Elon Musk shared the first photos of his newborn baby with singer Grimes on Tuesday – the singer’s first child and his sixth son.
One showed him cradling the baby in his arms at the hospital and the other showed his son lying in bed with a tattoo filter applied.
Elon, 48, made the decision to publish the image after a fan wrote, “A picture of you holding the baby would break the Internet … please share one. “

Tesla’s CEO announced the happy news of his baby’s arrival via Twitter, tweeting Monday night, “Mom and baby are fine.”
In response to a user’s Tweet that said, “We need the name we literally need,” said Elon, “X Æ A-12 Musk.”
The latest: Tesla CEO, 48, tweeted, “Mom and baby are fine,” after Grimes, 32, gave birth.
It was not immediately clear if new daddy Musk was having fun with his followers with this tweet, which appeared to be partially inspired by one of the songs from Grimes’ latest album, 32 – 4ÆM.
The tech mogul is the father of five sons from his previous marriage. Tragically, Musk lost his first Nevada child in 2002 at 10 weeks because of SIDS.
Grimes publicly exposed her pregnancy with a snapshot of a baby on social media in January, and then openly talked about her pregnancy with followers.
Artist So Heavy I Fell Through the Earth wrote: “I’m sorry I didn’t promote my album properly or on social media. It was all a bit of an ordeal. “

Artsy: Grimes in January publicly revealed the news with a photo of a baby bump on social media
She added that she had “had some complications from the start” and had completed “a decent second trimester” but that she was suffering at 25 weeks.
“I feel like I was unprepared because I don’t know if the pregnancy is as visible or discussed as it should be,” she said. ” I did not do it [really] understand what I was getting into.
In March, she told Rolling Stone about her romance with the innovator SpaceX, which started two years ago this month: “Actually, I really like my boyfriend. “
In the chat with the publication, the Canadian beauty said that she “just doesn’t understand what I’m getting into” when dating the famous businessman.
“No one believes me on this,” she said. “Not that I’m crazy about it. I just didn’t think it would be a thing. The s *** that happened with my boyfriend this year has overwhelmed much of my life’s work.
Grimes in February said she wanted to let her baby choose her own gender identity.
When asked if she was expecting a boy or girl during a live YouTube broadcast (which has since been made private), the music artist said, “I don’t mean the baby’s gender … because I feel that their privacy must be protected.
“I don’t think they can agree to be famous or to be in public. “
Grimes also revealed that she did not want to “sex” her baby, saying they could “decide their fate and identity” on their own.
“I don’t want to differentiate them in case it isn’t what they feel in their lives,” she said. “I don’t know, I just feel like it doesn’t need to be known … They can decide their fate and their identity. “
