Grimes is currently pregnant with her boyfriend, the CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, however, she’s struggling through the final trimester of her pregnancy, Page Six has learned.
The 31-year-old singer announced that she was “mega sick” from her pregnancy on Instagram earlier this week, and would also be stopping all photoshoots in promotion of her upcoming record, Miss_Anthropocene. Reportedly, Grimes’ new record drops on Friday.
Rather than her appearence on the cover, a virtual avatar named “Warnymph” takes the front cover of The Face, a fashion magazine from London, England. On her IG account, Grimes revealed that she couldn’t grace the cover of The Face at 7-months-pregnant, so instead, she opted for the avatar instead.
Grimes explained the reasoning for her decision to use the avatar, noting what was mentioned above. In other words, her medical situation thwarts her from doing typical press and interviews. Another picture features Grimes, rather than an avatar, but according to her, she looks a bit sick in it.

Does she look like me? Should she be more fantastical? What edits would you make to @warnymph beta 1.0? She’ll die soon so now is the time to critique demo girl! (She won’t be sad) Ok! ___________________________________________ Ok! TMI here — but prob out of album stress? x too much work etc I was mega sick last night (it was rough haha 😭 sorry for tmi) but it rly makes the reason we made the @Warnymph all the more relevant to me cuz I CANNOT DO ANY MORE PJOTOS OR I WILL DIEEE. But yes, 🧚🏻♀️🪐🐉 At 7 months pregnant, I sent my avatar to represent me for the cover of The Face magazine! 💅🏻💅🏻 A huge part of why we made her was cuz I knew I might have to delay my album due to the way it’s synching up w my whole health scenario and rly didn’t wanna do that again ! This is the first time we let the @warnymph be rendered through another artist’s Lens so thank u to @dylan.kowalski.artwork and @thefacemagazine All dresses @balenciaga. And editor @stuart_brumfitt and Art Director @stuart_brumfitt and @celibatewives PR @huxley story by @michellelhooq And shout out @macboucher who is lead artist on her and built her. Version beta 1.0 is now…~ 15 years old? Hopefully not unethical to have her in the public eye haha 😯 Ps I love this interview – it’s unedited and p cool.
As it was previously reported, Claire Boucher, also known as Grimes, announced she was pregnant in January. Approximately a month later, she stated that she was having skin issues as well. Grimes complained of skin problems when she first got pregnant, asking Vogue reporters during an interview if they had ever experienced anything like that.
She added that doing makeup while pregnant is a lot harder for some reason too. As most know, Grimes’ pregnancy with Elon Musk has come as somewhat of a surprise among Musk’s massive fanbase and her own, due to the unlikeliness of such a relationship.
Before he dated Grimes, Elon Musk was also linked to the rapper, Azealia Banks. Page Six reported back in March of 2019 that despite their run-in with Banks, Musk and Grimes were still an item, which surprised a lot of people on social media.
In 2018, Banks took to her social media to state that Musk wanted to have a threesome with her and Grimes, but later referred to him as a “trash a*s beta male pig.”
