When it comes to the “most controversial baby name,” Elon Musk and his girlfriend, singer Grimes, apparently take the cake, according to Gwyneth Paltrow.
Musk, 48, confirmed on Monday that he and Grimes, 32, had welcomed a son, sharing a photo of the baby on Twitter and also revealing his name: X Æ A-12.
And in an Instagram post shared by InStyle magazine on Friday, the media posted a photo of the couple with the caption: #elonmusk explained how to pronounce the name of his baby and #grimes, X Æ A-12. #linkinbio and good luck… “
ELON MUSK CORRECTS THE EXPLANATION OF GRIMES FROM THE VERY UNIQUE NAME OF THEIR SON
Paltrow – who shares his 15-year-old daughter Apple and 14-year-old son Moses with ex Chris Martin – couldn’t help but ring the bell, writing in the comments section: “#chrismartin I think we were beaten for the most controversial baby name, “according to a screenshot from commentsbycelebs.
Musk explained exactly how to pronounce his new baby’s name on Thursday during an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast.
“First of all, it was my partner who mostly came up with the name,” he said. “It’s just‘ X ’, the letter‘ X ’and the‘ Æ ’is pronounced‘ ash ’and then‘ A-12 ’is my contribution. Archangel 12, the forerunner of the SR-71, the coolest aircraft of all time. “

Grimes also consulted Twitter earlier this week to decompose the baby’s name, letter by letter.
“X, the unknown variable,” wrote the singer, adding an emoji of two crossed swords. “Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love and / or artificial intelligence). “
“A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite plane). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in combat, but not violent, “she continued, adding a white-hearted emoji. “(A = Archangel, my favorite song) (metal rat). “
Musk then commented on the tweet, correcting the plane she was referring to.
“SR-71, but yes,” he writes.
