In a heartwarming display of fatherly affection amidst a tumultuous custody battle, tech titan Elon Musk recently took his three-year-old son, X Æ A-Xii, to an exhilarating Army-Navy football game. Amidst a complex legal tussle with former partner, the singer Grimes, Musk seemed to momentarily set aside his worries to enjoy some quality time with his young son.

The scene at the storied Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts was one of familial warmth and joy as Musk, the 52-year-old CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, was spotted with X perched high on his shoulders. Fans and onlookers observed the billionaire entrepreneur, casually dressed in a gray tee and blue jacket, sharing light moments and laughter with friends.

The young X, sporting a green-and-black flannel top and jeans, seemed engrossed in the thrilling match where the Army Black Knights triumphed over the Navy Midshipmen with a close 17-11 score.

Musk's Joyful Game Day

A witness recounted to Page Six how Musk and his son appeared in the paddock, arriving well into the event.

“Musk was all smiles, engaging in banter before hoisting X onto his shoulders for a better view,” they noted, adding a glimpse into their departure to the Mercedes garage. Musk's Twitter feed, where he actively shares insights and experiences, featured a post from the game.

Captioning a clip with "ARMY NAVY," he playfully admitted his rooting for the Army team in a light-hearted exchange with a follower. The personal life of Elon Musk, however, remains complicated. He and Grimes, known for her eclectic music style, are parents to three children: X, two-year-old daughter Exa, and one-year-old Tau.

The custody of these children is currently a matter of legal contention. Musk initiated legal proceedings on September 8th, with Grimes responding with a counter-suit later in the month, as reported by US Weekly. In a poignant moment earlier in September, Grimes, in a now-deleted tweet, expressed her distress over the situation: “Tell Elon to let me see my son or please respond to my lawyer”.

This unfolding story, balancing Musk's public persona and private challenges, continues to captivate the public and media alike, as one of the world's most influential figures navigates the complexities of family life under the limelight.
