Elon Musk has a little sidekick while working at Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters. On Thursday, the Tesla CEO tweeted photos of his 2-year-old son X Æ A-12, who is accompanying him on one of his many professional endeavors. Came to meet “X Beautiful San Francisco,” she captioned the first photo, which shows the child smiling in front of heart-shaped art depicting the city’s iconic symbols.
In a separate tweet, Musk pinned a badge to the little boy’s jeans. And with his Twitter badge, he captioned the shot that shows X has his own badge for the office. With X, Musk shares daughter Axa Darksideral, nicknamed Y, with his former singer, Grimes. In an extensive cover story for Vanity Fair earlier this year, the 34-year-old opened up about Musk’s relationship with his son.
Whatever is going on with family things, I just feel like the kids need to stay out of it and X is right there, he said, adding that his son is in the public eye. I mean, I think E is really looking at him as a protégé and bringing him up for everything and stuff X that’s how they are.
Musk secretly welcomed the twins in November 2021 with project director Shivonne Zillis at his Neuralink company. He also shares triplets Kai, Damian and Sachs with 18-year-old twins Vivian Jenna Wilson and Griffin, who were born in 2006 to his first wife, Justine Wilson. The couple had another son, Nevada, who died at 10 weeks.
Speaking with the Financial Times in October, the Tesla CEO talked about fathering 10 children and plans to welcome more children in the future. When asked if there are any other children that Musk has fathered, the SpaceX founder told the outlet, “I’m pretty sure there are no other children.” Yet Musk, who referred to himself as an autumn chicken at age 51, shared that he can welcome more children as long as he can be a good father to them.
