But all anybody has been able to talk (and joke) about is the baby's very unusual name, but it seems that Californian laws may put an end to this strange venture. But firstly, let's start from the beginning...

For those of you that don't know, Elon Musk is a very wealthy man.

Being the founder, CEO, and Chief Engineering Designer of SpaceX and Tesla, he has an awful lot going for him.

Musk is certainly a man who knows what he's doing.

He is a seriously smart guy and quickly putting aside the Tesla Cybertruck disaster last year, his success is undeniable.

He has continuously bounced back from all of his professional disasters...

Meaning that it will certainly take a lot to drag this man down.

Now, putting aside his professional life...

It's time to talk about his personal life.

Since 2018, Musk has been in a relationship with Canadian musician, Grimes.

Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, went public with the billionaire at the Met Gala in 2018.

The pair have kept their relationship very private...

And on Grimes' Instagram page, which is certainly a rollercoaster experience when scrolling through it, there is no sign at all of Musk.

And after a series of unusual Instagram posts back in January...

Rumors began to circulate around Grimes being pregnant with Musk's child. Keep scrolling to see the adorable pictures...

Eventually, the news that everyone was waiting for came shortly after.

She revealed to the media that she was, indeed, 7-months pregnant with Musk's child.

When she was asked about what kind of mother she will be...

Grimes said music and "raving" would play a big part in it. "The baby has already been exposed to a lot of techno in the womb," she said.

It was apparent that Grimes and Musk had more ideas for their child...

Grimes announced that they planned on raising their child as gender-neutral.

More specifically...

When asked, "Will you have a boy or a girl?", Grimes replied, "They may decide their fate and identity."

She then went into more detail...

Talking on YouTube, Grimes added, "I don’t want to say the gender of the baby… because I feel like their privacy should be protected. I don’t think they can consent to being famous or being in public. And I don’t want to gender them in case that’s not how they feel in their life. I don’t know, I just feel like it doesn’t need to be known."

Whatever Musk and Grimes feel is best for their baby...

We should completely respect that fact.

Fans couldn't wait for the arrival of the baby...

And this Twitter user was completely right, Musk's most recent picture has completely broken the internet...

People weren't holding back questioning Musk...

Including what they might be when they grow up! Just chill, Luke.

Finally, the happy day arrived for the couple.

Even though an official birth date is yet to be confirmed, Grimes and Musk welcomed their baby into the world on Monday, with Musk sharing this adorable photo on Twitter in response to eager fans.

Musk even decided to play around with his followers a little.

Showing you're never too young for some ink... It's fake, obviously.

The little bundle of joy appears to be in great health...

And when asked what the baby's name is, Musk replied with, "X Æ A-12 Musk."

We were hoping it was going to be a joke...

But it really wasn't. The baby is actually called "X Æ A-12 Musk." Keep scrolling to find out what it means.

But it seems there could be more than meets the eye when it comes to the name...

Why? Because now fans are convinced the name is code adding up the baby's actual name.

One fan did a little digging...

And found that the name could be code for something else.

"Æ" is an e-ligature named "Ash."

And as for the "A-12" part of the name? Well, this fan thinks it has something to do with the Lockheed A-12 aircraft, whose internal coding is named "Archangel."

Sure, it's just a tweet from a fan...

And it might not mean anything at all, but...

Elon Musk himself liked the tweet!

And obviously, that started fuelling the conspiracy theory that "X Æ A-12" is simply a code for the baby's real name - X Ash Archangel.

And Grimes herself tweeted this...

Explaining the ins and outs of her child's name.

And when a confused fan tweeted this...

Grimes responded in the best possible way.

Grimes decided to explain her thoughts behind the name...

"I think it sounds like the name of the main character in the story... I hope he vibes with that. Ok, going back into the pain/beauty reverie for sum time just came on to add my thoughts - peace and love," she wrote back.

And it looks like she accidentally revealed the baby's gender...

By using the pronoun "he."

It's safe to say that in the last few days, the world has become obsessed with little X Æ A-12 Musk.

But it seems that there may be trouble in paradise for the new parents.

The state of California may not allow Musk and Grimes to name their child this.

A family attorney told PEOPLE that Californian law will prevent them from going forward with the name because it features things outside the alphabet.

Only words from the alphabet can be used in a baby's name...

David Glass explained, "In California, you can only use the 'twenty-six characters' of the English language in your baby name."

It makes perfect sense...

"Thus, you can't have numbers, Roman numerals, accents, umlauts, or other symbols or emojis. Although an apostrophe, for a name like 'O'Connor,' is acceptable," he went on to explain.

Musk and Grimes will be able to appeal if they're adamant about keeping this unusual name...

via: Getty Images

"They have an opportunity to appeal the rejection of the birth certificate application but it's unlikely that it will be granted because, again, California...has been struggling with using symbols."

Technically, the couple can actually turn X Æ A-12 into a legible name...

via: Getty Images

They can simply remove the non-alphabet letters on the birth certificate and just continue calling their child X Æ A-12.
