    On 4 May sci-fi fans unofficially celebrate Star Wars day by saying "May the Fourth be with you" around the net, and it seems like there could be no better day for the baby of the founder of Space X to be born.

    Elon Musk, founder of Tesla and SpaceX, and Grimes, a Canadian pop star, announced that their baby has been born, with its gender and name yet to be revealed. 

    "Mom and baby all good," Musk tweeted, immediately receiving warm congratulations from the twitterati.

    Earlier on Monday, he said on his Twitter that the baby was ust "a few hours away".

    This is going to be the billionaire's sixth child, as he has five children from his ex-wife Justine Wilson, whom he married in 2000; the couple separated in 2008.

    ​Netizens immediately became excited with the fact that the baby was born on the unofficial "Star Wars day", claiming that it is now "a Jedi" and even suggesting appropriate names.

    ​Some went further, suggesting future toys that the proud dad could build for his child.

    ​Every second congratulatory tweet was connected with Star Wars, the Force, space and lightsabers.

    ​Some had exceptionally high hopes for the newborn.

    Others tried to slide in something that was not about Star Wars, but still connected with tech, saving the world, space and lovely children. 

    Elon Musk and Grimes started dating in May 2018, and earlier this year the couple surprised everyone, revealing that they were expecting a baby.
