From robotic cars to invading Mars, Elon Musk certainly knows how to turn heads on his own. But the SpaceX founder's recent appearance saw a rather unexpected visitor steal the show: His baby. Safe to say, "Bring Your Child to Work Day" has never looked cuter. Here's what went down...

While we'll have to wait until next year to watch the history-making spacecraft lift off, something tells us Baby X won't be tagging along for the ride. After all, "babies are just eating and pooping machines," as Musk put it. Stay tuned, whether X AE A-Xii finds his way to Mars or not, we're expecting big things from the little guy...
