Musk, the 48-year-old CEO of , gently corrected Grimes on Twitter to say the plane was an SR-71 — a Cold War spy aircraft.

“I am recovering from surgery and barely alive so may my typos b forgiven,” she joked in reply.

Grimes, 32, whose real name is Claire Boucher, announced she was pregnant in January.

The couple made waves with their first public appearance together at the Met Gala in 2018, surprising both the music and business worlds. Grimes wore a choker shaped like the Tesla logo, demonstrating their relationship status.

Musk, known for his vaulting ambition and brash demeanor, made news last week in a Twitter message saying Tesla’s stock was overvalued, sending shares of the electric carmaker tumbling.
