Due to this pandemic, people all around the world have been used to the situation of depending on the internet in order to work from home. The work from home method involved attending zoom meetings and at the same time also taking care of our family. As a result, right from the beginning of the lockdowns, many such funny videos went viral on social media, where family members usually made a “guest appearance” during the video meetings. And we have to agree that all the guest appearances in the video were too hilarious. Well, if you think these incidents are only limited to the general public, you might be actually wrong, because recently, the world’s richest man faced the same issue. Elon Musk was attending SpaceX’s Starship program during a talk organized by the National Academies Space Studies Board recently, and as Musk turned on his camera when it was his turn to speak, all the viewers were surprised by the guest appearance made by his little son X Æ A-12 sitting on his dad’s lap.
X Æ A-12, looking too cute, was curiously looking at the camera while on the other hand, Musk prepared to start speaking. The screen showcased the videos of rockets, and by watching those, X Æ A-12’s curiosity grew and as the dad probably sensed it, he told him what he was watching was a rocket. After a few minutes, two men entered the room where Elon Musk was speaking and took away the kid. And the baby could be seen crying while he was being taken outside the room by the men.
Christian Davenport, a Washington Post journalist took to Twitter in order to share a screengrab of Elon Musk and his son during the meeting. As he posted the video, he wrote in the caption, “Elon and baby giving a Starship presentation. As he once told me, ‘Mars needs babies.'” As you may know that Elon Musk is very active on his social media, Musk wasted no time and replied, “It does need people!”
This video caught the attention of many people, as they saw the dad side of Elon Musk. A Twitter user wrote, “That dad laugh by Elon… this is so wholesome” while another wrote, “He might be the wealthiest man in the world but most importantly he’s a dad.” Yet another one tweeted.
X AE A-XII was born to Elon Musk and Canadian singer Grimes on May 4 last year. Grimes had then shared the pronunciation of the name, as “ex- eye”.
Well, you may have seen other famous personalities facing similar funny situations. A similar incident happened with New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern earlier this month when Ardern was busy telling the nation about important revisions to Covid-19 restrictions. As he was talking about this important topic, an unexpected voice cut in: “mummy”? In a situation that is surely familiar to parents worldwide, the leader’s three-year-old daughter Neve had took the decision of everything, even the affairs of state, could wait. “You’re meant to be in bed, darling,” the 41-year-old Kiwi leader said to his daughter, turning away from Monday’s Facebook live stream to offer an also-familiar observation-cum-plea. “No,” Neve responds undeterred, launching what ended up being protracted, and for Ardern, fruitless, negotiations.
“It’s bedtime, darling, pop back to bed. I’ll come and see you in a second. I’ll come and see you in a minute. Okay, — sorry, everybody,” Ardern said further.
“Well, that was a bedtime fail, wasn’t it? I thought here’s a moment I’ll do a Facebook Live, It will be nice and safe. Does anyone else have kids escape like three, four times after bedtime? Thankfully, my mum’s here so she can help out.”
