Watch: Elon Musk & Grimes Welcome Baby No. 2

Grimes might have an aspiring music lover on her hands.

The "Oblivion" singer shared a rare picture of daughter Exa Dark Sideræl Musk—who she shares with ex Elon Musk—as the baby girl leans over a book, wearing a pink bow on her head.

Grimes captioned the Twitter post, "My daughter is dancing to techno over this copy of the birth of tragedy by nietzsche - what a queen."

Who could the 9-month-old be bopping too? Grimes revealed in another tweet that her daughter "loves Boris Brejcha omg she's so hardcore haha," referencing the German DJ.

The "Genesis" artist revealed in March 2022 that she had privately welcomed Exa via surrogate in December 2021. But before Grimes was able to break the news herself, the newborn made her own introduction by crying in another room during her mom's in-person interview with Vanity Fair.

"Her full name is Exa Dark Sideræl Musk," Grimes told Vanity Fair. "Exa is a reference to the supercomputing term exaFLOPS (the ability to perform 1 quintillion floating-point operations per second). Dark, meanwhile, is ‘the unknown. People fear it but truly it's the absence of photons. Dark matter is the beautiful mystery of our universe.'"

Grimes explained that Sideræl, pronounced "sigh-deer-ee-el," relates to "the true time of the universe, star time, deep space time, not our relative earth time," and is also a tribute to her favorite Lord of the Rings character, Galadriel, who "chooses to abdicate the ring."

The "Flesh without Blood" singer also shares 2-year-old son X Æ A-12 Musk with the SpaceX founder, who told Page Six in September 2021 he was "semi-separated" from her.


The two are still on good terms, and Grimes told Vanity Fair she still refers to him as her boyfriend, though they're "very fluid."

"We live in separate houses. We're best friends. We see each other all the time…. We just have our own thing going on, and I don't expect other people to understand it," Grimes told Vanity Fair. "This is the best it's ever been.... We just need to be free."
