Elon Musk and musician Grimes welcomed their newborn baby boy Monday.

Musk shared a few photos and revealed the baby’s name, X Æ A-12 Musk.

“Mom & baby all good,” Musk tweeted a few hours after he alerted his followers the baby was a “few hours away.”

At the request of fans, Musk shared a photo of the baby by itself with fake ink tattoos on his face and a photo of Musk holding the boy while wearing an “Occupy Mars” shirt.

A Twitter user put together a guess at the pronunciation of the name, which Musk favorited. Æ is a letter in the Scandinavian alphabet and is pronounced Ash, while A-12 is a reconnaissance aircraft with the nickname Archangel.

That seemingly leaves the name to be “X Ash Archangel.” (RELATED: ‘This Is Not Freedom’: Elon Musk Blasts ‘Fascist’ Government Imposed Lockdowns)

Musk and Grimes first began dating in 2018. The pregnancy was first announced in January. Grimes confirmed Musk was the father in an interview with Rolling Stone in March.

“When I first got pregnant, I tried to sleep at a reasonable time, and it actually made me feel really bad,” Grimes revealed about her pregnancy at the time. “I think my kid will be nocturnal. Currently it is! It doesn’t move during the day, only at night.”
