Following in Musk’s footsteps
Musk’s son appears to be following in his father’s footsteps, according to his mother, Grimes, who previously said their son “can identify a mysterious rocket design, and knows all the anaerobic airfoils, electric shock burns, and robots.”
Grimes also said her son uses obscenities when “his rockets fail to reach orbit”.
Grimes responded to one Twitter user, who wrote that she should buy him a new toy: “He destroys them all because he doesn’t realize they aren’t real, so he rips off the engines, parts that simulate a real missile, then accuses me of cheating because I gave him fake missiles, and then it’s hard for me to console him.” .
For the love of God, can someone follow me 🙏— Elon Test (@ErmnMusk) December 6, 2022
“He says, ‘The missile is going down,’ about 200 times a day. That’s nice,” she added .
Musk is believed to have fathered 10 children, but his first child died of sudden infant death syndrome, according to the same website.
Elon Musk has twins with Siobhan Zilis, a senior executive at Musk’s Neuralink company. Then Exa Dark Cederyl was born to Musk and Grimes in December 2021 by a surrogate mother.
Musk’s other children include Griffin, Vivian, Kay, Saxon, and Damien.
