AceShowbiz - Canadian musician Grimes confirmed she's pregnant in a Twitter post on Thursday, January 23, 2020, while telling fans she will do her utmost to protect her child's privacy.
It was reported that the singer was expecting her first child when she shared several snaps of herself "knocked up" on Instagram earlier this month, although some wondered whether the pictures were just part of an arty photoshoot.
However, Grimes has since set the record straight about the rumours, as she faced questions from fans about why she'd decided to set up a Twitter account for her "digital avatar" War Nymph.
The 31-year-old shared several images of the War Nymph - a baby with glowing red eyes and armed with a bow and arrow - on her Twitter page, leading to many wondering whether or not it was a depiction of her unborn child.
Responding to the speculation, Grimes tweeted, "As I've mentioned many times in the past, @WarNymph is a digital avatar that I've been working on for over a year. It is not a social media account for my unborn child. Plz (please) don't try to create controversy about my baby, whose privacy I plan on protecting."
It's believed Grimes' baby's father is Tesla co-founder Elon Musk, although he hasn't commented on the reports. Grimes did, however, tag him in her response.
Musk is already a father-of-five with his first wife, Canadian author Justine Wilson, whom he divorced in 2008 after eight years of marriage.
