Elon Musk expressed his concern about a world where “there are not enough people” in an interview towards the end of 2021, predicting that “civilization would implode” as a result. What was his response? People should be encouraged to have more children.
To be fair, Elon Musk is a true believer in what he teaches. Despite the Tesla CEO’s admission of their break-up only three months previously, the 50-year-old billionaire discreetly had his second kid with Grimes in December 2021. But, as we wait for the third Grimes-Musk child, let’s take a look at the complete Musk family thus far.
Exa Dark Sideræl Musk
Exa, Elon Musk’s newborn daughter, is her father’s first daughter. She was born via surrogate in December 2021, and her older brother, X A-12, is also known as “Y” in the family.
X Æ A-12
According to SCMP, “X” became a superstar almost immediately after his birth on May 4, 2020 (Star Wars Day). Not just because he was Grimes and Musk’s first kid after their two-year relationship, but also because of his really unique name. It’s pronounced “X Ash A Twelve,” and it’s Grimes’ elven spelling of AI (love in a variety of East Asian languages, and/or artificial intelligence).
Twins Xavier and Griffin
Elon Musk received his first kid, Nevada, in 2002, after marrying his first wife, Canadian writer Justine Wilson. Sadly, the kid died 10 weeks later from sudden infant death syndrome, leaving the couple distraught.
Wilson was able to have twins Griffin and Xavier in April 2004 after undergoing IVF. Since their divorce in 2008, the couple has shared custody of their five children.
Triplets Damian, Saxon, and Kai,
Per Newsweek via MSN, Elon Musk married actress Talulah Riley twice, in 2010 and 2013, although the couple never had children. Though neither Wilson nor Musk discusses their children, Wilson did so during a TedTalk in 2017 when she revealed that she and Musk had three triplets together through IVF (in vitro fertilization).
