Elon Musk is a father again: how many children the billionaire has and why their strange names shocked the world
American billionaire, founder of Space X and Tesla, owner of the social network X, formerly called Twitter, Elon Musk has three children from his ex-wife - singer Grimes. Earlier it was known only about two heirs of the entrepreneur from the performer and 7 more from other women.
Parents did not change tradition and gave their son a unique name. This became known after the publication of a review of the biography of Elon Musk, after which the billionaire confirmed the information in his social network (to see the photo, scroll to the end of the page).
The third child of the engineer and singer was named Techno Mechanicus. The couple hid until the last that they are raising three common heirs.
How many children in Musk and what are their names
The billionaire became a father for the first time in 2002, but his firstborn son named Nevada died 10 weeks after birth. At the time, Musk was married to writer Justine Wilson. The parents decided not to risk a second time and resorted to IVF treatment. In 2004, they gave birth to twins Griffin and Xavier.
After 2 years, in 2006, with the help of artificial insemination, the couple had three more sons - Damian, Saxon and Kai. The public knows little about them.
With the growth of popularity and successful development of Elon Musk's businesses, his views on familiar names have changed. Already in a relationship with singer Grimes, he shocked the world by talking about his three more children.
In 2020, the lovers had a son named X Æ A-12, where X stands for an unknown variable, Æ is from the fictional Elvish language for "artificial intelligence," and A-12 is a reference to an American spy plane.
In 2021, the inventor had an only daughter, whom he also did not spare. The girl was named Exa Dark Sideræl. Here, too, not without terms and elvish language. Exa refers to a supercomputer term, Dark from English means "unknown" or "dark", and "Sideræl" is the Elvish spelling of Sidereal, meaning "the present time of the universe, spacetime, not our Earth time".
Regarding the name for the "secret" son, there is still no official version online. After the reveal on his own social media, Musk wrote: "Tau Techno Mechanicus. Circle/Diameter," whatever that means. By the way, how many months or years old he is is also unknown.
Musk has two other twin sons, who were born to his employee Siobhan Zilis. One of them is named Azur and the other is named Strider.
