Elon and Justine then welcomed twin sons Griffin Musk and Xavier Musk, born in 2004, via IVF. Not much is known about them.
3. Kai Musk, Saxon Musk & Damian Musk
Their triplet sons Kai Musk, Saxon Musk, and Damian Musk were born in 2006, also via IVF.
Musk and Wilson had triplets — all boys — in 2006, after having twins. In 2008, Musk and Wilson divorced.
Musk has a colorful romantic past as well. In 2010, after divorcing Wilson, he married actress, Tallulah Riley. They divorced in 2012, then remarried in 2013, only to divorce again in 2016.
In May 2020, Elon then announced the birth of his son on Twitter, whom he welcomed with his girlfriend, singer Grimes. Their son is called X Æ A-Xii, known as ‘X’
In March 2022, it was revealed in a Vanity Fair feature that Elon and Grimes had welcomed a daughter in December 2021 by a surrogate, whom they’ve called Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, shortened to ‘Y’.
Also, they have a different way of pronouncing this both son and daughter as proved in an interview:
What Elon Stated: “So, X is just the letter X, Æ is pronounced as Ash. And, A-12 is my contribution and it is just pronounced as A-12.” Therefore, the final pronunciation of the name is, “X Ash A Twelve.”
What Grimes stated:
“It’s just X, like the letter X,” Grimes wrote. “Then A.I. Like how you said the letter A then I.”
