How to Write an Essay on How to Act Like a Celebrity

Essay assignments tend to be quite diverse; this means that you can be asked to tackle a wide range of topics, some being more creative than others. Such a topic could be regarding acting like a celebrity, which is definitely something interesting to talk about. It allows you to challenge your imagination and to analyze a situation that, otherwise, might have missed your attention. This is what makes you a critical analytic and thinker.

With that in mind, we’ll outline the main tips and tricks that will come in handy for the writing of such an essay. If you are a bit clueless regarding where to start, we believe that these tips will come in handy.

First Things First: Brainstorm

Before you can get on to the writing process per se, it is common sense to put some time aside for brainstorming. This entails coming up with new, perhaps innovative ideas on the topic, as opposed to simply restating the same things you’ve read over and over again. Whilst it goes without saying that researching is an important component of essay writing, you have to bring your own contribution to the essay, this is something the teacher will appreciate.

The reason why so many people look for proficient essay writing services online, such as Write My Paper, is precisely this one: they are frightened to channel their inner creativity and come up with something new. But the truth is that, when there’s a will, there’s a way, and you shouldn’t give up on yourself.

Even if you feel a bit insecure, take a sheet of paper and a pen, and write the ideas that pop in your mind when you think about acting like a celebrity. In addition, determine how you want to approach the topic: from a positive or from a negative angle?

One thing is for sure, when you are interested in the topic you are writing about, the entire task is simplified.

Structuring Your Essay

Once you’ve got the foundation of the essay – namely the ideas that comprise the paper, you can move on to writing. You’ll see that writing becomes infinitely easier when you already have a range of ideas in your mind. This is something that students fail to take into consideration, but it can really be life-changing.

Even if the content of the essay is of utmost importance, as it is what allows you to make a point on the chosen topic, the structure shouldn’t be overlooked. A well-structured essay is easier to read, the ideas can be grasped on the spot, the reader doesn’t have to go over the same paragraph over and over again in order to get the idea. This is what ultimately makes the difference between a mediocre piece of writing and a good piece of writing: when good structure is combined with quality content.

First and foremost, the order of the paragraphs should be logical. They should be arranged depending on the ideas you are presenting, and you should reread the paper a couple of time to ensure that everything makes sense. When you are writing a paper, such things as the fluidity of thought might overlook your focus, since you are the writer and you know what you intended to say. But think of it this way: the teacher doesn’t know precisely what you meant, you have to convince him/her through the writing, and the writing should be as clear as possible.

Obviously, you should pay utmost attention to each component of the writing – namely the introduction, the body, and the conclusion. The introduction should clearly state what you’re planning to concentrate on in the body, whereas the body should entail the main ideas and points regarding acting like a celebrity.

As for the conclusion, it should be compelling. At this point, the reader should be 100 percent confident that the purpose of the paper has been met.

Editing and Proofreading

When you’re done with writing the essay, your work is still not done. The next step is that of editing and proofreading. At this stage, you have to try to read the essay through the perspective of a third party. Try to be as objective as possible. If you have the possibility of asking a colleague or friend to read and evaluate the paper, do that. It will give you a new outlook on your own writing, allowing you to make the necessary adjustments to truly make it stand out.

In conclusion, these practices will most likely allow you to write a convincing, excellent paper on the topic of acting like a celebrity. You should first clarify your viewpoints on acting like a celebrity, and the actions that are associated with this, and afterward, follow the tips above and you’ll be on the right path – we guarantee you that.

Have You Ever Met a Very Shy Celebrity?

 7 Introverted Stars with Hearts of Gold

Keira Knightley

Sometimes, fame and fortune can get to a person’s head that they start abandoning their humanity in search of something that will quench the unending thirst for it. What these people don’t realize is that the empty feeling they have even after bagging numerous awards cannot be filled by money or other material things— it needs a taste of human affection.

This is something that several celebrities who, interestingly admitted to being shy or introverted, have decided to use their wealth and influence to make the world a better place.

