The South African-born billionaire, Elon Musk, has secretly welcomed an eleventh pinkie, Techno Mechanicus.
This is 52-year-old Musk’s third child with 35-year-old singer Grimes.
This news is confirmed in his new biography, Elon Musk, written by Walter Isaacson. This book will officially be on the shelves from Tuesday 12 September, though The New York Times already published a book report about it. It is precisely in this report that the news about Musk’s latest is announced.
It is not yet known how old Techno Mechanicus, nicknamed Tau, is.
Musk and Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, are already the parents of two little girls, three-year-old X Æ A-12 and almost two-year-old Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, who were conceived with the help of a surrogate in 2021.
Musk, the owner of X (formerly Twitter), is now the father of 11 children by three different women. One child died at the age of 10 weeks.
In 2021, shortly before Musk and Grimes’ second child was born, Shevon Zilis gave birth to Musk’s ninth and tenth children. Zilis and Musk conceived these twins, Azure and Strider, using in vitro fertilization. Zilis is a senior employee at Musk’s company, Neuralink.
According to Reuters, these two were never involved in a romantic or sexual relationship, Musk simply acted as a sperm donor. However, Grimes made her known on X after Zilis blocked her on that platform. She also claims that she is not allowed to see her eldest son. However, she quickly removed this message, and shared a longer message in which she says that she and Zilis are now on better terms with each other, that they respect each other and that their children will grow up together.
Hey, I would prefer not to breathe any more life into this current press cycle but I want to de-escalate the narrative atm.
I spoke with Shivon at length finally, which was long overdue. This wasn’t her fault, plz don’t be angry at her! We respect each other a lot and we’re…

Musk has five children with his first wife, Justin Wilson: 18-year-old twins, Vivian Jenna and Griffin, and 17-year-old triplets, Kai, Damian and Sax. Their first child, Nevada, died at the age of 10 weeks.
