Elon Musk has dinner date with babymama Grimes in NYC… after his first rehearsal hosting SNL

SpaceX founder Elon Musk capped off his first day of rehearsals hosting Saturday Night Live by having a dinner date with his babymama Grimes in Manhattan on Tuesday night.

At 49, the South African-born billionaire is 16 years older than the Canadian art-pop musician, with whom he has a year-old son X Æ A-Xii.

Elon and Grimes (born Claire Elise Boucher) originally bonded over Twitter before making their official red carpet debut as a couple at the Met Gala in May 2018.

The pop experimentalist – who just signed with Columbia Records -showcased her eccentric style in a white knit hat, goggle-style shades, a purple top, and ‘Human’ leggings.

The cerebral couple – who’ve both survived bouts with COVID-19 – wore disposable black face masks despite the CDC’s new guidelines to only do so indoors or in crowds.

And it’s a good thing Elon did since he stopped to sign autographs for several waiting fans.

One of the autograph seekers handed Musk a small model of a car, which he closely examined once safely inside his Tesla Model X.
