Elon Musk began dating singer Claire Boucher, known as Grimes in May 2018 after two marriages to "Westworld" actress Talulah Riley and a brief romance with actress Amber Heard. In May 2020, Grimes gave birth to their son, X AE A-XII.
Musk and Grimes would introduce their second child Exa Dark Sideræl in 2021.
Though, while in the relationship with Grimes, Insider uncovered that Musk had twins with Shivon Zilis, one of his top NeuraLink executives, which were born just weeks before Musk and Grimes introduced their second child.
Counting the twins, Musk has 10 total children, of which nine are living.
Justine (Wilson) Musk is the first wife of the famed billionaire. The two were married in January 2000 and introduced their first son, Nevada Musk, in 2002, the same year Musk founded SpaceX.
Unfortunately, Nevada passed away from SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) at 10 weeks.
Two years later, the pair had twin boys, Griffin and Xavier Musk, the same year Elon joined Tesla, and in 2006, Justine gave birth to triplets, Damion, Saxon and Kai Musk.
The older twins, Griffin and Xavier, are 18, and the younger three are 16.
Justine and Musk split custody of the five children following their divorce in 2008.
The first wife of the wealthiest man in the world called herself a "starter wife," saying in a 2010 article in Marie Claire: “Although I am estranged from Elon — when it comes to the children, I deal with his assistant — I don't regret my marriage. I've worked through some anger, both at Elon for rendering me so disposable, and at myself for buying into a fairy tale when I should have known better. But I will always respect the brilliant and visionary person that he is,” she said. “Elon and I share custody of the children, who are thriving. I feel grounded now, and deeply grateful for my life.”
