Elon Musk, entrepreneur and head of Tesla, X (formerly Twitter) and SpaceX, among others, is a father of eleven. In a forthcoming biography – some chapters of which have already been made public – one of his ex-wives revealed how he envisioned fighting the world’s underpopulation, which he feared. According to this, “smart people” in particular should have children in the future in order to compensate for the decline in the world’s inhabitants that he fears.

It is hardly concealed that when he emphasizes the quality of “smart” he also thinks of himself. This is at least obvious insofar as he has fathered eleven children so far. Musk has triplets Kai, Saxon and Damian, 17, as well as twins Griffin and Vivian, 19, with his ex-wife Justine Wilson. He and Wilson also had son Nevada in 2000. However, the baby died of sudden infant death syndrome at ten weeks old.

Elon Musk has two children with Neuralink manager Shivon Zilis. Neuralink – a company also founded by Musk – became known for working on brain-computer interfaces. It was also Zilis who is now quoted from the new Musk biography by the New York Times

With Grimes – real name Claire Elise Boucher – he has three children: X Æ A-12, Exa Dark Sideræl and the recently born Techno Mechanicus.

Musk has made his fears of an impending underpopulation of the world public on numerous occasions in the past. In his opinion, the world’s population is “moving ever faster toward collapse, but few seem to notice or care.”
