South African-born billionaire Elon Musk has recently confirmed the arrival of his 11th child, his third with Canadian musician Clare Elise Boucher, better known as Grimes. This revelation was made in an excerpt from his biography penned by Walter Isaacson. Let’s delve into the details of Elon Musk’s kids and ‘baby mamas’.
Elon Musk’s Children and Their Mothers
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, had his first child with ex-wife Justine Musk in 2002. Sadly, the infant passed away at just 10 weeks old due to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
Griffin Musk and Vivian Wilson
In 2004, Musk and Justine welcomed twins Griffin and Xavier. After the tragic loss of their first child, they turned to In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) to expand their family. Xavier legally changed her gender and name to Vivian Jenna Wilson in 2022, shortly after her 18th birthday. She distanced herself from her billionaire father and adopted her mother’s maiden surname. It is believed that Musk and Vivian have an estranged relationship.
Kai, Saxon, and Damian
In 2006, Justine and Musk welcomed triplets Kai, Saxon, and Damian, also through IVF.
X AE A-XII
Grimes and Musk welcomed their baby boy X AE A-XII, affectionately known as baby X, in May 2020 after dating since 2018. Their relationship has been on-and-off since then.

In December 2021, Grimes and Musk secretly welcomed a baby girl via a surrogate. This was revealed during Grimes’ Vanity Fair cover shoot when the reporter heard the baby crying upstairs.
According to an excerpt from a New York Times review of Isaacson’s biography, Musk welcomed his 11th child – third with Grimes – named Techno Mechanicus in June 2022. The child is nicknamed Tau.