 Salma Hayek-Pinault

Known as the Latina actress with a knack for comedy, drama, suspense, and everything in between, Salma Hayek-Pinault admitted that she suffers from stage fright. Considering her extensive background in acting, it comes as a surprise that the gorgeous 52-year-old star has trouble standing in front of huge crowds.

Despite this, Hayek-Pinault doesn’t shy away from helping others. In fact, she is among those in the frontline when it was time to raise awareness about gender inequality all over the world.

One of her notable accolades is receiving the Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award from UNICEF for her contributions in raising over $700,000 for the victims of the devastating earthquake in Mexico in September 2017.

 

Johnny Depp

Famous for his eccentric characters on the big screen, Johnny Depp admitted that he lives “like a fugitive” and would prefer to observe and not be the one being observed.

Despite this, he had been the center of attention due to his support for numerous charities, including British organization War Child and the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. He was also applauded for his annual donation to Great Ormond Street Hospital where his daughter was treated in 2007 for kidney failure.

 

Jessica Simpson

As an American Idol alum, Jessica Simpson’s talents were tested on stage before she got to where she is. This was incredibly challenging considering that she considers herself quite the timid person.  Even so, she believes that it is in her fate to share her talent with the world.

She even went above-and-beyond to use her gift to better the world by being one of Operation Smile’s international youth ambassadors. When she joined the organization, she has already helped raise as much as $4 million from television news coverages.

 

Kim Kardashian West

As a reality TV star, Kim Kardashian West’s life is broadcasted to the world. Even so, that doesn’t change the fact that she is someone “who’s too shy to dance in a nightclub.” Contrary to what people know, she is actually quite reserved and not loud at all.

Still, she finds a way to make the world a better place by volunteering at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles where she continually drops by to visit sick kids for several years now. In fact, she had already accumulated 7 years of volunteer work before the media even caught on to her doing it. She also donated quite a significant sum for the improvement of their facilities.

 

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba is an actress and a businesswoman, so it can be quite surprising to learn that she is very shy and doesn’t like to be the focus of attention. Still, she soldiers through the embarrassment to make quality movies as well as helping people find a better alternative to baby products that contain harsh chemicals.

With her business partners, Alba was able to establish The Honest Company and dedicates its resources to developing eco-friendly and non-toxic products for babies. To top that off, her company also donates part of their revenue and products to charities like Clothes Off Our Back, Habitat for Humanity, SOS Children Villages, and Project HOME.

 

Keira Knightley

Known for starring alongside Johnny Depp in the Pirates of the Caribbean, Keira Knightley was very shy when she was still in her twenties. However, she had finally gotten over this and became the person she is now— someone who’s willing to go over borders to shed light on other people’s plight.

To be more specific, the 33-year-old actress went to South Sudan to help raise awareness about the hellish condition displaced residents are suffering from. Taking a page from Angelina Jolie’s philanthropic acts, she decided to show the world how people in South Sudan are suffering.

 

Lady Gaga

Although she may not look like it, Lady Gaga admits that she “just wants to keep to herself.” Her music, as liberating as it is for many, exudes how she struggled to get out of her shell and show the world her wonderful, colorful self despite the feeling of not fitting in.

In fact, she also used her shyness to help teenagers who feel the same way by establishing the Born This Way Foundation, a non-profit organization aimed at educating people about mental health and promoting kindness all over the world.

Confidence is Golden

Confidence comes in many forms. In this situation, celebrities who admitted they aren’t as bold as they seem showed that fame, fortune, and influence can bear good fruits when used the right way.

Ancient World Celebrities

Chang and Eng Bunker: Siamese Twins

Let’s face it – celebrities are weird. Living life under the watchful eye of the public can do things to people, though some celebrities are already weird before they became famous. Some people get famous because they’re weird (hello, Poppy!), intriguing people to the point where they’ve become viral.

Which brings us to the question: who’s the weirdest among the weird?

