SAN FRANCISCO: Tech entrepreneur and multi-billionaire Elon Musk and his girlfriend, Claire Boucher, popularly known by her pseudonym Grimes, a Canadian singer have welcomed their first child together.
Musk announced the birth of their child on Twitter, confirming it's a baby boy and both mother and therefore the child were doing fine.
This will be Musk's, seventh child. The Tesla philanthropist and SpaceX CEO already has six children with ex-wife Justine Wilson.
Grimes announced that she was pregnant on Instagram in January.
During a Livestream on Twitch in February, she said that the baby's due date was May 4.
Grimes also revealed she doesn't want to ''gender'' her baby, saying they will "decide their fate and identity'' on their own accord.
Musk has been dating her since 2018. The couple first made headlines and took everyone to surprise after they appeared together at the MET Gala in 2018.
In response to a user's Tweet, that read: ''We need the name we literally need it,'' Musk replied, ''X Æ A-12 Musk.''
With that being announced, that is all that the Twiterratti needed to return barging in with memes! The name 'X Æ A-12' also became one of the most trending topics on Twitter.
Here are some of the best ones:
