His parents decided to have a baby only through in vitro fertilization after their first-born child Nevada Alexander Musk tragically died at 10-week.

A couple of months after Nevada’s passing, Damian’s mom Justine decided to go through IVF to conceive a baby. She once wrote,

“I buried my feelings instead, coping with Nevada’s death by making my first visit to an IVF clinic less than two months later. Elon and I planned to get pregnant again as swiftly as possible.”

In June 2022, Griffin Musk’s twin Xavier made headlines after the star kid has legally changed his gender from male to female. She has also changed her full name to Vivian Jenna Wilson.

Vivan actually filed legal docs in Santa Monica, California in April to change his name. The transgender teenage said they want to take their mother’s name.

Although the two parted ways long before, they still remain good friends and good parents to their kids.
