“Mom & baby all good,” the businessman wrote on Twitter four hours following a tweet that read: “A few hours away!”

The Tesla CEO revealed on Twitter that the couple are proud parents of a baby boy.

He also announced the baby’s name by telling his fans his son was called “X Æ A-12 Musk.”

While the baby is the first for Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, Musk has five sons from a previous marriage. His first son, Nevada, passed away of SIDS at 10 weeks old in 2002.

Weeks after pregnancy rumors began spreading with a baby bump photo in early January, the Canadian singer confirmed she was expecting in a candid post shared on her Instagram later that same month.

When she asked her followers how they “cope with working and having a baby,” Grimes wrote in the caption of a selfie, “I’m sorry I haven’t been promoting my album properly or on social media more. This whole thing has been a bit of an ordeal.”

“Had some complications early on, a decent second trimester but starting to hurt everywhere at 25 wksz,” she continued. “I feel like I was woefully ill prepared cuz I dunno if pregnancy is as visible or discussed as it should be. I just didn’t rly understand what I was getting into.”

Grimes confirmed Musk was the baby’s father in a digital March cover story for Rolling Stone, saying,  “I do actually just really love my boyfriend,” and explained when she welcomed the idea of getting pregnant, “So I was like, ‘You know, sure.’”

She spoke further about her two-year relationship with Musk, and told the publication, “No one believes me about this, but I just did not understand what I was getting into at all.”

“Not that I’m mad about it. I just didn’t think it would be a thing,” Grimes said. “The s— that’s happened with my boyfriend this year has overwritten so much of my life’s work.”

The singer added that despite trying “to sleep at a reasonable time” at the beginning of her pregnancy, it “actually made me feel really bad.”

Grimes thinks their “kid will be nocturnal.”

“Currently it is! It doesn’t move during the day, only at night,” she said.
