Two years later, they welcomed their first son named Nevada Alexander Musk, but who unfortunately died from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDs) when he was only ten weeks old.
They then decided to try in vitro fertilization (IVF) to continue their family, and in April 2004, Jennifer gave birth to twin sons, Xavier and Griffin, after which they welcomed triplet sons, Damian and his two brothers, Kai and Saxon. His parents divorced in 2008, but they continued to share custody of the boys. Damian also has a younger half-brother, named X Æ A-12, from his father’s next marriage to Canadian singer Grimes.
Damian holds American nationality and belongs to White Caucasian ethnic group. He is of Canadian, British, and Pennsylvania Dutch descent. He is very close to his father and Elon spends all of his non-work hours with him and his brothers.
Regarding his education, Damian and his brothers were enrolled in a private school for gifted children in Los Angeles, California, however, their father wasn’t satisfied with their education, and founded his own private school for them – named Ad Astra, it stands for ‘to the stars’.

Who is His Father? Elon Musk Short Wiki/Bio
Elon Reeve Musk was born on 28 June 1971 under the zodiac sign of Cancer, in Pretoria, South Africa. He was raised by his father, Errol Musk, who was a consultant, electromagnetic engineer, pilot, sailor, and property developer, and his mother Maye Musk (née Haldeman), a model and dietitian. He has a younger brother, Kimbal Musk, a chef, restaurateur, and entrepreneur, and a younger sister, Tosca Musk, a filmmaker.
His parents divorced in 1980, after which he spent two years with his father, and then moved to Canada to live with his mother. He became interested in computing and video games very early, and bought his first computer at the age of ten. Within two years he’d learned computer programming, and created a video game entitled “Blastar”.
Regarding his education, Elon Musk went to Waterkloof House Preparatory School as well as Bryanston High School, before he matriculated from Pretoria Boys High School.
He then briefly attended the University of Pretoria for five months, after which he moved to Canada and enrolled into Queen’s University. Two years later, he transferred to the University of Pennsylvania, from which he obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Physics, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics in 1997. Concurrently, he did two internships in Silicon Valley – at Pinnacle Research Institute and Rocket Science Games. Thereafter, he pursued his Ph.D. degree in Materials Science at Stanford University, but dropped out two days later to join the Internet boom.
Rise to Stardom
In 1995, Elon Musk co-founded his first company called Zip2 Corporation, along with his brother Kimbal, which provided an online city guide software to newspapers.

The company became successful for a short time – they even collaborated with the Chicago Tribune and The New York Times, and it was then purchased by Compaq Computer for $307 million in 1999. The same year, he co-founded an online financial services and e-mail payment company called X.com, which eventually merged with the software company Confinity Inc. in 2000 to form the money-transfer service PayPal, for which he then served as its CEO. Two years later, the company was bought by eBay for $1.5 billion.
In 2001, Elon Musk became involved with the space advocacy non-profit organization “Mars Society”, which promotes the human exploration and settlement of the planet Mars.
It inspired him to build spacecraft for commercial space travel, so he bought refurbished Intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), and founded a company called Space Exploration Technologies Corp., traded as SpaceX, in the following year, to build rockets. He now serves as the company’s CEO and Chief Engineer. In 2008, the company was awarded the contract by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), to handle cargo transport for the International Space Station. A decade later, the company announced a 2023 lunar tourism mission, a private flight around the Moon called “dear Moon project”.
Tesla and Other Companies
In 2004, Elon Musk started serving in the position of chairman for the electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla Motors, Inc. (now Tesla, Inc.); four years later, he became its CEO and product architect. In 2006, he provided the initial capital for the solar energy services company SolarCity, later acquired by Tesla and became Tesla Energy in 2016. Besides that, he released a concept for the Hyperloop, a high-speed vactrain transportation system, and is the co-founder of OpenAI, a non-profit research company that promotes friendly artificial intelligence, launched in 2015. In the next year, he co-founded a neurotechnology company called Neuralink Corporation that develops implantable brain-machine interfaces (BMIs).
