We still don't quite know how to pronounce X Æ A-12's name, but he certainly looks comfortable at home with his doting parents Grimes and Elon Musk.

Recently, Gwyneth Paltrow also joked that Grimes and Elon Musk beat her and Chris Martin for the most controversial baby name as the 47-year-old actress too came under the radar when she named her daughter Apple and her son Moses.

X Æ A-12 Musk was the sixth child of Elon Musk, and was born as the first child of Grimes.

Musk addressed the question during Thursday's (May 7) episode of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast. Musk added that this plane is the "coolest airplane ever'".

It comes as Grimes - whose real name is Claire Elise Boucher - recently explained the meaning of her newborn's moniker, X Æ A-12.

She had also explained that "A" in the name represents "Archangel", which she said was her favourite song. Musk has 5 kids from a former marriage and his first son has passed away suddenly when he aged just 10 weeks in 2002.

The state on Monday reported an additional 161 deaths, a number Cuomo says is "still too high, but better than it has been". Numbers across the state measuring things like new hospitalizations and deaths related to the pandemic continue to be down.

Heading to Twitter on Sunday night the grandmother offered her congratulations as she welcomed her new grandchild's birth, and revealed that she refers to the baby as "X". No weapons, no defences, just speed.

Elon, 48, revealed that he "appreciates" being an older dad and is besotted with little X Æ A-12. "Babies are awesome. They're little lovebugs, wonderful, it's great". "Great in battle, but non-violent", she continued, adding a white heart emoji.

He wrote: "SR-71, but yes", in reference to the aircraft and it didn't take Grimes, 32, long to put him in his place.

Following the congratulatory tweet, Musk replied to the tweet, writing: "Love you mom". "That was meant to be profound (sic)".

Elon Musk and Grimes attend the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 7, 2018 in New York City.
