Tesla CEO Elon Musk Welcomes 7th Child, First with Singer Grimes

Congrats to Billionaire SpaceX Founder and Tesla CEO Elon Musk on the birth of his seventh child, his first with partner, singer Grimes.

The South African native announced the news by simply tweeting, “Mom & baby all Good” on the night of Monday, May 4th.

The couple immediately made headlines again later that evening when he replied to a fan asking for the child’s name and replied back:  X Æ A-12.

Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, explained the name on Twitter.

“•X, the unknown variable •Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence) •A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent + (A=Archangel, my favorite song) ( metal rat)” she tweeted.

But that name likely won’t even hold up in California where the baby was born, Mashable explains.

That is because “official names can only include the 26 letters of the English alphabet, an apostrophe for names like O’Connor, and a hyphen. In other words, Grimes’ baby’s birth certificate may sport an unusual name, but it will likely not include an ‘Æ.’

David Glass, a family law attorney who spoke with People, confirmed as much.

‘[Grimes and Musk] have an opportunity to appeal the rejection of the birth certificate application but it’s unlikely that it will be granted because, again, California … has been struggling with using symbols,’ he told the publication.”

Baby makes his 6th living son (his first child with first wife Justine Wilson sadly died of SIDS as an infant)

He and Wilson share 5 sons, a set of twins and triplets- all boys, Damian, Griffin, Xavier, Saxon and Kai.

Musk was also previously married to Westworld star Talulah Riley, who plays Angela on that hit HBO show.

Elon Musk’s Girlfriend Singer Grimes is Pregnant {Bag Secured}

 

Bag secured!

Tesla CEO Elon Musk and his Canadian musician girlfriend Grimes are expecting their first child together, a baby boy.

The ethereal 31-year old announced the pregnancy news by posting a photo of herself in the nude on her Instagram page, revealing a large baby bump with a photoshop of a fetus over it.

She replied to a fan who commented on the photo with “knocked up”.

The singer, real name Claire Boucher, orignially posted a version of the maternity portrait shot by photographer Eli Russell Linnetz that displayed her nipples which was ripped down by the social media site before she reposted an edited version

Comments from several celebrities, including from the singer Janelle Monae, expressed congratulatory and emotional messages to the singer.

Yesterday, Musk alluded to the baby’s sex by reposting the photo of Grimes with the comment, “X is Y”, and given the XY chromosome is indicia of a boy, most assume that’s what the couple who’ve dated off and on since 2018 are having.

The $132,000 Mini-Van rich Soccer Moms Pre-Ordered Years Ago is HERE!

Tesla unveiled its long-awaited crossover SUV aimed at the safety-conscious soccer mom…oh who has $132,000 in her back pocket to spare for this vehicle.

But wait…before Tesla unveiled its new Model X SUV last Tuesday, it had already secured at least 30,000 pre-orders, mainly from North America!

Wowza! Sight unseen. Test-drive undone. Yup!

Some won’t even get their SUVs delivered until 2016.

During a Tuesday exhibition in San Francisco before journalists, Tesla’s founder Elon Musk unveiled the Signature Model X and showed off all its fancy features like computer controlled “falcon wing” doors that open on the side. It has super ultrasonic sensors to prevent the doors from dinging nearby vehicles in the mall parking lot.

It boasts an ultra-thin profile and the rear seats can scoot forward by themselves — even with baby still strapped in his infant carrier, so other passengers can access the back of the SUV.  Fancy.

It has a dual-motor, all-wheel drive system, and will be the first EV-SUV of its kind to have towing ability.

And if you need speed, the Signature Model X line will go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph.

“This thing goes so fast it’s wrong,” Musk said at the event.

Tesla promised to release this model in 2013 and it has been delayed successively, perhaps because as Musk explained Tuesday, it was “the most difficult car in the world to build.”

Musk admitted that he could have sold the cars without the extra bells and whistles they added to it, like a panoramic windshield and an air-filtration system with a “bioweapon defense mode.”  No Zombie apocalyptic germs will get in this puppy!

The Model X has a triple-layer-carbon air filter that can virtually eliminate all bacteria from the cabin.

In August, Tesla had received “22,538 reservations for the SUV in North America, which is its largest market. The figure represents 75% of the global reservations. 21,193 Americans and 1,346 Canadians are eagerly waiting for their Model X,” Business Finance News reported.

The company obtained 4,680 orders from Europe, which reflects 16% of the global orders. Asia Pacific only contributes 9% of the worldwide reservations with 2,809 orders. In Asia Pacific, Tesla has received 2,345 orders from China, 366 from Hong Kong, and 98 from Australia.

Don’t fret, lowly middle class families, Musk revealed that it will start work on its Model 3, a lower-cost sedan that could retail around $35,000.  You just have to wait a little while longer given production on that version won’t begin until two years from now.

Whoa!
