After confirming their separation last year, Elon Musk and Grimes appear to have reconciled. The couple just welcomed their second child, a girl, named Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, via surrogacy.

The revelation came during a Vanity Fair interview with Grimes when the reporter heard a baby crying. While the musician acted evasively at first, she later confirmed that she and the billionaire are indeed new parents again.

Grimes also confirmed that Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, or referred by her parents as just ‘Y’ was born back in December, through a surrogate mother, a decision made due to the complications she endured during her first pregnancy. 

Grimes explained the name Exa Dark Sideræl is a reference to “space and technology”. Breaking down her daughter’s name, Grimes added that Exa refers to supercomputing, while Sideræl, or more “elven” spelling of sidereal, is a reference to distant stars, while Dark, stands for “the unknown.”

“Dark matter is the beautiful mystery of our universe,” said Grimes.

Describing her relationship with the billionaire, Grimes explained, “I would probably refer to him as my boyfriend, but we’re very fluid,” adding that she and Musk live in separate houses. 

Further commenting on it, she said, “We see each other all the time… We just have our own thing going on, and I don’t expect other people to understand it.” Grimes also confirmed that the couple plans to have more children, saying “We’ve always wanted at least three or four,”

However, just a few hours after the news broke out, Grimes confirmed that the couple has broken up again. 

The couple had their first child together back in May 2020, a boy by the name of X Æ A-12, or more simply, X. And just like last time, reactions have been pouring on Twitter. Here are some of our favourites.
