Alt-pop singer Grimes is working on a new project—motherhood. The “Oblivion” singer posted to Instagram, appearing to announce her pregnancy. And the way she describes the experience is both so unique and so relatable.

In a January 8th post captioned, “Censored for insta haha – almost got away w it,” Grimes uploaded a topless photo of herself with a superimposed fetus edited onto her stomach area, which looks like it could be a “baby bump.” She had posted an uncensored version of the pic first, but she changed it in order to comply with the platform’s guidelines.

Though she didn’t outwardly confirm her pregnancy in the caption, which led many to believe this was simply album artwork, Grimes did go into more detail in the comments section. Replying to a fan who complimented her racy pic, Grimes wrote, “I thought about censoring [my nipples] for a hot minute haha (this may get taken down anyway) but the photo is much less feral without the nipples.”

Grimes continued, “Plus being knocked up is a very feral & war-like state of being. Might as well be what it is.”

We’ve never heard anyone call pregnancy a “war-like state of being,” but honestly, yeah. She has a point.

If Grimes is pregnant, many believe Tesla founder Elon Musk may be the baby’s father. The pair have been linked since 2018, when they supposedly met via Twitter. But again, we haven’t gotten much info from either party regarding the potential pregnancy.

Even so, many of Grimes’ fans are expressing their joy for the singer.

“Congrats queen! ur child will save the world,” one fan wrote. Princess Nokia commented, “Congrats beautiful alien family.” Janelle Monáe shared a crying-face emoji and the party-popper emoji.

However, this entire thing may just be part of a new album. Perhaps Grimes is exploring the idea of motherhood in her latest music. We really don’t know. And until we get some actual confirmation, all we can do is hope Grimes wins whatever war she’s currently fighting.
