It's come to light that Grimes and Elon Musk secretly had another child. And the name isn't quite as strange as their first baby—but still strange.

In an exclusive interview with Vanity Fair, Grimes revealed that she gave birth to a new daughter in December 2021. Born via a surrogate, her name is Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, and nicknamed "Y." Grimes also said that her and the Tesla CEO plan on having more children

"We've always wanted at least three or four," she said.

Grimes and Musk, who separated in September 2021, aren't technically "together" at this time, but the former considers the latter her partner. "We're best friends," she told VF. "We see each other all the time... We just have our own thing going on, and I don't expect other people to understand it. We just need to be free."
