Elon Musk And Grimes Welcomed Daughter Exa Dark Sideræl Musk In December 2021

Elon Musk and Grimes have been keeping a major family affair quiet from the world. In a March ‘Vanity Fair’ cover story, Grimes said they welcomed a daughter named Exa Dark Sideræl Musk in December 2021. Due to fear of serious complications, Grimes opted to go the surrogate route. Exa, nicknamed Y, is the couple’s second child together. They welcomed their son,X Æ A-12, nicknamed X, in May 2020.
A Mistake Reveal 

Grimes didn’t intend to reveal their newest bundle of joy. The writer of the ‘Vanity Fair’ piece, Devin Gordon, happened to be interviewing Grimes in her home when Y began to cry. When Devin asked, “Do you have another baby in your life, Grimes,” she reportedly clenched and looked away. But after a conversation about the ethics of sharing the news and more infant screams from Y, the mama loosened up on the topic.

She spoke on her pregnancy with X and the serious complications she faced. She experienced pressure on her nerves that made it difficult to walk at eight months pregnant. The condition caused her to repeatedly collapse and use crawling to move around. At one point, Grimes also hemorrhaged.

Their Daughter’s Name Explained

Later, Grimes revealed her daughter’s name to Devin via text. Apparently, Exa is a reference to a supercomputing term. Dark represents “the unknown,” given that the singer believes dark matter is “the beautiful mystery of our universe.” Sideræl, pronounced sigh-deer-ee-el, represents deep space time versus our Earth time and Grimes’ love for ‘Lord of the Rings’ character Galadriel.

And while the name might feel exotic to some, it was a compromise for Grimes. Apparently, the mama of two worries that “it’s a little boring.” Instead, she was first hoping to fulfill her dream of naming a daughter Odysseus.

A Unique Relationship 

The news came as a surprise given that last fall Elon seemingly confirmed break-up rumors. He told ‘Time’ they were “probably semi-separated.” But in the recently released interview, Grimes revealed there’s no real word for their current arrangement.

“There’s no real word for it,” she said. “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.”

And if you’re wondering, Grimes says they’re happy. She explained that “This is the best it’s ever been…. We just need to be free.” Grimes also said they plan to have at least 3 or 4 more kids in the future.
