Elon Musk and Grimes have needed to change the identify of their child son from “X Æ A-12” to “X Æ A-Xii”.
Grimes revealed the change Sunday on Instagram. “Did you modify the child identify due to Californian legal guidelines? What’s the child’s new identify?” therealsainti requested her in a touch upon a photograph unrelated to her child.
Grimes replied with the brand new identify — “X Æ A-Xii” — however didn’t elaborate on the small print behind the change.
