As rumors circulate around the possibility that Grimes is pregnant, Elon Musk sent a cryptic tweet saying 'x is y' in response to photographs she posted of herself with an apparent baby bump. 

Musk's tweet was in reply to a photograph that shows a mirrored image of the singer wearing a top that is open at the front and reveals an apparent baby bump. Grimes replied to Musk's message saying "Toss a coin to ur Witcher," in what looks to be a nod to a song from the Netflix TV series 'The Witcher.' 

The full exchange can be seen below: 


Rumors have been circulating since Wednesday about a possible pregnancy when Grimes posted a different photograph on Instagram where she also appears to have a bump. 

An original version of the photo was deleted after it was censored for nudity, but an amended version was re-uploaded on the same day with the caption "censored for insta haha - almost got away with it." 
Grimes uploaded a second photograph on Instagram the next day - a single version of the same one she posted on Twitter which garnered a response from Musk. 

Comments from several verified accounts on this post, including from singer Janelle Monae express congratulatory and emotional responses to the singer about her apparent pregnancy.
