Musk posted a photo of him holding the newborn late on Monday evening.
It’s Grimes’ first child — Musk has five sons with his first wife, Justine.
Grimes announced she was pregnant in January via a cryptic social media post that showed her with a fetus Photoshopped into her belly. During a livestream on Twitch in February, she said that the baby’s due date was May 4th. Musk tweeted that the baby was due on Monday.
