Watch: How to Say Elon Musk & Grimes' Baby Name: X Æ A-12

Elon Musk is giving fans a glimpse into his life with Grimes and baby X Æ A-Xii.

On March 8, the Tesla Motors CEO took to his Twitter to share a photo of himself, his longtime girlfriend and their 10-month-old son.

In the photo—which he captioned, "Starbase, Texas"—the proud parents are both wearing sunglasses while the baby admired a colorful bouquet of flowers.

As for Starbase, the 49-year-old billionaire tweeted on March 2 that he's "Creating the city of Starbase" near Boca Chica Village in Cameron County of Texas. This is also the location of his company Space X, in which he's creating and will be launching the prototypes to the company's Starship spacecraft. Hence his follow-up tweet, "From thence to Mars, and hence to Stars."

Of course, the child—who's name pronunciation is still unconfirmed—has already been exposed to all types of astronomical and galactic greatness.

In December, Grimes shared a photo of X Æ A-Xii in her Instagram Story where he appeared to be viewing a space-themed picture book. Who knows if the baby will follow in his dad's Mars-bound footsteps, but the foundation is certainly there.

As for the meaning of his name, the couple has only released one tweet back in May 2020 explaining the scientific symbols.

"X, the unknown variable," the "Genesis" singer wrote. "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."


She also added, "A=Archangel, my favorite song." Elon chimed in after, "SR-71, but yes. I am recovering from surgery and barely alive so may my typos b forgiven but, da--it. That was meant to be profound."
