Early life

Nevada Alexander Musk was born in 2002 to Elon Musk and Justine Musk in Orange County, California, USA.

One night, Elon and Justine left their eldest son after he was asleep. Nevada was only two months old.

When they later checked, they were shocked to see their son wasn’t breathing. They immediately called paramedics for help. 

The paramedics’ crew tried to bring him back from the unconscious but failed. Nevada Musk’s brain stopped functioning due to the absence of oxygen for a long time.

The doctor concluded that the eldest son of Elon Musk passed away ten weeks after birth due to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). 

The Musk family was devastated after the child’s sudden fatality. However, both had different mechanisms to cope with the misery.

When Wilson’s interview with Marie Claire, she put her feelings into words saying, “Elon made it clear that he did not want to talk about Nevada’s death. I didn’t understand why I grieved openly, which he regarded as ’emotionally manipulative.’ So I buried my feelings instead, coping with Nevada’s death by making my first to an IVF clinic less than two months later. Elon and I planned to get pregnant again as swiftly as possible.”

On the other hand, in one of his interviews, Elon thought grieving in public was unnecessary, and he called this act ‘not good for the future. He added, ” If you’ve got other kids, then wallowing in sadness does no good for anyone around you.”


Elon Musk with his five sons

Elon met Justine when he was a student at Queen’s University. However, their courtship only started after their friendship.

The couple was married in 2002. Nevada Alexander Musk’s parents were blessed with six children.

After losing their first son, they went to an IVF clinic.

Following their first visit to the IVF clinic, they welcomed two twins, Griffin Musk and Xavier Musk, and three triplets, Damian Musk, Saxon Musk, and Kai Musk.

In 2008, the Musk couple divorced and agreed to joint custody of the children.

Within a short time, Elon Musk, who had just coped with a lengthy divorce, was seen with beautiful English actress Talulah Jane Riley-Milburn aka Talulah Riley.

Even though the ex-pair had some pretty good age differences, they stayed in courtship from 2008 until 2010, when they finally got hitched at Dornoch Cathedral, a church in Scotland. But, be that as it may, on the grounds of some unknown reasons, they dissolved their married in 2012.

When they were seen together again in 2013, people were shocked, and at the end of 2014, Elon and Talulah remarried.

Musk again filed for divorce from Talulah. He later withdrew it. Elon filed for a second divorce from Talulah on March 21, 2016, and the high court eventually concluded the separation in October 2016.

Amber Heard, the ex-wife of Johnny Depp, was also linked to Elon Musk last year. Musk, who had been carrying a torch for Heard, got the chance to date Heard for a couple of months.

However, both individuals were accused of infidelity when Musk was in an on-and-off relationship with Talulah, and Heard was still married to Johnny Deep.

Then, Musk finally met his soul mate, Grimes, in May 2018. They first met through a Twitter post, and when they realized they both have similar thinking, they decided to become partners for life. Grimes, whose actual title is Claire Elise Boucher, got pregnant with Musk’s child. On May 4, 2020, she delivered their son X AE A-Xii to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, United States.

Nevada’s father, Elon Musk, has always been the talk of the town. He always manages to get the fourth state’s attention with his out-of-the-blue statements.

He made a headline when he gave his child a unique name from Grimes, X Æ A-Xii. Unfortunately, the alphabets in this name are not part of modern English alphabets, which consequently violated California’s regulations. And after some time, the child’s name was modified into X AE A-Xii, pronounced as Kyle.

Along with it, Musk was oft-times criticized for spreading misleading information about the COVID-19 virus and for calling the COVID-19 pandemic dumb. Yet, he was so audacious to go and re-open Tesla’s Fremont Factory when the lockdown was going on. This action by him pissed off not only national but international media.
