Just like Tesla CEO Elon Musk, his and musician Grimes’ baby X Æ A-Xii or X Æ A-X12 is a social media sensation. Since his birth last May, the little one has been a social media crowd puller
with users discussing everything about the baby. Now, if the child’s unique name was not enough to pique interest in him, the little one has now taken to playing keyboards, making his parents proud and leaving netizens in awe of the kid’s talents.
Msuk’s Canadian musician partner Claire Elise Boucher, known professionally as Grimes celebrated her 33rd birthday on March 17 and the musician wrote that the kid, all of 10 months, surprised his mom with a loop on her keyboard.
The singer wrote, “It’s my Bday!!! Also lil X made a loop on my keyboard? Prob an accident but tbh he played a super fire set just now.”
Grimes also shared a couple of photos from her birthday celebration that involved a tattoo session with her friends. Watch the second photo slide for the baby’s music.
The adorable video shows the kid intently navigating through the various buttons and keys on the electronic keyboard and also smiling at the end of the video.
In last May, Musk announced the birth of the baby boy in a post on Twitter, revealing his son was called “X Æ A-12 Musk.”
However, speculation arose that the unusual moniker might fall foul of the law in California, where the couple live, as names can only use the 26 alphabetical characters of the English language, according to the state constitution. The couple later on found the escape route to avoid changing their child’s name. X Æ A-12 Musk and renamed the kid AE A-XII Musk. The pronunciation remained the same, just that the Roman numerals helped them retain it.
The couple had on previous occasions explained the baby’s name. Grimes had said that the ‘X’ stands for “the unknown variable.” “Æ” is the Elven spelling of AI, which is shorthand for artificial intelligence and the word for “love” in several languages, including Japanese.
“A-12 = precursor to SR-17 is the couple’s favorite aircraft. The “A” in the name also represents “Archangel,” which she described as her favorite song.
