On June 28, 1971, Elon Reeve Musk was born to Maye and Errol Musk in Pretoria, South Africa. Even though his mother was Canadian, he spent his formative years in South Africa, where his father was born and raised. After his father and mother separated in 1980, he sided with his dad and moved home with him.
Elon Musk amassed his wealth by converting his ideas into functioning businesses. He became the world’s richest person in 2022 thanks to a profession that grew out of his early fascination with technology. He is most recognized now for his roles as chairman of SolarCity, CEO of Tesla Motors, and chief product architect at SpaceX.
The Private Life of Elon Musk
In the years between 2000 and 2008, he was married to the writer Justine Wilson. After divorce, the custody of their five surviving boys is shared between them. Talulah Riley became his second wife in 2010. They separated informally in 2012, remarried the following year, and then finalized their divorce in 2016.
Besides Amber Heard, in 2018, he started dating the Canadian artist Grimes (Claire Elise Boucher). Their “semi-separation” occurred in December 2021, yet they remained close friends. Elon also became a father again in late 2021, when one of his Neuralink employees had twins. An article published in July 2022 alleged that in December 2021, Elon Musk had an affair with Sergey Brin’s wife. His recent twin births with Neuralink executive Shivon Zilli’s in November 2021 have made him a celebrity and media darling.
Elon Musk’s children
The Musk family continues expanding with Elon’s help. In just 20 years, the Tesla creator has amassed a brood of 10 among 3 wives. Nevada Alexander Musk was born to Musk and his wife, Canadian novelist Justine Wilson, in 2002. At only 10 weeks old, he passed away from sudden infant death syndrome. Musk and his ex-wife Justine had twins, Griffin Musk and Xavier Musk, with the aid of IVF in 2004. On April 18th, Xavier Alexander Musk submitted the necessary paperwork in California to legally alter her name to that of Musk. Three triplets were born to the former couple in 2006: Kai, Saxon, and Damian Musk. Together with his wife Justine Wilson, he’s the proud father of six children. But in 2008, after seven years of marriage and five children, the couple finally called it quits.
Elon twice married and divorced actress Talulah Riley. They never had children. After Grimes revealed her pregnancy with a photo of her baby belly in January 2020, Pop artist and Elon had their first child, which they named X A-12, on May 5, 2020. Three months after their public separation, in December 2021 Grimes disclosed in a Vanity Fair interview that she had given birth to a baby girl through a surrogate and named her Exa Dark Sidereal.
According to the publication, Musk and Shivon Zilis had twins on 6 July 2021. Just weeks before he and Grimes had a baby girl via surrogacy.
