Musk was not only bashed for the kid's name, but also for the fact he has 11 children with three different women.

"Keeping going. 11 players already, they need a coach," one person wrote, while another added, "Elon Musk will have a football team by this time next year."

"He can afford it, that is all that matters," someone else pointed out, while another user sarcastically noted, "Elon is committed to populating the earth."

As OK! previously reported, Musk, 52, and Grimes, 35, also share 1-year-old daughter Exa Dark Sideræl — nicknamed "Y" — and 3-year-old son X Æ A-12.

While the two ended their romance in 2022, they are still very involved in each other's lives. Grimes recently spoke about Musk in an interview addressing the possible fight her baby daddy might have with tech mogul Mark Zuckerberg.

The wealthy duo were previously joking on social media about having a cage fight. When asked if she believed it would actually happen, the Canadian singer said, "I think so."

"Elon is very strong," she weighed in. "But Zuck seems like he's been training a ton."

However, the mother-of-three did clarify that she would "prefer that it didn't happen" at all.

"I love gladiatorial matches, but watching the father of your children in a physical fight is not the most pleasant feeling," she noted. "But it's not going to cause brain damage, so actually I think this is good."

"Dudes need some outlet for trad masculinity," she explained. "I told [OpenAI CEO] Sam Altman there should be a follow-up, him against [Google DeepMind CEO] Demis [Hassabis]."

The New York Times reported on the book review.