Well, luckily for you, we’ve decided to make a list of the top 5 weirdest (and ancient) celebrities out there – or, at least, the weirdest reasons why they got famous, anyway.

Chang and Eng Bunker: Siamese Twins

These twins have defied all that we know about conjoined twins. Scientists say that conjoined twins only live for a couple of years before passing away, or, if they’re lucky, they live through decades but in bad health and physical state. The Bunker twins have lived a normal life (save for, you know, being stuck together and all), even going on to marry and have children – a reported 22 children, in fact.

Conjoined by a piece of cartilage in their sternum, these twins have pretty much been through it all. They were discovered by Robert Hunter and bought them as slaves (for $300, can you imagine!) and shipped them off to Boston from their hometown Siam, now known as Thailand, and was also the origin of their name Siamese Twins. In Boston, they went on to join P.T. Barnum’s circus before comfortably retiring in 1838.

P.T. Barnum

Introducing the Siamese twins brings us to the next person on our list – P. T. Barnum. Honestly, if you want to talk weird, this guy is it, considering he did start what was considered to be the “greatest travelling show on Earth.” Phineas Taylor Barnum was just a simple man before who owned a lottery store until they were banned in Connecticut, the place he was residing in. He then moved to New York and started work as a showman. After the Panic of 1837 and three years of financial struggle, he finally built himself up again when he bought and reinvented Scudder’s American Museum to Barnum’s American Museum.

Because life is oftentimes unfair and full of ups and downs, his museum got burned down in 1865. Five years later, he started the “Barnum and Bailey Brothers Greatest Show,” showcasing people with abnormalities and disabilities on display, being labelled as “freaks.” These acts included the Siamese twins, the Bearded Lady, dwarfs, and many others who were deemed to be “outcasts” of society, simply because of how they looked. These exhibitions are what made P.T. Barnum famous until today, with his life being made into a fictional biopic called The Greatest Showman.

Tutankhamun

Yes, it’s quite a jump from P.T. Barnum, but we did say ancient world celebrities, and who better than the young king himself? Tutankhamun was the youngest known king of Egypt which brought on the name “the boy king.” Considered as Egypt’s most famous’ pharaohs, he’s not exactly weird but mysterious – there’s still no final word on how he died. With the many injuries found in his body, some say that he died because of a chariot accident or in a battlefield during war. Conspiracy theorists say he was murdered – but that’s another story for another time.

What’s weird about Tutankhamun is not the way he died but the mystery that surrounds him. It’s said that he has “the pharaoh’s curse,” said that ‘the most dire form of punishment would follow any rash intruder into the sealed tomb.’ No curse was actually found in the tomb (we think) but deaths of those who either discovered him or visited him would cause a media frenzy among those who believe in his curse. Talk about creepy!

Blackbeard

There’s not much weird stuff about him except for the fact that he’s called ‘Blackbeard’… and the fact that he burns his beard before battle. Edward Teach, also known as ‘Blackbeard’ because of his, well, black beard, was a legendary pirate who sailed the seas of the Caribbean, the coast of Mexico, and Eastern North America.

Many stories have been told about him that are either true or not. One story that we know is true is that he lit his beard on fire before battle so it would give him a more intimidating appearance. Of course, he didn’t light his whole beard on fire, but he did put little candles and pieces of fuse in his beard to scare his enemies – and it worked. We don’t blame them, we’d be terrified if we saw him totally calm about his beard being on fire, too!

Salvador Dali

We absolutely cannot finish this list without possibly one of the weirdest dudes of them all – Salvador Dali. Born in Catalonia, Spain, Salvador Dali was an artist who made paintings and sculptures. He was mainly involved in surrealism, a type of art that showed dream-like scenes that would be impossible in real life.

The one thing that made him stand out was his moustache. It became his trademark look, growing out from his face and pointing upwards as it grew. His paintings were weird and out-of-this-world, exploring themes like war and love. The man himself was pretty eccentric – just take one of his most famous quotes as a testament to how weird he is: “I don’t do drugs. I am drugs.” What a guy!

