In their expanding family, Elon Musk and the singer Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, have introduced a new addition. This revelation comes from an upcoming biography written by journalist Walter Isaacson, scheduled for release on September 12th. The biography discloses that Musk, 52 years old, and Grimes, 35 years old, have quietly welcomed their third child.
This latest addition to the family is reported to be another son. According to the biography, he goes by the name Techno Mechanicus, affectionately referred to as “Tau.” However, specific details about the infant’s birth, such as the date and location, remain undisclosed at this time.
Their journey as parents began with the birth of their first child, X Æ A-12 (later modified to X Æ A-Xii), lovingly known as “X,” on May 4, 2020. Just a few months later, in December 2021, they celebrated the arrival of their daughter, Exa Dark Sideræl, who goes by the nickname “Y,” born via surrogate. Remarkably, this happened only three months after Elon Musk and Grimes publicly ended their three-year relationship.
In a March 2022 interview, Grimes expressed her desire for more children, stating, “We’ve always wanted at least three or four.” However, the tumultuous nature of their relationship became apparent when, on the same day the interview was released, Grimes announced their breakup via a tweet. With three children now in their care, Elon Musk’s family continues to grow, and he is also a father to six children from his previous marriage to Canadian author Justine Wilson.
Interestingly, Grimes has a unique approach to parenting, as she doesn’t identify herself as a traditional “mom.” Instead, her eldest son prefers to call her by her name, reflecting the unconventional nature of their family.
