A secret birth of a daughter from on-again, off-again partners Elon Musk and Grimes has been revealed by the musician herself, who said their second baby was delivered via surrogate in December.
The baby, a girl whose full name is Exa Dark Sideræl, is being called “Y” to fit with her older brother X Æ A-Xii, pronounced “X Ash A-12” or “X A.I. Archangel,” who they call "Baby X." The girl is Grimes’ second child and Musk’s seventh and only daughter.
The baby was born just a few months after the pair called it quits in September 2021. According to a Thursday report from Vanity Fair, Grimes says the two are still together and had always planned on having multiple children. She relocated to Austin, a short drive from the Tesla factory, full-time around the time of her daughter's birth in December.
“There’s no real word for it… I would probably refer to him as my boyfriend, but we’re very fluid. We live in separate houses,” Grimes told Vanity Fair. “We’re best friends. We see each other all the time… We just have our own thing going on, and I don’t expect other people to understand it.”
The baby was discovered by Vanity Fair’s Devin Gordon, who heard the baby crying when he visited Grimes’ home for an interview. Grimes initially said she wasn’t “at liberty to speak on” the matter before admitting the baby was “a little colicky.”
The couple decided to use a surrogate after Grimes experienced complications during her pregnancy with X. Grimes said that Musk views their 2-year-old son as a protégé and frequently brings him along to public events.
Just last month, Musk was said to be dating 24-year-old Australian actress Natasha Bassett, who was reportedly joining him back and forth on work trips to Austin.
