Personal life[edit]

She married Elon Musk, founder of PayPal, SpaceX, and Tesla Motors in January 2000. Their first son, Nevada, died of sudden infant death syndrome at the age of 10 weeks.[7]

Through IVF, she later gave birth to twin boys, Griffin and Xavier, in 2004; followed by triplets Damian, Saxon, and Kai in 2006.[8] On September 13, 2008, she announced that she was divorcing Musk. She later wrote an article for Marie Claire about their relationship.[7] She claims to have been a "model ex-wife", on good terms with Musk's second wife, Talulah Riley.[9][10] She currently lives in Bel Air, California, with their five sons.[citation needed]
