Vanity Fair published an interview with Grimes, in which she revealed that a child was born in December. The billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk and musician Grimes have given birth to a daughter they named Exa Dark Sideræl Musk — although they will mostly call her Y.
Vanity Fair published an interview with Grimes, 33, detailing the birth of he and her child in December.
She did so by accident, it seems: the magazine reporter said he heard what sounded like a baby crying upstairs during the interview at Grimes’ home in Texas and after Grimes first winced and acted evasively, she finally admitted that she was a mom again.
Grimes says she endured complications during her first pregnancy, so the parents decided to use a surrogate this time.
The birth of their first child, a boy born in May 2020, was widely covered in the press, notably because of his name: X Æ A-12, or more simply, X.
Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk, currently the richest person in the world, announced last fall that he was “semi-separated” from the singer.
“I would probably refer to him as my boyfriend, but we’re very fluid,” Grimes told Vanity Fair.
The eclectic artist, whose real name is Claire Boucher, added that she and Musk live in separate houses but remain “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,” she said.
Grimes said she and Musk plan to have more children: “We’ve always wanted at least three or four,” she said.
The name Exa Dark Sideræl, Grimes explained, includes multiple references to space and technology: she said Exa refers to supercomputing; Sideræl, a more “elven” spelling of sidereal — this word means involving distant stars — and Dark, for “the unknown.”
“Dark matter is the beautiful mystery of our universe,” said Grimes, who did not rule out that her daughter might want to change her name in the future.
Additionally, Grimes said she hopes to keep her daughter out of the spotlight.
“The best situation here is me training the girl and him training the boy,” she told Vanity Fair at her home in Austin, Texas.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has announced that his primary residence is now in southern Texas, at the rocket manufacturing and launch facility of SpaceX. Musk recently sold his Los Angeles residence.
During a virtual presentation on the space company’s new rocket, the blond-headed X was seen sitting in his father’s lap.
Musk, 50, has been divorced three times and had eight children, including a baby who died at only 10 weeks of age.
