Elon Musk-Grimes welcomed their second child, a daughter, last December
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and Canadian singer Grimes (born Claire Elise Boucher) have welcomed their second child via surrogacy. The now-separated couple—who share a son named X Æ A-12 Musk or simply X—is now parents to a daughter who was born in December last year. They have given her an intriguing yet complicated name as well, just like their son.
Grimes was the cover girl for Vanity Fair's April edition and in her interview with the publication, she shyly revealed about her daughter. Reporter David Gordon apparently heard a baby's cries while talking to Grimes and asked her about it. She was initially evasive but later confirmed that she indeed has added another member to her family. Grimes is notorious for not keeping secrets.
Grimes had notably faced complications while she was pregnant with son X Æ A-12—born in May 2020. Hence, the two had decided to opt for surrogacy for their second child, who has been named Exa Dark Sideræl Musk. Grimes revealed her nicknames are Y and Sailor Mars. Interestingly, the baby reveal comes at a time when Musk is reportedly dating Australian actor Natasha Bassett.
Reports of Musk, a multi-billionaire who sits on an alluring net worth of $273.5 billion, dating Bassett (27) surfaced in February. Bassett had been spotted exiting Gulfstream, Musk's private jet, as it touched down in Los Angeles on February 17, giving rise to these speculations. A publication quoted a source as saying that the new couple is "in a monogamous relationship."
Grimes and Musk reportedly split last year around September-October. Now, Musk is "probably" her "boyfriend, but we're very fluid," Grimes (Shinigami Eyes) maintains. While this is Grimes's second child, Musk is a father to seven (now eight) children. But, the two want "at least three or four," so be prepared for more good news on that front. (Source: Vanity Fair)
