Elon Musk’s partner Grimes reveals new baby daughter ‘Y’

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk and the musician Grimes have had a second child, a girl they named Exa Dark Sideræl Musk — although the parents will mostly call her Y.

The 33-year-old Grimes revealed the existence of the child, who was born in December, in an interview published Thursday by Vanity Fair.

And she did so by accident, it seems: the magazine reporter said he heard what sounded like a baby crying upstairs during the interview at Grimes’ home in Texas and after Grimes first winced and acted evasively, she finally confirmed that, yes, she was a mom again.

Due to fears that she would have complications, which Grimes said she endured during her first pregnancy, the parents decided this time to use a surrogate.

The birth of their first child, a boy born in May 2020, was followed closely in the press — notably because of the choice of name: X Æ A-12, or more simply, X.

Elon Musk — the head of Tesla and SpaceX, and currently the richest person in the world — announced last fall that he was “semi-separated” from the singer. 

“I would probably refer to him as my boyfriend, but we’re very fluid,” Grimes told Vanity Fair. 

The eclectic artist, whose real name is Claire Boucher, added that she and Musk live in separate houses but remain “best friends.”

“We see each other all the time… We just have our own thing going on, and I don’t expect other people to understand it,” she said.

Grimes said she and Musk plan to have more children: “We’ve always wanted at least three or four,” she said.

The name Exa Dark Sideræl, Grimes explained, includes multiple references to space and technology: she said Exa refers to supercomputing; Sideræl, a more “elven” spelling of sidereal — this word means involving distant stars — and Dark, for “the unknown.”

“Dark matter is the beautiful mystery of our universe,” said Grimes, who did not rule out that her daughter might want to change her name in the future.

Grimes also said she hopes to keep her daughter out of the public spotlight.

“The best situation here is me training the girl and him training the boy,” she told Vanity Fair at her home in Austin, Texas.

After recently selling all of his Los Angeles real estate, Musk has stated that his main residence is now in southern Texas, at SpaceX’s rocket manufacturing and launch site.

In November, the blond-headed X could be seen sitting in his father’s lap during a virtual presentation on the space company’s new rocket.

Musk, 50, has been divorced three times and has had eight children, including one baby who died at only 10 weeks of age.

Meta Could be Exploring Paid Blue Checkmarks on Facebook and Instagram

Meta Could be Exploring Paid Blue Checkmarks on Facebook and Instagram

It seems like Elon Musk’s chaotic management approach at Twitter is having some broader impacts, with more companies reportedly considering lay-offs in the wake of Musk culling 70% of Twitter staff (and keeping the app running), and Meta now apparently also considering charging for blue checkmarks in its apps.

Yes, the Twitter Blue approach to making people pay for verification, which hasn’t proven overly popular on Twitter itself, is now also seemingly in consideration at Meta as well.

According to a new finding by reverse engineering pro Alessandro Paluzzi, there’s a new mention in the codebase of both Facebook and Instagram of a ‘paid blue badge’.

Paluzzi also shared a screenshot of the code with TechCrunch:

That does appear to refer to a subscription service for both apps, which could well give you a blue verification badge as a result.

Mets has neither confirmed nor denied the project, but it does seem, at least on the surface, that it’s considering offering checkmarks as another paid option – which still seems strange, considering the original purpose of verification, which is to signify noteworthy people or profiles in the app.

If people can just buy that, then it’s no longer of any value, right?

Evidently, that’s not the case, and with Twitter already bringing in around $7 million per quarter from Twitter Blue subscriptions, maybe Meta’s looking for a means to supplement its own intake, and make up for lost ad dollars and/or rising costs of its metaverse development.

It seems counter-intuitive, but I guess, if people will pay, and the platforms aren’t concerned about there being confusion as to what the blue ticks actually mean.

I guess, more money is good?

Meta has, in the past, said that it won’t charge a subscription fee to access its apps. But this, of course, would be supplemental – users wouldn’t have to pay, but they could buy a blue checkmark if they wanted, and use the implied value of recognition for their own purposes.

Which seems wrong, but tough times, higher costs – maybe every app needs to start digging deeper.

Meta hasn’t provided any info or confirmation at this stage, but we’ll keep you updated on any progress.
