The 48-year-old was asked by one follower to reveal the name of his new son.

Musk replied: “X Æ A-12 Musk” and later shared a photograph of the newborn that featured illustrated graphics on top.

The sleeping baby was pictured with the words “Savage” written under his eye among other graphics.

“Congrats!” wrote one follower in response to the photo, to which Musk teasingly replied: “Thanks :) Never too young for some ink haha.”

Grimes hinted that she was pregnant in January with a picture on Instagram that showed her posing with a digitally-superimposed image of a foetus visible through her translucent stomach.

During a livestream on Twitch in February, she said that the baby's due date was May 4.

Grimes also revealed that she does not want to 'gender' her baby, saying they can "decide their fate and identity' on their own accord.
