BILLIONAIRE Elon Musk and his girlfriend Grimes have welcomed a baby boy, the Tesla co-founder confirmed today.
It's the 31-year-old singer's first child and Musk's seventh.
Who is baby Musk?
On May 5, 2020, Elon Musk and his partner Grimes announced the arrival of their little boy.
When Musk's followers pressed him for a name, he joked that the newborn is called "X Æ A-12 Musk."
The name appeared to be partially inspired by one of the songs from 32-year-old Grimes' last album – 4ÆM.
The Tesla CEO, 48, posted a cute snap of their sleeping baby using a face tattoo filter, as well as one of him cradling the newborn at the hospital.
Responding to a fan who said their son is "gorgeous", Musk joked about the tattoos: "Thanks 🙂 Never too young for some ink haha."
Grimes announced she was pregnant in January, and Musk had previously said the baby was expected to arrive Monday.
"Mom & baby all good," Musk wrote in a short Twitter post on Monday, May 4.
Who are Musk's other children?
South African tech mogul Musk has six sons from his previous marriage.
All of the boys were born while he was married to his first wife, Justine Wilson.
The pair separated in 2008 after eight years.
Their first child, Nevada Alexander Musk, died of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) at the age of 10 weeks.
The couple later had five sons through IVF – twins Griffin and Xavier, who were born in 2004, followed by triplets Kai, Saxon and Damian in 2006.
Little is known about the boys.
However, it is known that the couple share custody.
And in a previous interview, Ms Wilson said: "Almost all of my non-work waking hours are spent with my boys, and they are the love of my life.”
Musk has never spoken publicly about his life with his sons.
After he and his first wife divorced, Musk married English actress Talulah Riley in 2010 and remarried her in 2013 after the pair briefly divorced in 2012.
The pair finally divorced for the second time in October 2016.
Actress Amber Heard, who is divorced from Johnny Depp, was in an on-off relationship with Musk.
Musk is in a relationship with Grimes, 31, aka Claire Boucher.
The couple made their debut at the Met Gala in May 2018.
Who is Elon Musk?
Elon Musk was born in Pretoria, South Africa in 1971.
As a 12-year-old child he taught himself computer programming and sold the code of a video game to a PC magazine for $500 (£300).
At 17, he moved to Canada to study, before gaining two degrees in physics and business at the University of Pennsylvania.
At the age of 24 he moved to California to start a Ph.D. in applied physics and material science at Stanford University – but left the programme after just two days to pursue other projects.
Now 47, he is the founder and CEO of SpaceX, co-founder, CEO and product architect of Tesla Motors, co-founder and chairman of SolarCity, co-chairman of Opan AI, co-founder of Zip2 and founder of X.com, which merged with PayPal.
His stated aim is to reduce global warming and save humans from extinction by setting up a colony on Mars.
The billionaire inventor is also working on the world's largest lithium-ion battery to store renewable energy.
In addition to his primary business pursuits, Musk has envisioned a high-speed transportation system known as the Hyperloop, and has proposed a vertical take-off and landing supersonic jet electric aircraft with electric fan propulsion, known as the Musk electric jet.
Last year, he faced a defamation case brought by hero Brit diver Vernon Unsworth.
Musk had branded Unsworth a "child rapist" in an explosive email after the cave expert helped rescue a trapped Thai youth football team in 2018.
He was cleared of defamation.
