Griffin Musk is one half of Elon Musk and his first wife, Justine Wilson’s twins. Like his father, he appears to be headed for a career in software development as he is currently studying Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science at Brown University.
Two years after the dеаth of Elon’s two months old first child due to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in 2002, the business mogul and Wilson welcomed twins Griffin and Vivian, making them the eldest of Musk’s nine living children.
Griffin’s other siblings include triplets two years younger than him and four half-siblings from his father’s later relationships after his parents divorced when he was four years old. Griffin’s twin changed her name and gender to Vivian and female, respectively, when she turned 18.
Griffin Musk Is One of Elon Musk’s Older Twins
Griffin and his twin, Vivian, were conceived via In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) as the parents tried to avoid similar problems to those they faced with their deceased older brother, Nevada. Griffin was born in 2004. However, his birthday did not sufficiently heal his mother, who remained depressed from losing her first child.
Griffin’s family welcomed triplets conceived via the same IVF procedure two years after his birth in January 2006. The triplet boys were named Saxon, Damian, and Kai. Griffin also has four half-siblings from his father’s side. There are the unusually named X AE A-XII and Exa Dark and twins born in 2021 whose names are unknown.
Unfortunately, Griffin’s parents divorced while he was still young. His father filed for divorce in 2008 before getting engaged to a young British actress in her early 20s six weeks later. An Englishwoman, Talulah Riley, became Griffin’s stepmother.
