In a new interview, Grimes reveals how she and Elon Musk are preparing for the birth of their first child. Throughout the candid conversation, she explains how they intend not to spoil the baby and the reason behind that mysterious "WarNymph" alter ego.

Speaking to The Face, the Canadian singer said that the avatar will allow her to stay offline in order to concentrate on motherhood. "Having a digital body allows me to keep working throughout the later stages of my pregnancy, and after I have my baby, so I can spend more time with them. It's hard for me to do photoshoots and fit into clothes at the moment, but WarNymph is here in your magazine promoting my album for me."

WarNymph is rather an act of "techno-feminism." She reasons that "Everyone is living two lives: their digital life and their offline life. I want to untether my two lives from each other for mental-health purposes. A lot of my friends aren’t having babies because they’re worried about their careers, and we wanted to find a way to overcome this issue."

As far as raising her child, Grimes plans to send them to live in the woods with her grandfather, so they don't become too spoiled. "He’s very intense. Lots of physical labor in the cold and whatnot."

In case you were wondering, she has no plans to party with her child, either. "Children need to get into raving, but I don't think I'll rave with my kid… I don't think kids and adults need to rave together. I don't have a problem with late bedtimes/​nocturnalism. Unless there's some health risk I should know about. The baby has already been exposed to a lot of techno in the womb."
