The first video of Grimes and Elon Musk's baby, X Æ A-12, has been shared by the new mom on Instagram! In the heartwarming clip, baby X is curled up on Musk's chest, while the Tesla cofounder gently pats his back, burping him. Grimes added the two-hearts emoji over the intimate scene.

Grimes and Musk welcomed baby X, their first child together, into the world earlier this month. After Musk confirmed the birth of the baby and his unusual name, the "Violence" singer took to Twitter to elaborate on the meaning of his moniker.

She broke down the name, symbol by symbol: "X, the unknown variable," she wrote "Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence)."

A-12 was also revealed to be a reference to the CIA's Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance plane, which is her and Musk's "favorite aircraft." She added, "No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent."

In a subsequent interview on Joe Rogan's podcast, Musk added that Grimes was the brains behind the name. "First of all, my partner is the one who, mostly, actually came up with the name," he said. "She's great at names."
