Canadian musician, Grimes & business, Elon Musk have confirmed their third child together. Check out the announcement post below.
The news heated up on Musk’s upcoming biography Elon Musk, penned by Walter Isaacson, reveals that the former couple have a new son named Techno Mechanicus, according to a review published by The New York Times on Saturday (Sept. 9). The baby has reportedly been given the nickname “Tau.”
On Sunday (Sept. 10), Grimes shares the news via X (formerly Twitter), to address a family matter and subtly confirm that she and Musk have welcomed a third child. “Hey, I wud prefer to not breathe any more life into this current press cycle but I want to de-escalate the narrative atm,” she began, referencing a since-deleted post in which she accused the tech magnate of keeping her from one of their kids, and also took aim at Shivon Zilis, with whom Musk shares twins. “I spoke with Shivon at length finally, which was long overdue. This wasn’t her fault, plz don’t be angry at her! We respect each other a lot and we’re excited to become friends and have the kids grow up together.”
She finished her tweet by pointing out how women are often pitted against each other and confirming the name of her third child, which The New York Times reported is nicknamed “Tau.” “Speaking with Shivon, it’s very evident she’s an amazing human and we both just want what’s best for our kids,” she concluded. “I wish I could show u how cute little Techno is [alien emoji ] but my priority rn is keeping my babies out of the public eye.”
On Saturday night (Sep. 9), Musk also confirmed the news with a tweet, “Tau Techno Mechanicus. Circumference/Diameter” in a reply to a tweet listing the names of his and Grimes’ children.
Previously, Musk and Grimes had two other children together: son X AE A-XII (“X”), who arrived in May 2020, and daughter Exa Dark Sideræl (“Y”), who was born via surrogate in December 2021, after the couple announced they were “semi-separated” in September that year.
