Elon Musk recently forgot baby X Æ A-12’s name in a brilliantly awkward interview.
Now the name doesn’t seem like such a good idea, does it?
Their unusual choice of a name got the entire world talking… but clearly not enough for Elon himself to remember it going by a recent interview!
And, being the founder, CEO, and Chief Engineering Designer of SpaceX and Tesla, he has an awful lot going for him.
He is a seriously smart guy and quickly putting aside the Tesla Cybertruck disaster last year, his success is undeniable.
Meaning that it will certainly take a lot to drag this man down.
It’s time to talk about his personal life.
Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, went public with the billionaire at the Met Gala in 2018.
And on Grimes’ Instagram page, which is certainly a rollercoaster experience when scrolling through it, there is no sign at all of the billionaire.
Rumors began to circulate around Grimes being pregnant with Elon’s child.
She revealed to the media that she was, indeed, 7-months pregnant with Elon’s child.
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.
Because Grimes announced that they planned on raising their child as gender-neutral.
When asked, “Will you have a boy or a girl?”, Grimes replied, “They may decide their fate and identity.”
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.”
And this Twitter user was completely right because Elon’s photo shortly after the birth completely broke the internet…
Finally, the happy day arrived for the couple.
On May 4th, which is ironically Star Wars day, Grimes and Elon welcomed their baby into the world, with Elon sharing this adorable photo on Twitter in response to eager fans.
And when asked what the baby’s name is, Elon replied with, “X Æ A-12 Musk.”
But it really wasn’t.
The baby was actually called “X Æ A-12 Musk.”
And the cruel memes just didn’t seem to be stopping.
“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.
By using the pronoun “he.”
California law prohibits Indo-Arabic numerals in names.
And this ultimately forced them to change their son’s name.
Introducing, Baby X Æ A-Xii.
Yep, not really much of a difference (aka it’s still, well, bizarre) – the couple simply substituted in the Roman numerals signifying “12.”
And, now that name is now even more impossible to pronounce…
The couple have come up with a quirky little nickname for their baby.
In an interview with Bloomberg about her art, Grimes casually mentioned that she and Elon call their son “Baby X”, which is surprisingly normal next to his full name.
It seems that even Elon himself is struggling with the bizarre name!
And when he took part in a short interview on the site, he was asked about how little X Æ A-12 was doing.
He then asked them to repeat the question before laughing and responding, “Oh, you mean my kid!”
“Yeah, he’s great! I think next time I am going to bring him, maybe come back in a few months and bring him along.”
