Although Grimes didn’t disclose how she contracted the virus or whether her partner Elon Musk or their child, X AE A-XII, were affected by her diagnosis, this possibly isn’t their family’s first experience with COVID-19 during the pandemic.

Back in November of 2020, Musk disclosed that he "most likely" had COVID-19 after receiving varying results from multiple tests.

Back then, Musk said "DayQuil rocks" when detailing his symptoms — so it seems like he and Grimes took similar paths to recovery.

@AstroJordy @erujabidi A little up & down. Feels just like a regular cold, but more body achy & cloudy head than coughing/sneezing. DayQuil rocks.
