Elon Musk had twins with one of the company’s leaders last year. Musk welcomed twins with Neuralink’s Shivon Zilis in 2021, bringing the number of children up to nine known children, according to court documents obtained by Insider.
In April, the Tesla boss and Zilis submitted a request to change the two children’s names to “have the father’s last name and include the mother’s last name as part of their middle name”, according to the outlet.
The two babies arrived just before he and Grimes had children via surrogate in December. The mother of the twins currently works as director of operations and special projects for Neuralink, where Musk is co-CEO.
The news of the richest man in life̵[ads1]7;s two children comes days after his 18-year-old child Vivian Jenna Wilson was granted a name and gender reassignment in California, removed “Musk” from her legal name and chose a first name that reflects her gender identity.
Wilson told the court she wanted the name change due to “the fact that I no longer live with or want to be related to my biological father [Musk] in any way, shape or form “, reports NBC.
Last month, the Tesla boss was accused of exposing his penis to a flight attendant for SpaceX, his space company, during a flight. The leader was paid $ 250,000 to settle the case in 2018.
In March, Grimes revealed that she had welcomed a second baby with Musk, named Exa Dark Sideræl. They call her “Y”, after her older brother nicknamed “X.”
Asked by Vanity Fair if the two were still «together», Grimes said at the time, «there is no real word for it… I will probably refer to him as my boyfriend, but we are very fluent. We live in separate houses. We are best friends. We see each other all the time … We only have our own things going on, and I do not expect other people to understand that. “
Grimes added that they planned to have more children as well. “We always wanted at least three or four,” she said.
She later sent out a series of tweets that the two had broken up, but that Musk was still “the love of life”.
According to Insider, Musk and Amber Heard, who briefly dated in 2016, may also have frozen embryos together. During the Depp-Heard trial, the boss testified to Heard’s sister that she heard from Heard’s mother that the actress was “in a legal battle with him over the rights to embryos they had created together.” She added: “He wanted to destroy them, and Amber tried to hold them to have a baby.”
Maybe Musk’s next mission is not on his way to space, but to shoot babies out to change the fertility rate in the US on his own: After all, he has a chart of the country’s declining birth rate attached to his Twitter profile. ““The US birth rate has been below the minimum sustainable levels for ~ 50 years,” it says chirping.
