In a surprising revelation, the enigmatic billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk and musician Grimes have secretly welcomed their third child into the world.

The couple are known for their on-again, off-again relationship. Together they are already parents to three-year-old son X Æ A-12 and 19-month-old daughter Exa Dark Sideræl.

However, a new biography of Elon Musk by acclaimed journalist Walter Isaacson, simply titled ‘Elon Musk,’ has unveiled the existence of their previously undisclosed third child, officially named Techo Mechanicus but affectionately known as Tau.

The bombshell revelation came to light in an extensive review of Isaacson’s biography published by The New York Times. In the review, Isaacson delves into Musk’s personality, highlighting his aversion to pushback and a tendency to deride those who oppose him as saboteurs or idiots. Grimes, the mother of three of Musk’s children, candidly described his temperament as “demon mode,” a mindset that she believes propels him to accomplish great feats but also “causes a lot of chaos.”

The biography provides limited information about the newly revealed child, Tau Mechanicus. Details such as Tau’s birthdate, birthplace, and any additional insights about his life remain undisclosed. Representatives for both Elon Musk and Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, have yet to make any official comments about the child.

Grimes, known for her unique music and artistic ventures, recently shared that her older children, X and Y, have developed a keen interest in their father’s pursuits, particularly in space exploration and engineering.

The couple’s growing family continues to attract attention and curiosity.
