Tesla CEO Elon Musk and musician Grimes have announced the birth of their first child. Elon revealed the news on Twitter, which read, "Mom & baby all good". Musk tweeted that the baby was due on Monday. The Canadian singer described pregnancy as a pretty insane sacrifice, saying that "it's sacrificing your body and your freedom".

As USAToday notes, the baby boy is Grimes's first child and Elon Musk's sixth child.

Although Musk tweeted that the baby is a boy, Grimes has previously stated that she won't be gendering the child.

The tech billionaire shared the first picture of the child, having added a tattoo filter to their face. Musk noted a handful of sale conditions in one of his tweets, saying that "it can not be torn down or lose any its soul". He said that his child will be named "X Æ A-12 Musk". Æ is pronounced "ash", leading Reddit users to suggest the baby's name will be pronounced Sasha Archangel.

"The Lockheed A-12 was part of the Archangel internal design effort".

Grimes also revealed she does not want to "gender" her baby, saying they can "decide their fate and identity' on their own accord".

"I don't want to say the gender of the baby".

"I don't know, I just feel like it doesn't need to be known".

Grimes announced that she was pregnant on Instagram in January. In that case, baby Musk's name would be more like "Xea", pronounced "Zey-ah".
