Congratulations, Elon Musk

Congratulations are in order for Elon Musk and Grimes! The news of Grimes’ pregnancy is spreading across Twitter quickly, and for me, is showing as the #1 trend on Twitter. Yesterday, Iran bombed American air-bases in Iraq. People were worried about war and just how much our current president could make things worse. However, today, we have a bright moment of joy to celebrate. Grimes, who is dating Elon Musk, made a cryptic announcement on Instagram. Unfortunately, Instagram deleted it since it had a nude photo of her.

Pictures speak thousands of words. So did Grimes’ photo. She was nude, but there on her rounded belly was a photoshop of a baby in the womb. And her comments to users replying to her pretty much confirmed what many think: that she is pregnant. Babies represent hope and joy. Children give us reason to care about the future. They remind us that when we are gone, the world is theirs, so we need to do as much as we can to ensure that the world we leave behind is one they will love and care about as well.

Many speculated that Elon’s dancing in China was because he was filled with so much joy — joy from Grimes now carrying his sixth child. With the exception of Grimes’ comment about being “knocked up,” neither has officially confirmed this pregnancy. Babies are also metaphors — something new. It could be the release of her new album in the new year. Tesla has had several new things happen. The Gigafactory in China is now open, and there is a new one planned for Germany. Several new customers pre-ordered the Cybertruck as well, and the fact that Grimes was a part of the reveal show just how close this couple truly are despite the mystery surrounding them online.

As for that mystery–that’s how it should be. They are private people who are also very public figures and many often forget that every human being has emotions, needs, wants, goals, and dreams.  We all want to be loved and accepted for who we are and when it comes to people like Elon Musk and Grimes, many often forget that due to the pedestal fans set them on. I am a fan of both, but I aim to treat them normally online as I would treat my neighbor on or offline.

To me, it’s obvious that Grimes is pregnant, but some are still speculating that she is talking about her new album, Miss_Anthropocene. Either way, Elon Musk has achieved a lot in 2019 and also 2020 even though this year is just getting started.  I think we have something to celebrate here–life, joy, and happiness. Here’s to the joy of a happy couple who care deeply about our world and are doing things to impact others positively. Congratulations, Elon Musk and Grimes!
