In 2021, Elon Musk had twins with a Neuralink executive: Report

A top employee at his artificial intelligence business is alleged to have fathered two children with Tesla CEO Elon Musk, according to court records.


Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, is said to have given birth to twins in November 2021 with a senior member of his Nueralink artificial intelligence company. According to the latest court records, Musk and his employee Shivon Zilis welcomed two infants last year, around the time that the Tesla CEO and his then-girlfriend Grimes, with whom he had two children, were preparing to separate. With this, Musk adds ten known children to his family tree. This number includes six from Justine Musk, his first wife. One of the six died at the age of 10 months from a disease. Following this, he had two kids with Claire Boucher, also known as Grimes.

With the intention of giving the twins “their father’s last name,” Musk and Zilis submitted a petition to have the twins’ names changed in April of this year. Their middle name would be their mother’s last name. A Texas judge eventually granted the motion after a month. An “Order Changing the Names Of Multiple Children” was signed by the judge on May 11, according to a court docket summary on the Westlaw legal research service.

According to the reports, the children were born in Texas, where a petition to alter their names was also submitted. Zillis has lately been mentioned as one of the candidates Musk could choose to lead Twitter Inc. after his $44 billion takeover agreement, according to a business insider report. She is listed as the company’s director of operations and special projects on LinkedIn. Musk, 51, co-founded and serves as the company’s chairman. She commenced employment there in May 2017. She also sits on the board of the OpenAI research company for artificial intelligence, which Musk helped build.


Musk had previously stated his desire to have additional children. When he declared, “If people don’t have more children, civilization is going to crumble. Mark my words” he caused quite a stir on the internet. You have my word. Musk had responded that he is setting an example when asked why he has so many children. He added that he lives out what he preaches.
