Elon Musk and Grimes now have a daughter, nicknamed Y

The entrepreneur and the singer have welcomed a new child, a little girl, born to a surrogate mother last December. They named her Exa Dark Sideræl.

Multi-entrepreneur Elon Musk and musician Grimes have a new child, whose birth had until now been kept secret. His name: Exa Dark Sideræl Musk. She is a girl, and her parents more commonly call her Y.

The 33-year-old mother revealed their second child together, a granddaughter born in December, in a river interview with Vanity Fair released Thursday.

The parents requested the services of a surrogate because of fears of complications, said Grimes, who described her first pregnancy as complicated.

The arrival of the couple’s first child, a boy born in May 2020, had been highly publicized. In particular his first name, X Æ A-12, or more simply, X.

“We live in separate houses”

Elon Musk, boss of Tesla, SpaceX and the richest man in the world, said in the fall that he was “semi-separated” from the singer.

“I would probably call him my boyfriend, but we are very fluid”, for his part explained in the interview Grimes, Claire Boucher of his real name. “We live in separate houses. We’re best friends. We see each other all the time… (…) I don’t expect people to understand.”

She pointed out that she and Elon Musk plan to have more children together.

The first name Exa Dark Sideræl was chosen for its spatial and technological references. Exa, for an ultra-powerful calculating machine. Sideræl, for sidereal. And Dark, or dark in French, for the “unknown” of “the absence of photons” and dark matter, “the wonderful mystery of our universe”, explained the artist.

Divorced three times

She does not exclude that her daughter wants to change her first name in the future. And hopes that it will be largely preserved from the gaze of the public and the media.

“The best situation here is me raising the little one, and him raising the little one,” Grimes said from her home in Austin, Texas, while Elon Musk’s primary residence is in the far south of that state. , where the SpaceX space base is located.

In November, the blond X had appeared on the knees of his father, during a virtual presentation on the new rocket of the company.

Divorced three times, Elon Musk, 50, is now eight times a father. Her first child, Nevada Alexander, born in 2002, died at 10 weeks.
