HE IS the billionaire businessman changing the world with SpaceX, Tesla and Twitter.
But when he’s not using his genius in tech, Elon Musk has kept his hands busy with his seven children.
Who are Elon Musk’s children?
Twins – Griffin and Xavier Musk
In 2004, Musk and his then-wife Justine welcomed twins Griffin and Xavier with some help from IVF.
Her mother is Justine Wilson, who divorced Musk in 2008.
This week, Musk’s teenage son filed a petition to change her gender as she wants nothing to do with her birth father.
Former Xavier Alexander Musk filed the paperwork to change her name in California on April 18.
The petition reveals that she wants to be known as Vivian Jenna Wilson, TMZ reported.
She said she is changing her name because she no longer wants to live with or be related to her birth father “in any way, shape or form.”
Triplets – Kai, Saxon and Damian Musk
The former couple’s triplets Kai, Saxon and Damian Musk were born in 2006.
They too were conceived through IVF and custody is shared between the two parents after they divorced in 2008.
The triplets are now 15.
Musk has never spoken publicly about his life with his sons.
In a previous interview, Wilson said, “Almost all of my waking hours outside of work are with my boys, and they are the love of my life.”
X Æ A-Xii
On May 5, 2020, Elon Musk and his former partner Grimes announced the arrival of their baby boy.
The couple initially named their newborn child X Æ A-12.
The name appeared to be partly inspired by one of the songs from the 33-year-old Grimes’ last album – 4ÆM.
Unfortunately for the couple, the name didn’t comply with California law, as the law prohibits Indo-Arabic numerals in names.
Musk and Grimes had to change it to X AE A-XII to remove the Æ and 12 in order for his birth certificate to comply with California law.
In an interview for Joe Rogan’s then-podcast, Musk revealed the pronunciation of his son’s name.
He told Rogan it’s pronounced X-Ash-A-Twelve.
Grimes announced she was pregnant in January 2020, and Musk had previously said the baby is expected to arrive on Monday, May 4th.
Exa Dark Sideræl Musk
In March 2022, Musk welcomed his second child with pop star Grimes.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, she accidentally announced the couple’s baby news.
She tried to hide her daughter’s birth from the public, but the secret was revealed when a baby was heard crying upstairs during the interview.
Exa Dark Sideræl Musk is known as Y, joining older brother X Æ A-12, similarly referred to as X.
Grimes and Musk named their daughter Exa Dark Sideræl because, according to Vanity Fair, Exa comes from the computer term exaFlops.
The middle part of the name, Dark, refers to the beautiful, unknown mystery of dark matter in the universe.
And Sideræl, pronounced “sigh-deer-ee-el,” is a more “elven” interpretation of the word sidereal, meaning sidereal or space time, an alternative to earth time.
Grimes explained that the name means: “The true time of the universe, sidereal time, space time, not our earth relative time.”
It’s also a nod to Grimes’ favorite character Galadriel from Lord of the Rings.
Musk and Grimes, 32, aka Claire Boucher, began dating in 2018 and made their Met Gala debut in May 2018.
