Elon Musk visits Pope Francis with his children during trip to Italy

Elon Musk and his kids visit Pope Francis: Tesla CEO breaks his Twitter hiatus to share a photo of himself with the Pope before admitting his ill-fitting suit is ‘tragic’ when yelled at by followers

  • The richest man in the world met the Pope in the Vatican on Thursday
  • Musk, 50, was accompanied by four of his five teenage children
  • “Honored to meet @Pontifex yesterday,” he tweeted

Elon Musk met the Pope on Thursday and brought four of his seven children to the Vatican for the meeting.

“Honored to meet @Pontifex yesterday,” Musk tweeted.

He brought four of his five teenagers with him.

Musk was married to their mother, Canadian author Justine Wilson, from 2000 to 2008.

Their first son, Nevada, was born in 2002 and died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) after 10 weeks.

Musk and Wilson had five children: twin sons – Xavier and Griffin, 18 – and triplets: Damian, Kai and Saxon, now 16.

Earlier this year, Xavier filed the paperwork in Santa Monica, California, to become known as Vivian Jenna Wilson. The transgender teen explained in the April 18 document that they want to take their mother’s last name to distance themselves from their father.

It was unclear if Vivian was with her father.

The five teenagers have kept themselves fairly inconspicuous, even though their father has joint custody.

Musk also has two other children, X Æ A-Xii and Exa Dark Sideræl, who goes by Y, with Canadian singer Grimes.

After Musk posted the tweet, several comments made about the ill-fitting suit of the world’s richest man.

“My suit is tragic,” he accepted.

Musk was not raised Catholic.

The 50-year-old South African billionaire was baptized when he was young and attended Anglican Sunday School, but has said he doesn’t consider himself a Christian.

In January, Musk told: Babylon Bee: ‘I agree with the principles that Jesus advocated. There is great wisdom in the teachings of Jesus, and I agree with those teachings.”

He continued: ‘Things like ‘turning the other cheek’ are very important, as opposed to ‘an eye for an eye’. An eye for an eye makes everyone blind.

Forgiveness is important and treat people the way you want to be treated. “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

“But hey, when Jesus saves people, I mean, I won’t stand in his way.

‘Of course I will be saved. Why not?’
