Viking cut

Grimes gave her baby a fresh haircut and shared pics of the outcome on Instagram.

“Not sure this haircut went well but he’s [a] Viking now,” she said.

She explained that the haircut was inspired by the British historical fiction series “The Last Kingdom,” which she described as a “masterpiece.”

Name change

Grimes and Elon’s son’s name has already been through a lot–it was first changed from “X Æ A-12” to “X Æ A-Xii,” then changed again to “X AE A-XII,” since only the 26 letters in the English alphabet are allowed in Californian birth certificates.

According to Grimes, it’s pronounced as “X A.I. A Twelve,” while Elon said it is “X Ash A Twelve.”
