When this reporter asked Elon Musk how his son is doing, Elon was confused as to what or who the reporter was talking about.
“How’s X Æ A-12?” asked the reporter.
“Sorry?” Elon replied, not recognizing what the off-cam reporter was talking about. The reporter then repeated his question.
“Oh, you mean my kid!” replied Elon with a laugh. “That sounds like a password,” he remarked.
Musk and the reporter both laughed it off, thankfully making it much less awkward than it had the potential to be.
He added: "He's great! I think next time I am going to bring him, maybe come back in a few months and bring him along."
But how does one properly pronounce X Æ A-12?
When Joe Rogan asked Musk how to pronounce the baby's name on his podcast back in May, he tried to clear things up a bit.
Speaking on the show, he said: "I mean it's just X, the letter X. And then, the Æ is, like, pronounced 'Ash'. And then, A-12, A-12 is my contribution. Archangel 12, the precursor to the SR-71, is the coolest plane ever."
That, or you could just call the baby by his nickname — Little X.
Speaking to Bloomberg, first-time mother and musician Grimes - real name Claire Elise Boucher - confirmed that the little guy's nickname is 'Little X'.
Yep, that makes sense. Sounds like a rapper, or maybe a wrestler.
Well, I guess I’ll just stick with the nickname. What about you?
