Elon Musk reveals which of his 9 kids is ‘most passionate’ about following in his footsteps’ after dad Errol’s criticism

ELON Musk has revealed that his son X Æ A-Xii is the “most passionate” about Space X and Mars out of his nine children.

It comes after the businessman’s own dad Errol revealed he is not proud of his son and that Musk’s brother Kimbel is his “pride and joy” in a bizarre new interview on Monday.

The billionaire had been questioned about his family in recent days after sharing pictures of some of his children and his dogs on Twitter.

“Elon, which of your children is most passionate about SpaceX and Mars???” one user as the Tesla CEO.

Short, sweet, and to the point, Musk simply replied “X,” the nickname version of his son’s unique name  X Æ A-Xii.

Earlier this week, Musk faced criticism from his estranged dad Errol, who The Sun exclusively revealed had two children with his stepdaughter.

The South African engineer, 76, called into Australian radio program The Kyle and Jackie O Show on August 1 to speak about his famous son.

One of the presenters appeared to gush over Elon as they described him as a “genius” and asked Errol if he was proud of his son.

But, Errol replied that he is not proud of Elon.

He said: “No. You know, we are a family that have been doing a lot of things for a long time, it’s not as if we suddenly started doing something.”

Musk has a net worth of $274.1billion, according to Forbes, but Errol claimed that his son may be “frustrated with (his) progress.”

Errol said that Elon lives a “frugal” life, but revealed that Kimbal is his “pride and joy.”

Kimbal, 49, owns The Kitchen Restaurant Group, which has eateries located in Colorado, Memphis, Cleveland, Indianapolis, and Chicago.

He also sits on the board of Tesla and SpaceX.

Scandal-ridden Errol wildly claimed that he has been asked to donate sperm to impregnate high-class women and create a new generation of Elons.’


X is Musk’s child with the aesthetically alien, avant-pop artist Grimes.

On Tuesday, the Tesla founder tweeted a photo of him and X with very similar haircuts.

Musk captioned the post: “Thanksgiving last year after watching one too many episodes of Vikings”.

Fans seem to love the insight into Musk’s family life as the photo has amassed almost 300,000 likes on Twitter in less than 24 hours.

Fans noticed that the father and son were both sporting a hairstyle similar to one of the main characters on the TV show Vikings.

One fan asked: “Did you cut your hair And his.”

Musk simply replied: “Yeah”.

Another follower shared a picture of Musk when he was a child and wrote: “Elon, you looked the same.”

Old family photos reveal that Musk was also blonde as a child just like X AE A-XII.

Musk’s young son was originally called X Æ A-12 but his name was changed to X AE A-XII when it was revealed that using “Æ” and “12” in a child’s name violated California law.


Despite their fluid and ambiguous relationship status, Space X founder Musk continues to co-parent X with Grimes. 

Earlier this year, it was announced that Grimes and Musk secretly welcomed their second child in Dececber 2021 March 2022, nicknamed Y.

Musk and Grimes dated for three years prior to their split.

Musk said his work at SpaceX and Tesla keeps him in Texas or traveling overseas and Grimes is usually in LA.

On September 24, 2021, Musk told Page Six: “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms.

“She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room.”

Musk was previously married to Canadian author Justine Wilson.

His first child, Nevada Alexander Musk, was born in 2002, two years after their marriage in 2000.

Sadly, he died at just 10 weeks old of sudden infant death syndrome.

Wilson and Musk have five sons together: 17-year-old twins Griffin and Vivian (formerly Xavier before her transition) and 15-year-old triplets Kai, Saxon and Damian.

Vivian filed paperwork to remove Musk from her name in April, as she “no longer lives with or wish(es) to be related” to her biological father “in any way, shape or form,” TMZ says.

Musk has never spoken publicly about his life with his kids.

In a previous interview, Wilson said: “Almost all of my non-work waking hours are spent with my boys, and they are the love of my life.”

On July 6, 2022, The Daily Mail reported that Musk had quietly welcomed twins weeks before he welcomed his second child with Grimes.

Musk and Shivon Zilis, 36, welcomed twins together back in November 2021, the outlet reports.

Zilis is one of Musk’s top executives at his company Neuralink, per Insider.

Both of the parents filed petitions to change the twins’ names so that they could have the Musk last name.

They also filed a petition to have the mother’s last name be their middle name, The Daily Mail reports.
