Grimes Is Having a Baby and People are Shook

She made the announcement with a topless photo.

There’s an entirely new generation of celebrity babies on the way, and some folks are just not ready for it.

Post-pop provocateur Grimes has revealed that she is pregnant, presumably with boyfriend Elon Musk’s child, and she did so in extremely Grimes-like fashion: a topless social media post featuring the image of a fetus superimposed over her stomach.

As expected, a fast and furious firestorm of internet responses soon erupted, given the stature of the expected parents. A recurring theme: alien baby! Musk, after all, is the founder and CEO of SpaceX.

“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,” Grimes shared on Instagram in a now-deleted post. “Plus being knocked up is a very feral & war-like state of being. Might as well be what it is. Plus most of my friends told me not to post them so then I was afflicted with reverse psychology. Interrogated my shame on it and decided it was sum weird internalized self hatred to feel uncomfortable abt my body. Hope ur having a nice day!”

Grimes reposted the pic on Instagram, only this time minus the image featuring her bare nipples.
