grimes and elon musk officially name their son x ae a xii on his birth certificate

Grimes and Elon Musk have officially named their son X AE A-XII Musk on his birth certificate.

The eccentric couple had to slightly adapt their firstborn’s moniker to comply with California law.

The Canadian singer, 32 – real name Claire Elise Boucher – and the Tesla CEO, 48, had previously announced their newborn’s name was X Æ A-12.

But birth names in California must only contain letters from the English alphabet, with no numbers or special characters, TMZ have reported.

The parents have therefore had to change the character Æ, which is used in Norwegian and Danish and is often pronounced ‘Ash’, to ‘AE’ in their son’s name.

The final part of his unusual name, A-12, named after a 1960s spy plane, has been changed to Roman numerals to comply with state law.

It comes after Grimes told Bloomberg her nickname for baby X Æ A-12 is ‘Little X’. 

She explained the name on Twitter after his birth: ‘X, the unknown variable. Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence). A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent + (A=Archangel, my favorite song) (metal rat).’

The Miss Anthropocene artist clarified that the bizarre moniker is pronounced: ‘Ex Ash A Twelve.’ 

On paper: She recently had the name changed to X AE A-Xii for the birth certificate, which was obtained by The Blast

But Musk disagreed, as he said it was ‘Ex Ash Archangel Twelve’ on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

In a two hour long chat, the billionaire broke down the name of his newborn before doubling down on his pledge to sell his possessions, telling Rogan he will rent a home. He said: ‘What’s the worst that can happen?’ 

Musk told Rogan: ‘First of all, my partner is the one that, actually, mostly, came up with the name. Yeah, she’s great at names.

When asked to explain the choice Musk replied: ‘I mean it’s just X, the letter X. And then, the Æ is, like, pronounced ‘Ash’.

‘And then, A-12, A-12 is my contribution. Archangel 12, the precursor to the SR-71, is the coolest plane ever’, he added.

He also admitted the name was mostly Grimes’ idea, adding: ‘A-12 was my contribution. The Archangel-12, the precursor to the SR-71, the coolest plane ever.’

Grimes welcomed X Æ A-12 on May 4 with Musk, 48, who also shares six sons with ex-wife Justine Wilson, one of whom died at 10 weeks of SIDS.

Their first child, Nevada Alexander Musk, died of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) when he was just 10 weeks old.

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. 

After the couple announced the birth of X Æ A-12, many Twitter users sent out tweets poking fun of the unusual name.

‘That’s going to be tough on the teacher,’ one joked.

‘It’s pronounced “Rachel”‘, another deadpanned.

Meanwhile another wrote about X Æ A-12’s name: ‘That awkward moment when all names are taken, so you smash all the keys on the keyboard.’

Musk, who has a reported net worth of $37 billion, began dating Grimes in 2018 after they met at that year’s Met Gala.

He added, ‘As a victim of sexual abuse as a child, I know all too well the pain of experiencing this type of abuse and the difficulties it can create for life after such trauma,.

‘My heart goes out to all who may be affected by this behavior from adults.’

He went on to say that it should ‘never happen to a child.’

And he added he was ‘broken to pieces.’ Marshall then urged adults who wanted to prey on children to get ‘major psychological help.’

It ruins lives and damages people, he stressed in his note. ‘We must do better,’ he said. 

‘Like everyone we are shocked by this news. Any abuse of minors is a terrible crime and we respect the legal process,’ Netlfix said in a statement.

On Thursday, Harris was arrested on child pornography charges, just days after 14-year-old cheerleading twin brothers in Texas filed a lawsuit alleging he solicited sexually explicit photos from them for a year and asked one of them for oral sex.

He faced federal court in Chicago later on Thursday and will be held until a detention hearing on Monday.

The production of child pornography charge is related to allegations of inappropriate conduct with the twin he tried to solicit oral sex from. 

Prosecutors say Harris admitted in an interview with FBI agents this week that he had asked the boy, who was then 13, to send him photographs and videos of his penis and buttocks on Snapchat.

Harris also allegedly admitted to soliciting explicit photos from dozens of other underage boys and engaging in a sex act with a 15-year-old at a cheer competition.

The 28-page criminal complaint related to his arrest, which came just days after the FBI raided his home in Naperville, Illinois, contains a number of screenshots of Harris’ exchanges with both twins.

The boys, Charlie and Sam, are not identified in the criminal complaint but they gave an interview to USA Today this week speaking about the allegations after filing the lawsuit. 

The allegations stem from complaints made by 14-year-old twin boys in Texas who are also competitive cheerleaders. The boys, Charlie and Sam, are not identified in the criminal complaint but they gave an interview to USA Today this week speaking about the allegations

The FBI started investigating after the allegations were reported to authorities by Varsity, which is the global authority of competitive cheerleading. 

Agents interviewed the two boys in late August. The mother of the twins found text messages and the explicit images and videos on her sons’ phones in February, according to the complaint.  

In the criminal complaint, Harris is accused of contacting both boys on social media as early as 2018 and soliciting explicit images from both of them. 

The complaint says that Harris sent this photo to one of the boys on Snapchat asking: 'Would you ever want to ***'. The boy told authorities he interpreted this as Harris asking him to engage in sex acts

One of the boys, identified as Minor 2, told authorities that he always refused to send Harris any explicit images. 

The other boy, identified as Minor 1, said he sent more than a dozen sexually explicit photos and videos to Harris, at his request, on Snapchat between December 2018 and March 2020. 

Harris, who was 19 at the time, is also accused of sending the boy explicit images of himself and footage of him masturbating. 

The boy claims Harris also once asked him for oral sex in bathroom when they both attended a cheer competition in February 2019.  

The complaint says Harris first contacted the boy on Instagram in 2018 who told him he was only 13. Harris allegedly responded: 'Oh ok have any pics?', before adding the photos should be of his face and 'booty'

Three months later, Harris allegedly sent the boy a text message saying he had ‘found a place for us to do stuff’ at another cheer competition. The boy told authorities that he understood that to mean Harris wanted to engage in sex acts with him. 

The boy denied Harris’ requests for sex acts on both occasions, according to the complaint.

Harris allegedly responded: ‘Oh ok have any pics?’, before adding the photos should be of his face and ‘booty’.

The boy told investigators that Harris then asked him to communicate on Snapchat going forward. 

In one exchange, the boy posted a photo on social media of himself doing a cheerleading maneuver called ‘the needle’. 

He told investigators that Harris forwarded him the photo on Snapchat and asked: ‘Do it naked and take a video and show me.’ 

The other twin, Minor 2, told investigators that Harris had contacted him on Snapchat and asked him to send ‘nude pictures’ of himself and photos ‘naked with your butt.’

‘I don’t think we should be friends on Snap,’ Harris said.  When the boy asked why, Harris responded: ‘I’m sorry for what I’ve done in the past. I don’t think it’s a good idea we be friends on Snap.’ 

Harris was the breakout star of the show that followed the cheerleading team from Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas, as it sought a national title.

Cheer was an instant success when it was released in January and Harris drew fans for his upbeat attitude and his encouraging ‘mat talk’. 

Earlier this year, he interviewed celebrities on the red carpet at the Academy Awards for The Ellen DeGeneres Show. In the lawsuit filed by the twin boys, they described a pattern of harassment from Harris both online and at cheer competitions that they say lasted a year.  

Besides accusing Harris of sexual misconduct, the lawsuit alleges that cheer organizations failed to protect the boys.
