Hold up.

Grimes and Elon Musk have just had a third baby – and it turns out many people didn’t realise they ever had a second!

The Oblivion singer and owner of X (formerly Twitter) hit headlines when they had their first son in 2020.

They controversially named him X Æ A-12, pronounced X Ash, according to Elon on a Joe Rogan podcast.

Fans were shocked when Elon took to Twitter shortly after Grimes had given birth to their son to correct her detailed explanation of their baby’s name.

He pointed out a typo in Grimes’ description, to which she replied that she was recovering from surgery and to forgive her for getting mixed up. Not cool, Elon!

According to TMZ, the legislation in California doesn’t allow numbers in names, so Grimes and Elon adjusted the name slightly to read X Æ A-Xii. However, TMZ alleges that the little boy’s name is legally just the letter X.

In 2021, Grimes and Elon appeared to have separated but were still living together.

They spoke fondly of each other in interviews, with Elon telling Page Six they were “semi separated” but still friends, while Grimes told Vanity Fair, “We’re very fluid. We live in separate houses. We’re best friends. We see each other all the time”.

Then, in 2022, Grimes revealed that her and Elon had actually had another baby via surrogacy, also in 2021.

The couple kept the birth quiet – many didn’t realise they had welcomed a new member into their family at all!

Their second daughter was originally named Exa Dark Sideræl. However, in a post of her little girl, Grimes shared they had changed her name to “Y…or ‘Why?’ or just ‘?'”.

Now, Elon and Grimes have brought a third little one into the world, though any details on this new arrival have been kept under wraps, as has any update on their romantic relationship.

All we know is that the baby was revealed in a biography on Elon, written by American journalist Walter Isaacson.

Elon and Grimes then confirmed their third child’s existence in their classic nonchalant social media style.

Grimes wrote on X (formerly known as Twitter), “I wish I could show u how cute little Techno is but my priority rn is keeping my babies out of the public eye”.

While Elon responded to a tweet sharing the baby’s name: Tau Techno Mechanicus. This is believed to be a reference to the game Warhammer 40,000. Tau is also the 19th letter of the Greek alphabet, denoted as T.

So it looks like a pattern is emerging, as each of the famous duo’s kids could be referred to as a single letter; X, Y and T.

According to the Daily Mail, Elon now has 11 children in total. The tech billionaire has six children with his first wife, twins with the director of operations at his company Neuralink, and three kids with Grimes.

That’s one busy household!
