Elon Musk and Grimes have needed to change the title 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 infant title due to Californian legal guidelines? What’s the child’s new title?” therealsainti requested her in a touch upon a photograph unrelated to her child.
Grimes replied with the brand new title — “X Æ A-Xii” — however didn’t elaborate on the main points behind the change.
