture nor the music industry, both of which she belongs to.
“Celebrity culture is suffocating a f. I’m not quitting music, but def changing my main day job after BOOK 1,” she wrote on Twitter Tuesday (Dec. 28). “Music industry feels old and tired, reliant on archaic systems.”
Grimes has recently been teasing BOOK 1, which sounds like it could be her upcoming sixth studio album. She said her latest music video for “Player of Games” was “Chapter 1 of Book 1” in the YouTube clip‘s description. The experimental pop singer last released an album, Miss Anthropocene, on Feb. 21, 2020. The set spent two weeks on the Billboard 200 chart, where it peaked at No. 32.
Issa Rae, whose award-winning HBO series Insecure recently ended its five season run on Sunday, echoed Grimes’ statement about the “archaic” music industry in a now-viral interview with the Los Angeles Times. “It’s probably the worst industry that I have ever come across,” she said. “I thought Hollywood was crazy. The music industry, it needs to start over. Conflicts of interest abound. Archaic mentalities. Crooks and criminals! It’s an abusive industry, and I really feel for artists that have to come up in it.”
When fans posed alternative day jobs for Grimes to consider, she shut down a suggestion to become a Twitch streamer. “I wasn’t gna become a twitch steamer cuz I think public speaking is my weakness,” Grimes responded to one Twitter user. But starting a podcast might be on the table. She responded to another follower, “Maybe we need to introduce the concept of homo techno.”
