This pink and green striped leafy looking succulent (?) is growing taller and erected this funny little sprout! Any idea what it's called?

The plant looks like a Bromeliad called Earth Star. The little sprout is not part of the Earth Star - it is an uninvited guest.

Agreed, what you have is a Cryptanthus commonly called an Earth Star and a hitchhiker of some sort. I would personally uproot the volunteer Green Grin! .
