Grimes Baby X AE A-XII just got his first haircut as the pop star mom gave him an at-home hair trim and shared the outcome of the exercise with his followers on her Instagram Stories on Thursday.
“Not sure this haircut went well but he’s Viking now,” the “Delete Forever” singer captioned a picture of her 8-month-old son, whom she shares with her partner Elon Musk, sporting a new mohawk-style ‘do in the bathtub.
Grimes also shared a photo of herself trimming off her baby boy’s locks with scissors while noting that the cut was inspired by the historical British TV series “The Last Kingdom.”
She said, “Haircut inspired by the last kingdom on Netflix which is a masterpiece.”
Grimes and Musk welcomed their first baby in May 2020. The couple at first named the baby “X Æ A-12 Musk,” but later reconsidered after pressure from law to change it to “X AE A-XII”, as special characters and numbers are prohibited by California law.
Grimes previously tweeted that the X is the “unknown variable” in algebra, while the Æ (now AE) refers to the “elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence).” The A-12 (now A-XII) at the end was inspired by the Lockheed Archangel-12 aircraft.
I know you’re probably wondering how it’s pronounced, addressing the pronunciation, Musk told podcast host Rogan, “I mean it’s just X, the letter X. And then, the Æ is, like, pronounced ‘Ash’… and then, A-12, A-12 is my contribution.”
“My partner is the one that, actually, mostly, came up with the name. Yeah, she’s great at names,” the Tesla boss said.
