Today show host Karl Stefanovic can’t pronounce singer Grimes’ name correctly… calling her ‘Grimmies’ as he announces the birth of her second child to billionaire Elon Musk
Today show co-host Karl Stefanovic clearly doesn’t listen to indie pop singer Grimes.
On Friday’s episode of the morning show, while announcing the birth of the Oblivion hitmaker’s second child with Elon Musk, he completely mispronounced her name.
‘Billionaire Elon Musk welcomes a second child singer Grimmies,’ he said awkwardly.

Karl’s co-host Sarah Abo then quietly corrected the 47-year-old.
Elon and Grimes were inspired by supercomputing, dark matter, and ‘deep space time’ when choosing their one-of-a-kind name for their newborn daughter Exa Dark Sideræl, whom they are calling ‘Y’ for short.
The singer, 33, revealed in a cover interview with Vanity Fair that she and the billionaire SpaceX founder, 50, secretly welcomed a second child via surrogate in December while opening up about the origins of her unique moniker.
According to Grimes, the baby girl’s three names are all rooted in science, with one nod to the singer’s love of Lord of the Rings and elven mythology.
She also confirmed that she and Elon has called quits on their relationship in a series of tweets Vanity Fair interview.

‘Me and E have broken up *again* since the writing of this article,’ she wrote in the tweets which were posted approximately four hours after her interview was published online, and which were ‘liked’ by her ex Elon.
‘But he’s my best friend and the love of my life.’
In her sit-down with Vanity Fair, Grimes opened up about her ‘fluid’ relationship with Elon, who has an estimated net worth of $228.7 billion, explaining that the couple were still romantically involved and were co-parenting their two children together, despite living in separate homes.
She also opened up about the then-couple’s new arrival, but only after the Vanity Fair writer who conducted the interview at Grimes’ new Austin, Texas, home overheard the baby girl crying in an upstairs room.
Having initially told the publication that she was ‘not at liberty to speak on… whatever is going on with family stuff’, Grimes admitted that she had welcomed a daughter with Elon.
