Grimes’ baby boy X AE A-Xii must really be his father’s son as she has shared a sweet photo of her child playing with a book about space.
The Oblivion singer welcomed her first child with Space X founder Elon in May and caused a stir with the tot’s unusual name.
It seems X AE A-Xii – pronounced X Ash A 12 – is developing at an impressive pace as it looks like he’s already trying to read.
In her recent Instagram story, Grimes shared a cute image of her son sitting on a bed with his hands on the book, which was teaching him all about the Hubble Space Telescope. A soft toy was seen nearby but clearly X AE A-Xii has more sophisticated interests like learning science.
It comes after Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, shared some of X AE A-Xii’s other hobbies which apparently include radical art and watching Apocalypse Now.
Speaking to New York Times, Grimes said: ‘They [babies] definitely like some things. They don’t like other things. They fully have opinions.
‘I’ve watched Apocalypse Now and stuff with my baby. He’s into radical art. Like, he just actually is, and I don’t think it’s problematic to engage with them on that level.’
The 32-year-old musician also addressed her approach to parenting and said: ‘I don’t want your first introduction to the world to just be all this aimless crap.
‘I’m not insulting babies. I’m just – it’s all very one vibe.’
It shouldn’t come as a surprise considering X AE A-Xii’s father Elon founded Tesla and Space X, which are two of the most innovative companies around.
Elon, 49, also recently opened up on fatherhood and admitted Grimes was doing most of the heavy-lifting at the moment.
‘Right now there’s not much I can do,’ he confessed.
‘Well, babies are just eating and pooping machines, you know? Grimes has a much bigger role than me right now.’
The entrepreneur continued: ‘When the kid gets older, there will be more of a role for me.
‘I think just doing what I’ve done with my other kids. If I have a trip for Tesla to China, for example, I’ll bring the kids with me and we’ll go see the Great Wall or we took the bullet train from Beijing to Xian and saw the Terracotta Warriors.’
Elon is already a father to five children who he shares with his ex-wife Justine Wilson. However, their first child died of sudden infant death syndrome.
