Elon Musk’s new baby is named X Æ A-12

The father of AI and human colonization of Mars Elon Musk had a newborn baby boy with his current partner singer/artist Grimes aka ‘c’ on Monday night. 


Musk announced the news of the baby casually on twitter saying “The baby is a few hours away” when someone asked him about the due date of his partner on a completely unrelated tweet about EPA testing on Tesla’s Model S.


He later tweeted “Mom and baby all good” along with a picture of him wearing an “Occupy Mars” T-shirt and holding his newborn baby. 


Musk and his partner who goes by the stage name Grimes have decided to name the baby X Æ A-12 Musk.


X Æ A-12 is presumed to be a cryptic code to the real baby name that could be from the couple’s favorite supersonic airplane or a couple of their favorite things. 


Musk’s partner later confirmed the name on Twitter explaining the meaning. 


“•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).” Sic. 


But nothing is confirmed yet. For all, we know the AI loving ACID dropping couple could literally use this as the baby’s official name or could come up with a simpler easy to pronounced alternative. 


Reportedly the couple has also decided to adopt Gender Neutral parenting methods to raise the newborn.  


Musk has a flair for weird names around him. As sometime back his partner Grimes has officially changed her name to ‘c’, which is a universal constant for speed of light. And revealed Elon encouraged and suggested the name change.


Musk and ‘c’ have been dating for about two years now. The two met on Twitter when Musk reportedly ‘found’ her when he posted an AI joke about a supercomputer devil-like creature ‘Roko’s Basillisk and found out that Grimes had cracked the joke years earlier and beat him to the punch line. That’s when Musk knew he had to reach out to her. 

Musk and ‘c’ also made headlines at the 2018 Met Gala when ‘c’ walked the red carpet wearing a Tesla logo choker co-designed by Musk. 


Musk and ‘c’ are a very odd couple that is perfectly in sync with each other and many who know them clam the world is in simulation till the two of them are together. 

This is Elon Musk’s sixth son. He has 5 sons from his previous marriage to Justine Musk. On the work front Musk, has just signed a deal with actor Tom Cruise and is in talks with NASA to shoot a movie in space.