 

What Happened To Kim’s Burger King Chain?

 

In 2014, Kanye West reportedly bought then-girlfriend Kim Kardashian 10 Burger King franchises across France, Italy, and the UK as a wedding present. A lot of people thought that was a pretty bizarre gift, but considering that Kim practically has everything she can possibly want (and more), the title “international businesswoman” that naturally came with the ownership was something she didn’t really have at the time. And this was admittedly a little more impressive than gold. On the other hand, possibly that was one of the points of Burger King marketing strategy to win an eternal battle against McDonald’s. Who knows?

Burger King

Kim Kardashian is known for her highly successful personal brand, driven mostly by the reality TV show that she and her entire family star in: “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” According to an unnamed source, Kanye reportedly said that investing in the business and giving Kim this level of stability away from the camera is a preparation for the future; that is, for a life that’s far away from having cameras trained at them all the time. And with that, Kanye West became the poster child for the “ideal husband.” Forget about jewelry and trips to Europe; marry the one who gives you a successful burger chain in Europe and multiply it by ten.

And tie the knot they did, twice, at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, and in Paris, France, in a wedding that reportedly came with a $12 million price tag. It sounds insane, but Kanye was definitely willing to shell out just to make his bride happy. Plus, they can afford it — and all of us spectators can only wish that we, too, become so wealthy and financially stable to confidently flash money at milestones like these.

More than all the glitz and glamour, Kanye’s investment that will have the couple and their kids set for life, and possibly for generations after, is something that we all applaud. So, now, we come to the question: what has happened to Kim Kardashian’s Burger King chain in Europe four years after?

 

Kim K’s European Burger King Chain

Scouring the web for more information on exactly which branches Kim owns across the continent didn’t turn up any results, although what we do know is that they are located in the UK, Italy, and France. Now, as an avid fans of the Burger King franchise, there is no doubt that these shops are likely still in operation and that business remains booming.

A quick look into the company’s financials: it recorded a $1.06 billion revenue in 2014, when the 10 chains were given to Kim, and then posted a $1.22 billion revenue in 2017. That statistic consists of numbers across the brand’s over 14,000 restaurants worldwide. It’s not a clear indicator of how Kim’s branches are faring, right? Here’s where it gets interesting.

While 50 percent of its branches are located in the US, the company lists Europe and the Middle East (EMEA) as its second largest contributor to sales. And given that the UK, France, and Italy are not some backwoods cities in the region, it’s safe to say that Kanye’s gift continues to be a very sound (and even growing) investment.

You all can say “not nice” things about Kanye (and some maybe even rightfully deserved), but you can deny that this guy is a business genius. If you continue to watch “KUWTK,” you also know that their marriage is A-OK and everything’s sunny where they are right now.

 

Kim, Kanye, and Chicken

Now, why all this discussion about the couple’s Burger King investments all of a sudden? The Internet kinda broke again (at least just a little bit) recently after Kim posted a cheat day meal on social media, which consisted of some gummy snacks, chocolate, and Popeye’s Chicken feast. The couple had just returned from Paris and ordered in for late night snack in Los Angeles before heading out to Teyana Taylor’s listening party for her new #KTSE album.

In the caption, she wrote “This Popeyes is exactly what I needed fresh off the plane,” and basically showed to her millions of followers that, hey, everybody loves chicken and binge eat sometimes. They might have gone from having a taste of all the luxury and excellent food that Paris has to offer, but nothing hits the spot just right as good old American Popeye’s fried chicken. Sometimes, all you really need is a taste of home.

Kim and Kanye both follow an uber-strict diet program and the fact that Kanye even allowed her indulge (even for just a night) just goes to show how awesome of a guy he is (at least as a husband). The rapper may be many things, but seeing how he is with Kim and their kids, nobody can take away the great husband and dad title from him. Strange gifts aside, if Kim likes them, then who are we to complain?

