Late Monday night, Elon Musk and his girlfriend, Grimes, welcomed the birth of their new baby boy! Since hinting at the upcoming delivery on Twitter Monday, Musk has been giving small glimpses into the health of both mom and baby to his followers on Twitter.
Tuesday morning, he responded to fan requests for a picture of the baby, with a photo of him holding his newborn son. A couple hours later, he followed up with a funny picture of the baby through an AR-lens, which made it look like it had face tattoos. Later he said, “never to young for some ink haha,” which is definitely true!
When pleaded with to provide the name of the baby to the public, Musk tweeted a series of symbols, which looked more like designation of a starship or android than an actual name. Fitting for a baby born on Star Wars day. There is no telling what the actual name may be.
This will be Musk’s sixth child, after both a pair of twins and set of triplets from a former marriage. On the other hand, this is Grimes’ first child.
Congratulations to the new parents!
X Æ A-12 Musk
