Elon Musk has a surprisingly large brood as dad to eight children. He shares six of them with his first wife Justine Wilson — twins Griffin and Xavier, 18, and triplets Damian, Saxon, and Kai, 16, as well as a son named Nathan whom they lost at just two months due to sudden infant death syndrome.

The Tesla founder is also dad to one-year-old son X Æ A-12 and newborn daughter Exa, both whom he shares with Grimes.

As for why he decided to have so many children? Elon recently said there aren't enough people in the world, which could eventually cause civilization to crumble.

”I try to set a good example. Gotta practice what I preach," Elon joked.

“Men kind of look at me like, ‘He’s crazy. How much did that shit cost?’ And women, it’s kind of like, something sexy about it I think. [They’re like], ‘Eddie Murphy must be doing this thing. Eddie Murphy be getting it in.' It seems OK...I like it. I’m happy with it,” Eddie said on The Ellen Show.
