Now more than a year since becoming a mom, Grimes is opening up about motherhood and sharing the truth about her relationship with her son.
In a video for Vogue Magazine detailing her look for the prestigious 2021 Met Gala, Grimes dropped some bombs about what her life has been since having X Æ A-12.
Motherhood Was A Rebirth
In the clip that showed her getting ready, the “Oblivion” songstress, whose real name is Claire Boucher, revealed that having her son was sort of “rebirth” in all areas all about her life, especially her art.
However, despite the rebirth, the Canadian native doesn’t seem to resonate with being labeled as a mother. Coincidentally, it seems her 16-month-old son shares the same idea as she revealed that he doesn’t refer to her using the word mother. She explained:
Being a mother feels weird to say for some reason. I don’t like identify with the word. Which is also really weird because X, he says Claire, but he doesn’t say like ‘mama,’ which is so…like, ‘How are you…?’ Like, maybe he can sense my distaste for the word mother.’
Grimes and Musk welcomed X Æ A-12 in May 2020, and his unusual name caused quite an uproar online.
•X, the unknown variable ⚔️
•Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence)
•A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent 🤍
(A=Archangel, my favorite song)

However, Grimes took to Twitter to clear the air and explain the meaning behind the unique moniker and how they came up with it. She wrote:
•X, the unknown variable •Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence) •A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent + (A=Archangel, my favorite song) ( metal rat)
Grimes At The 2021 Met Gala
For the Met Gala, Grimes was stunned in a metallic outfit that she revealed was inspired by the movie “Dune.” The 33-year-old rocked a custom-made Iris van Herpen gown that was reportedly made of “liquid silicone and hand-pleated silk.”
Grimes revealed that she was employed unofficially by the creators of the upcoming movie, which is set to be released on October 22, as an influencer to sort of promote the film at the gala.
Alongside the iconic gown, which reportedly took 900 hours to make, she rocked a silver metal face mask, lace-up platform boots from Marc Jacobs, and a giant silver sword that truly spiced up the look.
The headline-making sword was inspired by a European sword from the Middle Ages and wielded with unwanted automatic rifles that were liquefied.
Grimes And Musk’s Relationship Timeline
Grimes and Musk’s unconventional relationship debuted at the 2018 Met Gala in May 2018 when they walked the red carpet. However, it was reported that they met months earlier via Twitter, bonding over a joke about artificial intelligence.
Months after their appearance at the Met Gala, Grimes was intimated with the Tesla CEO’s family as she was spotted hanging out with him and his five sons from his marriage to ex-wife Justine Wilson.
However, Musk and Grimes’ relationship hasn’t been all fairytale as they have unfollowed each other on social media a couple of times. But since the birth of their son, things have been smooth sailing with the duo.
