You’ll be forgiven if you thought Elon Musk and Grimes broke up last year, because i’m pretty sure they did. But you’ll also be forgiven if you couldn’t care less.
Pop star Grimes and her Tesla billionaire on-and-off partner have secretly welcomed a second child via surrogate.
The Canadian singer shared the news of the couple’s break up only hours after her Vanity Fair cover story was released, tweeting:
“Me and E have broken up *again* since the writing of this article haha, but he’s my best friend and the love of my life, and my life and art are forever dedicated to The Mission now,”
Grimes confirmed in the interview with Vanity Fair that the baby girl was born in December. She went on to explain her ‘relationship’ with Musk, saying:
“I would probably refer to him as my boyfriend, but we’re very fluid. We live in separate houses. 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,”
Despite the break up, it would seem that the couple are still planning to expand their family, saying they have “always wanted at least three or four” children together.
After the name they gave their first-born child, son X Æ A-12 (who they call X), there was absolutely no chance the couple were going to opt for a conventional name the second time around.
The name? Exa Dark Sideræl of course.
And we even know what it means.
Exa refers to the supercomputing term exaFLOPS, which is ‘the ability to perform one quintillion floating-point operations per second’.
Dark is a reference to dark matter and ‘the unknown’.
Sideræl, which is pronounced sigh-deer-ee-el, is a ‘more elven spelling’ of sidereal, which Grimes describes as ‘the true time of the universe, star time, deep space time, not our relative earth time’
And one thing that is pretty cool, is that the newest born with be referred to as Y… which means they now have X&Y.
