Following 16 years of being a mother, Gwyneth Paltrow has admitted that she was pushed out of the position as the mother of a child with the most controversial name.
Earlier this week, Grimes and Elon Musk announced the birth of their son which came along with the name, X Æ A-12, and Gwyneth admitted that it was far more bizarre than her own child’s name. On her IG, she joked that she and her former husband, Chris Martin, were out-matched.
Referencing Chris Martin in her post, Gwyneth wrote on her Instagram account, “I think we got beat for most controversial baby names.” The comment was captured by the IG account, Comments by Celebs. You can check it out below:
In case you don’t know, Paltrow has two children with the Coldplay singer, Apple, and Moses, who are 16-years-old and 14-years-old respectively. Elon and Grimes, on the other hand, had their first baby together on Monday.
In the YouTube video below, you can hear Elon Musk explain the baby name himself:
As it was previously reported, this past Thursday, Musk stopped by the set of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast where the Tesla and Space X founder explained how his child got the strange name. He also revealed the proper pronunciation.
For instance, the Æ syllables are pronounced as “ash.” Regarding the final part of the name, A-12, Elon claims it was a tribute to the Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance aircraft constructed by the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency.
According to Elon, the A-12 was the precursor to the SR-71, which he described as one of the “coolest planes” to ever exist. With all that said, legal officials have claimed it’s not actually possible for Elon and Grimes to give their child the aforementioned name.
For instance, in the state of California, it’s against the law to include numbers in a baby’s name, likely to avoid confusion in the system. Regardless, ever since the child’s name was revealed, fans have been wondering how to even pronounce it and whether it was a joke.
