To Grimes’ son X Æ A-XII Musk, she’s simply Claire.
The 33-year-old musical artist, whose actual identify is Claire Boucher, stated the 16-month-old son she shares with SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk refers to her by identify solely.
“He says Claire, however he doesn’t say Mama,” Boucher stated, referring to her son, who she affectionately referred to as “X.”
She continued: “Perhaps he like, can sense my distaste for the phrase ‘mom.’ Which, I don’t even know why I’ve a distaste for it, as a result of I respect… I simply can’t establish with it, weirdly.”

Boucher and Musk welcomed their first baby collectively in Could 2020, a son named “X Æ A-12 Musk,” which rapidly grew to become a trending subject throughout social media.
The backstory on the newborn’s uncommon identify? Grimes later tweeted a full breakdown:
“•X, the unknown variable
•Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Synthetic intelligence)
•A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favourite plane). No weapons, no defenses, simply velocity. Nice in battle, however non-violent
+ (A=Archangel, my favourite tune) (steel rat)”
The couple tweaked their child’s famed identify shortly after California officers famous it did not comply with state well being codes. Grimes revealed to her followers that the couple had barely modified their son’s identify from “X Æ A-12” to “X Æ A-XII.”

Within the Vogue video, she stated her journey to motherhood “was a form of rebirth for me, like artistically.”
She’s not the one one who enjoys artwork. In October, she stated Child X enjoys “radical art.”
“I’ve watched ‘Apocalypse Now’ and stuff with my child,” she stated. “He is into radical artwork. Like, he simply really is, and I do not assume it is problematic to interact with them on that stage.”
That is Grimes’ first baby. Musk has 5 sons – a set of twins and a set of triplets – from his earlier marriage.
