Musk also took a few moments while his wife was recovering from childbirth to correct her on Twitter.

Of course, many were simply surprised by the news that Garossino, who is well-known by many Canadians, is Grimes' mother.
Am I the only one in Vancouver who didn’t know that Sandy Garossino is Grimes’ mother and Elon Musk’s mother-in-law? https://t.co/mvXnBEpHee— Wes Regan (@Wes Regan) 1589842986.0

Elon Musk had better get his act together if he wants to keep his family situation happy.
