Grimes just gave birth and doesn't appreciate being called out which she made clear to her baby daddy, Elon Musk, after the Tesla founder corrected her explanation of their son's name. Fans were shocked when they revealed their newborn's name to be X Æ A-12 and the new mom tried to explain the meaning behind their bizarre choice but apparently she got it wrong, according to her billionaire boyfriend. In her original tweet, Grimes revealed that "A-12" is the "precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft)," but Elon Musk put her on blast after claiming that's not right, something she later chalked up as a "typo."

Their Twitter Feud:


Responding to her original "SR-17" tweet, the SpaceX founder was quick to point out, "SR-71, but yes." But the singer wasn't just going to sit back and let her baby daddy put her on the spot in front of fans. She clapped back by tweeting to his correction, "I am recovering from surgery and barely alive so may my typos b forgiven but, damnit. That was meant to be profound 🦔." Elon Musk soon learned the error of his ways and came crawling back on Twitter by telling her, "U r a powerful [fairy emoji] [queen emoji]."

The Meaning Behind The Name:


Prior to her boyfriend's correction, Grimes went into full detail about how they came up with his name. "X" represents "the unknown variable," she previously explained. "Æ" is her "elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence)." She also revealed that "A" represents her favorite song, "Archangel," and "12" is for the Chinese zodiac sign of the rat. Fans knew the couple's baby name would be unique but no one thought it would be so complicated. Prior to the singer giving birth, rumors began to swirl that Grimes and Elon Musk were planning to name their baby "Influenza."

Were They Going To Name Him 'Influenza?'


Twitter lit up with the news they had decided on the name to commemorate this trying time in the world, resulting in several people immediately taking their shock to social media. People got creative with someone posting a meme of an anxious girl with the caption, "influenza musk first day at school mentally preparing for roll call." Another showed a screeching black cat with the words, "influenza musk when someone asks her what her name is." A third troll showed gray clouds and a storm brewing over the city. "Influenza musk after getting out of grimes vagina," they wrote. It was later revealed that the rumor was just a hoax.
