Elon Musk became a dad, again. And this time around, it’s yet another boy for him, though it is Grimes’ first baby ever. Grimes is a stage name for Claire Boucher, and according to Elon Musk Twitter account, both momma and little boy seem to be doing fine. This is technically Elon Musk’s seventh child and also his seventh son. With this little boy, he now has six children since his first little boy, Nevada Alexander Musk, tragically died of SIDS when he was just ten weeks old.
Elon’s first marriage was to writer Justine Wilson, and after their little boy died, they went on to have five more boys through IVF: a set of twin boys in 2004, followed by a set of triplet boys in 2006. Elon and Justine share custody of all five boys. After Justine, Elon Musk married actress Talulah Riley, and the marriage ended in 2016 without any children. After a brief romance with Amber Heard, he got involved with Grimes and the couple announced their pregnancy in 2020.
On May 4, 2020, Grimes gave birth to their baby boy, and the name chosen by the parents is too way out for us to understand. Its “X Æ A-12” and we do not know what to do with it, or how to say it aloud, or why was a name like this even thought of. We also do not know if that is the official name, but this definitely is what Musk tweeted when someone asked for the bonny little babe’s name, so explanations will just come later, Musk-style.
In 2020, Claire Boucher aka Grimes took to Instagram to share with her fans that the pregnancy was giving her a tough time. She wrote, “How do y’all cope with working and having a baby?? This whole thing has been a bit of an ordeal. Had some complications early on, a decent second trimester but starting to hurt everywhere at 25 wksz. [I’m] also way more emo and less capable of bravery in the face of haters online and stuff haha. Don’t mind my emo energy, but curious what other ppls experience was like???”
In February too, she talked about the baby and what kind of mother she would be like, saying, “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. But I wish I had discovered dance music at an earlier age. I don’t have a problem with late bedtimes/nocturnal. Unless there’s some health risk I should know about. The baby has already been exposed to a lot of techno in the womb.” Considering that strange “techno” name, we sort of agree with all this…
