Grimes and Elon welcome little baby boy, X Æ A-12, and I imagine, have a really hilarious time watching us all scrambling around for answers on how to pronounce it. X Æ A-12 is the couple's first child together. Musk has five sons from a previous marriage, while Grimes sadly lost her first son, Nevada, to SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) when he was just 10 weeks old. The couple seem over the moon with the new addition to their family, with Musk responding to a fan tweet saying that the baby is, "Happy, healthy & cute as a button :)".

A week later Grimes shares a cute video of Elon cuddling 1-week old son, X Æ A-12, on her Instagram stories, along with two little pink heart emojis. It's all very sweet.

Sure, okay.