How I Met Clint Eastwood

Los Angeles is the place to be when you want to accidentally bump into Hollywood actors and actresses; this is perhaps the reason why so many tourists flock to the city every day in the hopes of getting a sighting. Like us regular folks, Hollywood stars do need to shop and eat out, too, so seeing a few on a week-long trip is expected. Most of the sightings are of the younger actors shopping with their kids, grabbing a latte before heading to the gym, meeting up with friends at a restaurant, or doing some other random activity that brings them into a state of normalcy.

However, that one time I was out with the family to visit an aunt in Silver Lake, I didn’t expect to bump into a legendary film icon — and in the most awkward of ways. That was the time I met Clint Eastwood.

Now before I go on to tell the tale of how I met one of the greatest actors ever, let me give some context on who Clint Eastwood is (for the sake of the millennials) and why I am over the moon with our encounter.

Clint Eastwood 101

American actor Clint Eastwood is best known for his role as anti-hero police officer Harry Callahan in all five “Dirty Harry” films that came out the in the 1970s to 1980s. Combined with a host of other Western-themed movies, the actor has since earned the ever-enduring role as an icon of masculinity.

Wherever there’s a storyline for a mysterious yet appealing tough guy that slays with just his powerful stance, you can expect him to nail it every single time. The actor is already 88 years old as of this writing, so you might even have seen your mom or your grandma fawn over him every time he appears on screen through the years. Yes, his appeal has transcended and survived several generations — so when you do finally get to see him in person, your tongue falls to the back of your mouth and, you become mute.

Other Clint Eastwood movies of note include “Unforgiven,” “Million Dollar Baby,” “The Bridges of Madison County,” “Mystic River,” “Letters from Iwo Jima,” and “American Sniper.”

The actor recently came out after a six-year hiatus from filming with “The Mule,” which was released in July this year. This is his first on-screen role since “Trouble with the Curve,” which came out in 2012, where he portrayed an aging baseball talent scout looking for another shot in the industry. “The Mule” is loosely based on a true story about one of the oldest drug mules known in US history, Leo Sharp, who was caught at 87 years old in 2011 for smuggling a large amount of cocaine into the country.

The Day I Met (?) Clint Eastwood

So what happened to me and Clint Eastwood? First of all, I did see him in June, from afar, in Philadelphia while they were filming “The Mule,” which stars Bradley Cooper. A crowd was gathered near First Community Bank, and people were being ushered to a specific spot to avoid accidentally getting filmed.

Now I was in my usual non-caring self and walking towards the bank area — I did not know someone was shooting a movie. I was on Bluetooth and engaged in a hissing match with my sister over something that happened over dinner the night before (let’s not go into those details anymore). I simply thought there was a new store being launched and never really noticed the large cameras in the area. I stopped somewhere I found some chairs and leaned against one to stay steady. Needless to say, the muttering and stuttering continued until I heard some people say “SHHH” and when I looked up I swear I made serious eye contact with Clint Eastwood himself, who was seated and apparently trying to direct a scene.

I grumbled some “sorrys,” walked away, and accidentally knocked over one of the mic stands. I was hoping it wasn’t a major issue because I found myself running as fast I could before anybody could recognize me. So, no, that was not the day I met Clint Eastwood.

The Actual Meet

So we were finally in LA about two weeks after that to visit my mom’s sister and, by a twist of fate, saw Clint Eastwood himself coming toward my direction while I was getting out of Starbucks. He was dressed in regular clothes but me knowing who he is had me creating a halo of light all over him that my mother said I had literally stopped in my tracks and frozen. Flashbacks of what happened back in Philadelphia came rushing in, and I swear I just blanked out.

He must have noticed my weird face and said “Hey there, you okay?” and all I could blurt out was “I tripped over your mic stand in Philly.” I don’t know if he did remember or if he was just being the polite man that he is because he said “I’m sure it was fine” and gave me a quick pat on the shoulder before continuing off, with my mom, my sister, and my aunt waving “Hi’s” and “Bye’s” in his path.

