Listen to this article

Tesla boss Elon Musk turns out to be a doting father too. In a classic dad moment, the entrepreneur was recently seen attending a meeting with son X Æ A-XII on his lap, and both seemed to be enjoying every moment of it. The video of the father-son duo went viral with Musk followers reacting enthusiastically. 

On Wednesday, Musk was speaking on SpaceX’s Starship program organised by the National Academies Space Studies Board. The entrepreneur started the session with son X on his lap. 

Committed to good parenting, Musk was seen communicating with his 16-month-old son. When a confused baby X mistakes rockets as cars, his father corrects him.

Baby X too seemed quite exited about sharing space with father. The entire time he remained glued to the screen, tapping on the table and babbling once in a while. 

As much as the viewers enjoyed their little tryst with baby X, he was taken inside a while later. 

Posting the video on Twitter, a follower writes, Thanks @elonmusk for bringing Baby X to the meeting! X looks very interested in Starship! To X, they are ‘cars!" — makes sense Rocket. Musk hits the like button for the post.

Meanwhile, Christian Davenport, Space reporter at The Washington Post, writes Elon and baby giving a Starship presentation. As he once told me, “Mars needs babies."

The video was later posted by YouTube channel SpaceXly. 

It was actually a fun and delightful watch for the viewers. SpaceXly in the comment section said, can someone please decode the Martian language Baby X is speaking, I think it has a lot of information for us, the humans!

Elon with the baby, chuckling as it coos at the vehicle that will likely be the fulcrum of humanity’s continued existence, is one of the most wholesome and heartwarming things I have ever seen.

Keep teaching that awesome kid of yours, Elon. We may need someone willing and able to carry your vision forward, said another on the Youtube channel.
