The renowned SpaceX innovator, Elon Musk, has recently found himself amidst a complex battle over parental rights with his former partner, the eclectic musician Grimes. Amidst this tumultuous period, Musk has ensured to spend quality time with his 3-year-old son, X AE A-XII, a testament to his commitment to fatherhood.

This past Sunday, the pair were spotted at the high-octane Formula 1 Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, a setting that was a stark contrast to the ongoing legal proceedings. Young X was the picture of happiness, radiating joy as he perched atop his father's shoulders, navigating the event in a golf cart.

The toddler's outfit was casual yet adorable, featuring a blue T-shirt, comfortable pants, and sneakers.

Musk's Casual Arrival at F1

Elon Musk, the mind behind Tesla, opted for an all-black ensemble as he made his way to the Circuit of the Americas track.

A source revealed to Page Six that "Elon arrived in the paddock more than an hour after the race began. He was smiling and laughing with a few friends before putting X on his shoulders and walking to the Mercedes garage”.

This father-son outing comes on the heels of a legal showdown between Musk and Grimes over the parental rights of X and his siblings. In a quiet move, the ex-couple welcomed their daughter, Exa Dark Siderael, via surrogate in December 2021, who is now one year old.

Further investigation into Walter Isaacson's latest biography of Elon Musk, reviewed by the New York Times in September, suggests that Musk and Grimes may also share another child, Techno Mechanicus. Details about this child remain a closely guarded secret, with their name, sex, and birth date shrouded in mystery.

On September 13, the 52-year-old business mogul filed a legal petition in Texas, aiming to secure custody of their children. Not long after, on September 29, Grimes, aged 35, initiated similar proceedings in California, marking the latest chapter in their ongoing parental rights saga.
