According to a story, Elon Musk had twins with one of his senior colleagues last year.
With the revelation of the twins, entrepreneur Elon Musk now has nine kids in total.
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Inc., and Shivon Zilis, a senior executive at his brain-chip business Neuralink, welcomed twins in November of 2021, according to a report published on Wednesday by Business Insider.
According to the report, which was based on court records, Musk and Zilis petitioned to have the twins’ names changed in April so that they would “have their father’s last name” and have a portion of their mother’s last name in their middle name.
The petition was allowed by a Texas judge one month later, the newspaper said.
According to a court docket summary on the Westlaw legal research service, a judge approved Musk and Zilis’ request for a name change on April 25 by signing an “Order Changing the Names of Multiple Children” on May 11.
Without specifying a source, the story said that Zilli had lately been mentioned as a potential candidate for Musk to hire to lead Twitter Inc. following his $44 billion acquisition.
The director of operations and special projects at Neuralink, which Musk, 51, co-founded and chairs, is listed as Zilis on her LinkedIn profile. In May 2017, the same month she was appointed project director for artificial intelligence at Tesla, where she stayed until 2019, she began her employment with the business.
According to her LinkedIn profile, she is also a board member at OpenAI, an artificial intelligence research company that Musk co-founded.
Musk now has nine children in total as a result of the news of the twins’ birth. In addition to the five children he has with his ex-wife, Canadian novelist Justine Wilson, Musk also has two children with Canadian artist Grimes.
In December, Musk and Grimes welcomed their second child through surrogacy. According to a Page Six piece from September of last year, the millionaire said that he and Grimes were “semi-separate.”
Reuters asked Musk and Zilis for remarks, but none of them responded right away.
