When tech entrepreneur Elon Musk stepped out on the red carpet for the 2018 Met Gala with Canadian singer Claire Boucher aka Grimes, the internet went wild over the odd pairing. In spite of the haters, the two continued with their relationship and Grimes even defended him in interviews, saying he's "great" and they were in love.
On Jan. 8, Grimes posted an Instagram that hinted at her pregnancy. While she hasn't stepped out with Elon publicly in a while, she's not known to be in any other public relationship. If the pair is expecting, this wouldn't be Elon's first try at parenthood.
Does Elon Musk have kids? Read on to find out about Grimes' baby announcement, and Elon's past marriage.
Does Elon Musk have kids?
If Grimes is, in fact, expecting a baby with the billionaire founder of Tesla, it certainly wouldn't be his first go at fatherhood. Elon was married to Canadian author Justine Wilson from 2000 to 2008, before his extreme success really began.
The couple welcomed their first child, Nevada, together in 2002. Tragically, Nevada passed away from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in 2002 at just 10 weeks old.
The couple then decided to go through IVF to grow their family. Justine gave birth to twin boys Griffin and Xavier two years after Nevada's death.
Two years after that, the couple had triplets sons Saxon, Kai, and Damian.
The couple announced their divorce in 2008, and Justine went on to refer to herself as Elon's "starter wife." She alleged that he treated her poorly, and that he often demeaned her.
Though Elon did not have more children, he married British actress Talullah Riley in 2010, who he started dating shortly after his divorce from Justine.
The couple first split in 2012, but they remarried one another a year later. They split again in 2014, but later reconciled. They ended their marriage for good in 2016.
After his second divorce, Elon dated actress Amber Heard. After a year of dating the pair ended their relationship.
A year after his breakup with Amber, he began seeing Grimes.
Is Grimes pregnant?
The internet went abuzz once again for Elon and Grimes when the singer posted a photo that hinted that she is pregnant. In the NSFW photo, Grimes is topless, and her stomach is protruding.
She first captioned the photo "being knocked up is a very feral & war-like state of being. Might as well be what it is."
When Instagram removed the picture for nudity, she re-posted a censored version of the shot. But, her caption changed to "Censored for insta haha — almost got away w[ith] it."
Many celebrities and fans took to the comments section to congratulate the singer, including Janelle Monae.
Elon has not yet commented on the potential baby news, and the couple hasn't been spotted publicly at an event since the 2018 Met Gala. Some did wonder if the photo was really promotion for Grimes' upcoming album, but the caption does suggest otherwise.
If Grimes and Elon are expecting, then congrats are in order for the couple.
