The “Violence” singer and her boyfriend, tech entrepreneur Elon Musk, welcomed their first child together, a baby boy, on Monday, per People. Musk confirmed the news with fans on Twitter, writing “Mom & baby all good,” after hinting that Grimes was only a few hours away from delivery. Musk later confirmed that their newborn was indeed a baby boy and also revealed his off-kilter name: X Æ A-12 Musk.
Later, Musk shared sweet photos of the couple’s new bundle. The first image is a close-up of the baby boy napping as a silly Instagram filter of illustrated face tattoos covers his tiny mug. “Never too young for some ink haha,” Musk joked in the comments. In the following image, Musk is cradling his son, who is adorably yawning mid-photo and looking all snuggly wrapped in a blanket and donning a tiny newborn cap.
Grimes first confirmed she was pregnant back in January after sharing the baby news on Instagram following weeks of media speculation. In March, the musician confirmed to Rolling Stone that Musk was indeed the father.
