When your name is X AE A-Xii and your dad is the richest man in the world, your childhood experience is going to be anything but ordinary.

Now, thanks to a DIY home haircut, Tesla founder Elon Musk and singer Grimes' son can add viking to his list of unique qualities. 

Grimes, 32, took to Instagram to show off her hairdressing skills, saying his new 'do was inspired by TV show The Last Kingdom.

Uploading photos of herself cutting the eight-month-old's hair in the bath, she captioned the Insta story: "Not sure this haircut went well, but he's a viking now.'

"Haircut inspired by the last kingdom on Netflix which is a masterpiece," she continued. 

The show focuses on an army of Norse invaders taking over England in the years 866–878. 

Born on May 4, Musk has previously spoken about how Grimes had played a 'much bigger role' in raising their son so far. 

In an interview with the New York Times, the entrepreneur said he would get the chances to be more hands on when X was older, describing babies as 'eating and pooping machines'. 

"Grimes has a much bigger role than me right now," he admitted. "When the kid gets older, there will be more of a role for me," he said last year. 

Musk also shares six sons with former wife Justine Wilson, including their son Nevada, who died of SIDS at 10 weeks.

They also share twins Griffin and Xavier, 17 and triplets Damian, Saxon and Kai, aged 15.