And THAT is how I met legendary Hollywood icon and god of acting Clint Eastwood.

Helping immigrant families: the stories of success

War, poverty, trafficking. These are just some of the challenges many immigrants and refugees had to run away from. Leaving everything behind and risking their lives only to seek refuge in countries like America, they hoped for better lives away from the nightmares they grew up in.

But life isn’t easy, even for these poor souls that have traveled a long way with just their shadows as companies.

These are the moments that give birth to amazing stories of generosity, hope, and love. Through sites like GoFundMe, ordinary people are able to help immigrants and their families.

Here are stories of success that will bring back your faith in humanity.

Charlotte and David Willner with President Clayton Rose

Charlotte and David Willner

This couple gained popularity recently, earning praise for breaking the record for fundraising for immigrant children.

Charlotte and David Willner from Silicon Valley live with their two-year-old daughter. According to reports, the couple decided to take action and raise funds when they saw the now infamous photo of a Honduran girl crying while her mother was being detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers.

The heartbreaking photo was captured by Getty photographer John Moore who only had time to ask the mother and daughter where they were from.

The couple decided to raise funds that will go directly to The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES). This is a group that provides free and low-cost legal services to immigrants and refugees.

The fundraiser was posted on Facebook this June. It blew up and went viral. Initially, the fundraiser started at $1,500 until people were donating around $4,000 every minute.

As of writing, the total fund collected is over $20.7 million.

 

David Bilger, Robin Korevaar, and Leann Burger

“Bombings were a constant threat.”

This was what Baset, a 17-year-old Afghan trumpet player said when he was asked about his experience in Afghanistan. Baset was a student at Afghanistan National Institute of Music which taught both Afghan and Western music. But the school was a constant target for insurgents as they reserve slots for girls – a strictly forbidden rule under the Taliban regime.

After ANIM’s trumpet teacher left the school, Baset was left behind without an instructor.

Not giving up on his dreams, he turned to the internet to teach himself. That’s when he came across David Bilger, Principal Trumpet of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Baset reached out to him, and soon after, David offered free lessons for the young boy via Skype.

Baset soon approached David to talk about his dream of learning music in America. With the help of Robin Korevaar, a former visiting teacher in ANIM, they were able to raise funds to bring Baset to America in 2016.

But the story doesn’t end there.

Baset has to have the money to stay in America for college. With the help of Leann Burger, a new campaign was launched. It successfully raised over $85,000 for the young boy.

 

Gissur Simonarson

One of the most unforgettable events of 2015 was when a Syrian refugee and his sleeping daughter went viral. It was one of the most memorable photos that showed the plights of a refugee seeking shelter away from war.

The man, named Abdul Halim al-Attar, can be seen selling pens to motorists under the scorching heat of the sun, with his sleeping daughter on his shoulders. It was the only way he was able to earn money and provide food for his family.

The photo garnered so much attention until Gissur Simonarson, a journalist and web developer in Norway started a fundraiser for the man. After posting the pictures, he was overwhelmed with requests to help the man.

The fundraiser was known as “buying pens,” and it was launched to get enough money for the family to survive

The goal was to raise $5,000 for the family. But it went overboard and garnered over $189,000. Everything was given to Abdul and his family.

Now, according to the Telegraph, Abdul is in a much better place with three business: a bakery, a kebab shop, and a small restaurant. His daughter has also gone back to school, and his family moved to a two-bedroom apartment.

Apart from investing, Abdul also sent some money to his fellow refugees in Syria.

 

Heroes of Today

Becoming a hero in somebody else’s story takes courage. In a world filled with war, vanity, and chaos, it’s hard to take time to actually listen to other people’s story – to think about others rather than ourselves.

These people may have only clicked a few buttons on the internet. But they have opened and paved a pathway for these immigrants and refugees to a better future.

They are not the only heroes in these stories. These people who never gave up protecting their families and reaching their dreams the ones who are truly strong.

