Elon Musk and Grimes break the internet with news of their unusual baby name

Posted in Birth.

Congratulations to recording artist Grimes (Claire Boucher) and entrepreneur Elon Musk on the safe arrival of their first child together!

The Tesla billionaire announced the arrival of his seventh son – yep, you read that right – on Twitter, just hours after his partner, Grimes, gave birth. In response to a fan’s request, he shared a photo of himself, holding his newborn baby wrapped in a hospital blanket.

He then shared a snap of his newborn with a fun filter:

Elon also replied to an Aussie fan from Illawarra NSW, saying:

Grimes posted on Instagram on February 1 2020, that she’d experienced some health problems, and didn’t really know what she was getting into with pregnancy. She suggested that pregnancy should be talked about more, calling on fans to share their experiences.

Fake or real? Haha. Wow I’m starting to feel bad haha… how do y’all cope with working and having a baby?? I’m sorry I haven’t been promoting my album properly or on social media more. This whole thing has been a bit of an ordeal. Had some complications early on, a decent second trimester but starting to hurt everywhere at 25 wksz. What were yalls experience w this stuff like? I feel like I was woefully ill prepared cuz I dunno if pregnancy is as visible or discussed as it should be. I just didn’t rly understand what I was getting into. It’s been good too, but it makes working a lot harder. Good at writing and having lots of wild ideas tho, but anything physical is hard. Im also way more emo and less capable of bravery in the face of haters online and stuff haha. But my albums out in a sec so I prob need to get back on here. Don’t mind my emo energy, but curious what other ppls experience was like 🤍🐁🍼 I didn’t even google it, I was just like sure y not hahaha smh
