Kai Musk – Elon Musk’s Proud Son

Kai Musk is one of Elon Musk’s triplet boys with his former wife, Justine Wilson. Kai has the privilege, but also, the responsibility of being Elon’s son. It is not an easy thing. Life is not always easy as the child of a famous entrepreneur.

Do you want to know more about Kai? His mother and father, Jennifer Justine Musk and Elon Mask had several children. Kai is one of them. And while many people recognize his father, his mother is also a celebrity, a Canadian author.

Some of his siblings include Saxon Musk, Damian Musk, Griffin Musk, Vivian Jenna Wilson, Nevada Alexander Musk, and more.

Who is his famous father?

Almost anyone has heard about Elon Musk, one of the biggest entrepreneurs in the past several years. Born Elon Reeve Musk in June 1971, the business magnate and investor is the founder, CEO, and chief engineer of SpaceX and Tesla. He also co-founded OpenAI, the platform behind Chat GPT, the latest AI achievement. But he has left the company.

Born in Pretoria, South Africa, he briefly attended the University of Pretoria before moving to Canada with his family at 18 years. He got citizenship through his Canadian-born mother Maye Musk, and two years later, he matriculated at Queen’s University. He would later transfer to the University of Pennsylvania, where he got his bachelor’s degree in economics and physics.

His father, Errol Musk, was a wealthy businessman in South Africa. He and Maye Musk had three children, Elon, Tosca Musk, and Kimbal Musk.

In 1995, Musk moved to California to attend Stanford University but dropped out two days into the year. Alongside his brother Kimbal Musk, he co-founded the online city guide software company Zip2.

The company was acquired by Compaq in 1999 for $307 million, and then Musk co-founded, a direct bank. That bank merged with Confinity in 2000 to form PayPal, which eBay acquired for $1.5 billion in 2002.

As you can see, in a span of several years, Musk founded or co-founded two companies that he sold for millions.

It is worth noting that his family was wealthy as well. His father was elected to the Pretoria City Council as a representative of the anti-apartheid Progressive Party.

In 2002, with $175 million, he founded SpaceX. He used the money from his previous companies and sales to form a spaceflight services company. And then in 2004, he was an early investor in the electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla Motors, which is now Tesla Inc. By 2008, Musk assumed the position of CEO.

One thing is certain about Elon Musk. He knows exactly when to enter a field, and when to sell it. He is a visionary, one who founds companies before the industry has grown. Back in the early 2000s, not many people were interested in electric vehicles.

Nowadays, Tesla is one of the leading companies in the car manufacturing industry. In 2015, he co-founded OpenAI, which was at the time, a nonprofit artificial intelligence research company.

In 2022, he bought Twitter for $44 billion. Over the years, he has been criticized for making unscientific and misleading statements, including that of spreading Covid-19 misinformation.

And in the past several years, he has been toying with the crypto market. At one point, Tesla accepted payments in Bitcoin, increasing the price of the currency. Then he stopped accepting. And then he bought Dogecoin, and so on.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at his son, Kai Musk.

Quick Bio

As we said before, Kai is one of the triplet boys Elon shares with his former wife Justine Wilson. While his father is an entrepreneur, his mother is a Canadian author. The triplets were born through in vitro fertilization, the same as their twins before.

Born in 2006, he is just at the tail end of his teenage years. Kai holds American nationality. His father, on the other hand, has American, Canadian, and South African nationality.

Kai often appears in pictures with his father, usually on Elon’s Instagram account and in news reports about the Musk family. But when your father is a billionaire, one of the wealthiest people alive, that comes as part of the job.

Kai was born through IVF, alongside his brothers Saxon Musk and Damian Musk. His parents split in 2008, and he was again in the news as a young child.

In June 2018, he posed for Forbes Magazine alongside his brothers and father. As far as we know, he doesn’t work. He doesn’t have any profession as of June 2023. There is no information about his educational background.

Truth be told, with a father like Elon Musk, he might not have to work a day in his life. But knowing his father, and the emphasis he puts on work, Kai will not inherit the fortune without working.

His big family

Within two decades, Elon Musk has become a father of 10 children with three different women. That makes the Musk family one of the biggest in Hollywood. Exactly who are the members of the big family?

Elon had his first child in 2002, and his most recent in 2021. He has five children with his ex-wife, Canadian author Justine Wilson.

Elon and Justine met for the first time as students at Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada. They got married in 2000. Yet, after six(one of them passed away) children and seven years of marriage, they split and officially divorced in 2008. They split evenly the custody of the children.

At the time, Musk said, “Almost all of my non-work waiting hours are spent with my boys, and they are the love of my life”.

Two years later, Elon got married and then divorced American actress Talulah Riley. Their first marriage lasted from 2010 to 2012, and the second from 2013 to 2016. They didn’t have any children together.

In 2018, Musk was linked to singer Grimes, real name Claire Boucher. They split in September 2021 after three years. They had their first child in 2020. In March 2022, Claire said they reconciled, and had another child via surrogate in December 2021.

A few weeks before the arrival of their second child, Elon secretly fathered twins with Shivon Zilis in November 2021. That is according to court documents published by Insider.

In May 2023, Musk talked about the future of his children. In that interview with Wall Street Journal, he said he has no plans to automatically give his children shares in his companies. He added, “Not if they have no interest or inclination or ability to manage the empire. I think that is a mistake”. With that in mind, here are all the children he has fathered over the years.

  •  Nevada Alexander is his first son, born in 2002, but he passed away at 10 weeks old from sudden infant death syndrome
  • Vivian Jenna Wilson and Griffin Musk, his first twins with Justine, with Vivian Musk later changing her name legally to her mother’s maiden name
  • Kai Musk, Saxon Musk, and Damien Musk are his triplet boys, also conceived via IVF
  • X Æ A-12 is Musk first child with Grimes, after the singer announced her pregnancy in January 2020. Born in May 2020, his name was later changed to X Æ A-Xii because of the CIA’s Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance plane
  • Musk has twins with Shivon Zilis, who is the project director at His Neuralink company. The names and sexes of the twins were redacted from court documents
  • Exa Dark Sideraek is his baby girl via surrogate with Grimes, born in December 2021, three months after they had a public breakup

Is he on social media?

As far as we know, Kai Musk doesn’t have a social media handle. Yes, he is a teenager, and he is at the age when people “live” on social media. But maybe because he gets too much publicity anyway, Kai wants to stay away from the media spotlight.

His father does live on social media, particularly Instagram and Twitter. After all, Elon bought Twitter back in $2022 for $44 billion.

Net Worth

The net worth of Elon Musk, and with that, his children, varies from one day to another. It depends on how much the stocks of his companies go up or down.

As of June 2023, he is valued at $193 billion, making him a member of the Top 5 wealthiest people alive. He is behind Bernard Arnault, and ahead of Jeff Bezos
