Grimes, a Canadian musician, and artist, accidentally announced the birth of her second child via surrogate with Tesla co-founder and CEO Elon Musk.
According to Grimes in an exclusive interview with Vanity Fair, Exa Dark Siderl Musk (pronounced sigh-deer-ee-el) was born in December. Their daughter is also referred to as “Y” by the couple.
Exa is a reference to exaFLOPS, and the new child’s name is complicated (or the ability of supercomputers to perform 1 quintillion floating-point operations per second). Siderl is a “more elven” pronunciation of sidereal, the timekeeping system astronomers use to locate cosmic objects.
Dark refers to the unknown, and Siderl is a “more elven” pronunciation of sidereal, the timekeeping scheme astronomers use to discover celestial objects. Grimes’ favorite Lord of the Rings character, Galadriel, is also referred to as Siderl.
Vanity Fair reporter Devin Gordon did hear the unmistakable sound of a baby crying while undergoing an interview at Grimes’ home in Austin, Texas. He knew the baby’s cry wasn’t from the couple’s first child, X A-12, born in May 2020.
“I’m not at liberty to talk on these things,” Grimes said at first when asked about the baby. Whatever is going on in the family, I believe the kids should be kept out of it, and X is just out there.”
She eventually admitted to having their daughter through a surrogate.
The birth of Y follows news that Grimes, 33, and Musk, 50, split in 2021 after three years of dating.
Grimes told Vanity Fair that her relationship with Musk is “fluid” and that the two of them live in separate houses. She also stated that she and Musk want to have more children, adding that they “have always wanted at least three or four.”
Many individuals used social media to comment on their daughter’s name, just as they did when the couple’s first child, X A-12, was born.
