Elon Musk was photographed happily playing with his 2-year-old son at a Miami event on Tuesday evening.
The entrepreneur shares the youngster with his on-off-girlfriend Grimes, and he previously came under fire in 2020 when he oddly christened the child ‘X AE A-XII’.

The 2-year-old stole the show as his rich father joined a conference panel discussion on stage at Miami’s Fontainebleau Hotel.
Elon Musk brought his son on stage to applause from the audience, and the boy appeared at ease in the spotlight as he ate a cookie.
Elon Musk, 51, is expecting his first child with artist Grimes in May 2020.
The billionaire has nine known children with three women, including another kid with Grimes via a surrogate named Exa Dark Siderael, who was born in December 2021.
Elon Musk faced backlash for naming his baby ‘X AE A-XII,’ known as ‘X’ by his musician ex-girlfriend.
Elon Musk also fathered twins with Shivon Zilis, an executive at his tech startup Neuralink, barely a month before his surrogate child with Grimes.
Musk’s love life has long been a source of speculation, with the Space X creator going through a string of divorces and high-profile partnerships in recent years.
In the year 2000, he married his first wife, Justine Wilson. Nevada, their first son, died tragically at the age of ten weeks in 2002 before the couple welcomed twins Gryphon and Xavier in 2004.
Elon Musk and Wilson had triplets Kai, Saxon, and Damian in 2006, using IVF to conceive all five children.
Musk began dating British actress Talulah Riley after the couple split in 2008, and she has starred in films such as Inception and Pride and Prejudice.
Their first marriage lasted only two years after they married in 2010, and Riley reportedly received $16 million in the divorce settlement.
The couple wedded the following summer before divorcing again in December 2014. The divorce petitions were dropped the next year until Riley sought a third and final divorce from Musk in 2016.
Elon Musk then dated actress Amber Heard, 35, for several months in late 2016 and early 2017, after allegedly stalking her for years.
Johnny Depp, Heard’s ex-husband, later accused her of cheating on him with Musk while they were still married, but Musk and Heard both denied the affair.
They divorced in the summer of 2017, and he later told Rolling Stone that he was really in love with Heard and that their breakup ‘hurt deeply.’
In April 2018, he began dating artist Grimes, and the unusual couple made news when they made their red carpet-debut at the Met Gala the following month.
In May 2020, the couple welcomed their son ‘X AE A-XII’ after a series of breakups and reconnections. Grimes shares two of Musk’s nine children with the birth of their second child the following year.
