Although Griffin Musk has not started any career yet, many fans believe he and his siblings might take the footsteps of their famous father.

Griffin Musk’s father disliked their schools — So He Started His Own. “So you want to keep your kids away from regular schools?” a reporter asked Elon Musk in an interview. Musk replied: “I just didn’t see the regular schools weren’t doing the things I thought should be done. I thought, let’s see what we can do. Maybe creating a school would be better.”

Griffin Musk and his twin brother Xavier came into this world by In vitro fertilization (IVF).

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a process of fertilization where an egg is combined with sperm in vitro (“in glass”). The process involves monitoring and stimulating a woman’s ovulatory process, removing an ovum or ova (egg or eggs) from her ovaries, and letting sperm fertilize them in a culture medium in a laboratory. After the fertilized egg (zygote) undergoes embryo culture for 2–6 days, it is implanted in the woman or another woman’s uterus, with the intention of establishing a successful pregnancy. This is the same process by which Griffin Musk’s triplet brothers were also born.

The Elon Musk twins arrived two years after the passing of their elder brother, Nevada. At the very young and delicate age of just 10 weeks old, Nevada died of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Griffin Musk’s parents put her elder brother, Nevada to sleep, according to Ashlee Vance’s account, and when they returned, he was no longer breathing. 

Griffin Musk’s mother, Justine Wilson, is a writer from Canada. She has authored many novels, including ‘BloodAngel,’ ‘Uninvited,’ and ‘Lord of Bones.’ Griffin is the grandson of Canadian-South African dietician Maye Musk and engineer, sailor, and pilot Errol Musk.  His uncle and aunt are Kimbal and Tosca Musk.

How did his parents meet and fall in love and why did they divorce? Griffin musk’s parents, Elon and Justine first met in college. Elon was a year her senior. At first sight, he fell in love with Justine. He made the first move and asked her out on a date. Initially, Justine rejected his proposal, but he persisted, and on an ice-cream date, when she did not show up and chose to remain in the study, Elon stretched out to her with two chocolate chips ice-cream pouring down his palm, and their love story started. Both of them went to separate industries after college to follow their dreams.

However, Griffin musk’s father used to give flowers and communicate with his mother. Justine began teaching English as a second language in Japan and also began writing books. Justine used to visit Elon when he went to Silicon Valley to work on his first dot-com startup, Zip2. Elon gave her his credit card when they were at the library one day and said: “Buy as many books as you possibly can.” This remark made her fall even harder for him. After knowing one other for almost 10 years, the couple married in a beautiful ceremony in the presence of their friends, family, and loved one in 2000.

However, their marriage didn’t last ever, On September 13, 2008, Griffin Musk’s parents announced that they were getting a divorce. Justine and Musk share custody of Griffin Musk and his siblings. His mother later wrote an article for Marie Claire titled “I Was a Starter Wife” detailing ways in which she thought the marriage was unhealthy, including that her ex-husband frequently belittled her, discouraged her from career pursuits, and pressured her to dye her hair blonde. 

The loss of their son had undoubtedly taken a toll on the Musks. In the Marie Claire story, Griffin Musk’s mother said, “Elon made it obvious that he did not want to discuss Nevada’s death.” “I didn’t get it, just as he didn’t see why I was publicly grieving, which he said was ’emotionally manipulative.’ Instead, I suppressed my grief, coping with Nevada Alexander Musk’s death by going to an IVF facility for the first time less than two months later. Elon and I had hoped to conceive again as soon as possible.” And within the next five years, Griffin Musk’s parents had given birth to him, his twin brother, and then the triplets. 

Griffin Musk’s mother saw that his father’s response to the loss of their first kid resembled a protection mechanism he had acquired as a youngster. She told Esquire magazine, “He doesn’t do well in gloomy settings.” “He’s forward-thinking, and I believe it’s a matter of survival for him.”

“I’m not sure what to do in such circumstances.”

He also didn’t see why it was essential to grieve in public. “Talking about it made me really upset,” he allegedly stated. “I’m not sure why I’d want to discuss such tragic occurrences. It is detrimental to the future. If you have other children and responsibilities, wallowing in grief isn’t healthy for anyone.”

As of 2010, Griffin Musk’s mother claimed to be a “model former wife”, and said she was on good terms with Elon’s then-second wife, Talulah Riley. Griffin Musk’s mother has not made any statement regarding her current status. She’s either unmarried or really adept at concealing her personal life.
