It is a widely accepted prediction that the Earth is overpopulated, with many scientists voicing their concern about what it means for the future.
It is something the SpaceX boss is deeply concerned about and the reason he decided to have so many children.
Speaking at the Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council Summit, he said: “There are not enough people, I can’t emphasise this enough. There are not enough people.
“If people don’t have more children, civilisation is going to crumble. Mark my words.”
When asked why he decided to have so many kids, he joked: “I try to set a good example. Gotta practise what I preach.”
Now, one of his children has come out as transgender and is seeking a complete identity change to distance themselves from their father.
Here’s everything known about the billionaire’s kids.

In 2004, Justine gave birth to twins Griffin and Xavier with help from IVF.
The twins, now 18, have remained largely out of the public eye, but his child who was formerly known as Xavier recently announced they are transitioning and now wish to be known as Vivian Jenna Wilson.
In the court documents, Vivian wrote: “I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form.”
According to TMZ, she wants to now be known as Vivian Jenna Wilson.

After having twins together, Elon and Justine later had triplets in 2006.
It would be the last children the pair would have together, as they divorced in 2008.
The triplets are now 15 years old, with Elon sharing custody with Justine after the divorce.
Once again, Elon has never publicly commented on the situation with his three sons.
X Æ A-Xii
Elon Musk shares X Æ A-Xii with popstar Grimes
The most famous of Elon’s children and for good reason, X Æ A-Xii has one of the must unique names of any celebrity child.
The son of Elon and musician Grimes was originally going to be named X Æ A-12.
However, the name had to be changed as it was not in accordance with Californian law, which prohibits the use of symbols such as Æ and numbers like 12.
The new name is pronounced Ex Ash A Twelve.
For a while, followers of the couple had no clue what the name actually meant, until Grimes clarified its meaning on Twitter.
She wrote: “X, the unknown variable. Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence).
“A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favourite aircraft). No weapons, no defences, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent.
“+ (A=Archangel, my favourite song) (metal rat).”
Exa Dark Sideræl Musk
Elon Musk and Grimes share two children
Elon’s newest addition to the Musk dynasty is Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, the second child he shares with Grimes.
Born in March 2022, the child is known as Y, with her older brother X Æ A-Xii simply being known as X.
According to Vanity Fair, Exa comes from the computing term exaFlops, giving the child its unique name.
According to Grimes, Sideræl on the other hand means: “The true time of the universe, star time, deep space time, not our relative earth time.”
