The name of Elon Musk's 11th child has been revealed in a new biography about the tech mogul's life. The biography will be released on Tuesday, September 12.

According to a book review published in the New York Times, Elon privately welcomed a third child with singer Grimes. The former couple named their son Techno Mechanicus. 

No further details were revealed about when Techno was born. Elon and Grimes welcomed their first child together, X Æ A-12 (now X Æ A-Xii) in 2020.

One year later, in December 2021, their second child was born via a surrogate. Her name is Exa Dark Sideræl.

Elon reportedly has a total of 11 children, including twins with Shivon Zilis. The twins' names were revealed to be Strider and Azure in a Times interview published last week. 

Pictures of the twins, and Elon's other children, were also included in the piece. The images were taken by Walter Isaacson, the journalist behind 52-year-old's upcoming biography. 


News of Elon's unique baby name comes a few days after it was revealed that Rihanna and her boyfriend A$AP Rocky named their second son Riot Rose

Their first son is named RZA. 

Next to Techno Mechanicus and X Æ A-Xii, Riri's baby names seem pretty normal!
