Elon Musk and his girlfriend Grimes welcomed a boy on Monday, May 4th, and the CEO of Tesla shared the first pictures of their son X Æ A-12. Musk announced the baby's birth message on Twitter by saying to his fans, "Mom and baby, all well."
Musk posted two pictures of his newborn after a fan commented, "We really need to see a picture of the baby !! Please share. "One of the pictures showed Musk with a smiling X Æ A-12 looking down at the baby. The father and son were in the hospital when the picture was taken, and Musk was holding a mask.

The second photo was a close-up of X Æ A-12 with a facial tattoo filter, on the face of which the newborn was written "moody" and "wild". The filter also gave the baby long eyelashes. When someone asked for the filter, Musk replied, "Never too young for some ink, haha."
After Musk revealed that he and Grimes had called their son X Æ A-12, fans immediately tried to decrypt the code and figure out how to pronounce it correctly. Musk liked a tweet that suggested the correct pronunciation was "X Ash Archangel" and also included screenshots to prove her theory.
A Wikipedia screenshot showed that Æ is a ligature called "ash". The theory says that the A-12 is a reference to the Lockheed A-12 CIA aircraft, code-named "Archangel".
Others believe that the X could stand for Xavier, which means that the baby's name could possibly be pronounced "Xavier Ash Archangel".

According to page 6, Musk and Grimes started secretly dating each other in spring 2018 after getting to know each other online and overcoming a joke. Musk wanted to tweet the joke – which dealt with the complications of artificial intelligence – but discovered that Grimes had hit him.
The couple first appeared together in public when they walked the red carpet together at the 2018 Met Gala.
X Æ A-12 is Grimes & # 39; s first child and he is number six for Elon Musk. The technology entrepreneur shares five sons with his ex-wife Justine Wilson: the twins Griffin and Xavier and the triplets Damian, Saxon and Kai.
