Grimes and Elon Musk’s daughter’s name is officially a lot shorter. The musician shared a photo of her daughter on Twitter on March 23, and when someone commented “omg baby sailor mars hiiii,” Grimes replied, “She’s Y now, or ‘Why’ or just ‘?’ (But the government won’t recognize that).” Y, she appeared to say, represents “curiosity, the eternal question, and such.” Grimes and Elon originally named their daughter Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, though she was nicknamed Y at the time.

This isn’t the first time Grimes and Elon have decided to change one of their children’s names. Their first child, a boy, was originally named X Æ A-12, but they later changed it to X Æ A-Xii – though the child’s legal name is X.

However, when the article was published in March 2022, Grimes tweeted that the pair had since called it quits once more. “Me and E have broken up *again* since the writing of this article haha, but he’s my best friend and the love of my life, and my life and art are forever dedicated to The Mission now,” Grimes wrote. Shortly after that breakup, Grimes was linked to whistleblower Chelsea Manning, per The Cut, though the pair reportedly broke up in July 2022. Meanwhile, Elon was linked to actor Natasha Bassett that summer, per Newsweek, though nothing was confirmed.

Elon has a total of 10 kids from three relationships, per The Independent. He and his first wife, author Justine Wilson, gave birth to a child named Nevada Alexander Musk in 2002, though he died at 10 weeks old. Afterwards, Wilson and Elon welcomed twins named Griffin and Vivian Musk in 2004, and then went on to have triplets named Kai, Saxon, and Damian Musk in 2006. Elon also has twins with Shivon Zilis, the director of operations of Elon’s company Neuralink. The twins were reportedly born in November 2021 – just one month before the birth of his daughter with Grimes.
