Elon Musk’s Child Vivian Jenna Wilson Granted Name And Gender Reassignment

Elon Musk’s 18-year-old child has been given a name and gender reassignment, making her officially Vivian Jenna Wilson.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ on Thursday, a Los Angeles County Supreme Court judge approved the request and asked the state for a new birth certificate to reflect the changes.

Vivian chose to remove Musk as her last name and chose Wilson, her mother Justine’s maiden name.

On Tuesday, it was announced that Vivian — nicknamed Xavier Alexander Musk at birth — had filed the petition in April, shortly after her 18th birthday.

TMZ reported that the teen cited her name change reason as “gender identity and the fact that I no longer live with or want to be related to my biological father.” [Elon] in any way, shape or form.”

Musk, 50, previously claimed to support transgender issues. In 2020, however, he came under fire for criticizing the use of preferred pronouns.

“I’m definitely in favor of trans, but all these pronouns are an aesthetic nightmare,” he said tweeted at the time, adding, “Pronouns suck.”

On the other hand, Mom Justine expressed how proud she was that Vivian lived authentically, quoting her on Twitter.

“‘I had a weird childhood,’ my 18-year-old told me,” Wilson, 49, wrote after news of Vivian’s gender and name change petition began circulating online.

Wilson then said to the teen, “I’m very proud of you,” to which Vivian replied, “I’m proud of myself!”
