Elon Musk and Grimes welcomed their first baby together but in true form, it wasn’t the most traditional revelation.
The 48-year-old Tesla CEO responded to a tweet from @cleantechnia about the EPA denying the claim that the testing for the Tesla Model S was faulty.
@cleantechnica Weird that EPA would deny this. We have precise car logs that confirm it happened. Happy to provide them. — Elon Musk (@Elon Musk)
Then Twitter user @Gaelic_Neilson took the opportunity to ask the multibillionaire if there was any news on his baby.
Musk responded that the baby was “a few hours away” and then sure enough, about four hours later, he tweeted:
@Gaelic_Neilson Mom & baby all good — Elon Musk (@Elon Musk)
In follow-up tweets, Musk then posted some photos of his baby boy:

And then this one of the baby with a filter over his face of some pretend tattoos and a follow-up tweet stating “Never too young for some ink haha”:

Oh, and a name?
Musk revealed (and we’re not actually sure if it’s a joke or not – because hey, it is Elon Musk and Grimes after all) that their new baby would be called “X Æ A-12 Musk”.
It appears to be a reference to Grimes’ song "4ÆM" from her fifth studio album, Miss Anthropocene.
The new little bundle of joy is Musk’s sixth son but Grimes’ first.
Twitter had a lot of thoughts about the new baby to the eccentric parents and so the memes began:
Grimes and Elon Musk just welcomed their baby into the world !