7 Things You Don’t Know About Elon Musk’s Children

Elon Musk. Even his name exudes (pun intended) a certain level of mystery.

As the founder SpaceX, business magnate, and investor, Musk is considered as one of the most influential personalities today because of his contributions to society and space travel.  Born in South Africa, this man’s origins were not a barrier to what he would eventually give to the world.

Elon Musk Unmasked

Currently, there are tons of trivia about Elon Musk available online, aside from his official descriptions as the billionaire who co-founded PayPal and Tesla. He also makes things out of sci-fi movies a reality— literally. People have consistently termed him as the “real-life Tony Stark” the genius-playboy-billionaire-philanthropist-hero of Marvel.

But what most people don’t know (or may only catch glimpses of) is that Musk has a highly turbulent personal life. Like many men with big aspirations, the 47-year-old technology and business mogul cannot seem to find the perfect woman to settle down with.

In fact, a report revealed that he isn’t very keen when it comes to talking about his personal life on a regular basis despite his celebrity status. He even claimed to prefer “sticking a fork in [his] hand” than reveal details of his personal life on one article where he was forced to clarify some “inaccuracies” about his divorce with his first wife, Justine Wilson.

One thing that was revealed over the years that makes Elon Musk like any other average Joe is his fear of being alone. In fact, there was one time when he admitted that the only thing he wanted as a child was never to be alone.

This may also be the reason why he can’t seem to stay put in a romantic relationship as he has been married thrice (once with Justine Wilson and twice with British actress Talulah Riley) and decided to father as many children as he can.

Still, there is still a lot that needs to be uncovered about Elon Musk and his personal life – and that includes his mysterious children.

The Musketeers: 7 Things You Don’t Know About Elon Musk’s Children

With all his wealth, revolutionary ideas, and unending contributions to society, Elon Musk must definitely have an heir.

Fortunately, he has a handful of them. After 8 years of marriage, Musk and his first wife had five children: Kai, Xavier, Saxon, Griffin, and Damian.

Now, we are here to uncover 7 things most people don’t know about these five siblings.

  1. Elon Musk has five sons, but he actually fathered six. Nevada Alexander Musk, his first-born with ex-wife Justine Wilson, died when he was only 10 weeks old. He passed away after succumbing to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), a condition characterized by inexplicable death of children less than one year of age.
  2. Elon Musk’s five sons included one set of twins and one set of triplets born in 2004 and 2006, respectively. Quite possibly, this was a result of multiple embryos getting implanted when Musk and his first wife opted for in vitro fertilization. Some people claim that IVF increases the chance of getting pregnant with twins or more.
  3. Although they are already divorced and living separate lives, Elon and Justine share custody of their children. In fact, he revealed that the custody was evenly split between the two of them.
  4. One of Elon Musk’s sons is named Xavier, after Professor Charles Xavier, the telepathic and powerful leader of the X-Men. Unsurprisingly, the SpaceX founder is also quite the comics aficionado.
  5. All of Elon Musk’s children are enrolled in a secret school called “Ad Astra,” which means “to the stars” in Latin. In this peculiar academe, classes involve exploring robotics, dealing with artificial intelligence that may go rogue, and practically every unconventional topic that isn’t being discussed in other schools. Also, students of the school aren’t being graded on their work, making it quite enticing for many people who vied for the 12 spots for a class at Ad Astra.
  6. Elon Musk absolutely adores his sons. Although this must be a given for all dads in the world, it is quite interesting to see someone as busy as the Tesla co-founder to have enough time to spend with them. And Musk spends plenty of time with his children whom he affectionately referred to as the “loves of my life.”
  7. People thought that indie singer Claire “Grimes” Boucher is Elon Musk’s daughter. One photo of the “thrillionaire” posing with his son and Grimes became the talk of the town when she appeared like his daughter instead of his girlfriend. Some even noted how Musk looked like a single dad with his son and daughter, posing for a family picture. But, as mentioned earlier in this article, Musk only has five living children who are all male.
