Elon Musk secretly fathered twins with a top executive at his company just weeks before welcoming a child with an on-off partner

Elon Musk has secretly fathered twins with Shivon Zilis – an executive at his neurotechnology company Neuralink – it was reported on Wednesday, July 6.

According to court documents obtained by Business Insider, the children were born in November 2021, just weeks before the Tesla CEO welcomed his second child as a surrogate with his on-going partner Grimes.

Elon Musk, 51, is now the father of nine children. The billionaire shares five children with his ex-wife Justine Wilson – a pair of 18-year-old twins and a pair of 16-year-old triplets. Musk also has two children with Canadian musician Grimes (real name Claire Boucher) — son X AE A-XII and daughter Exa Dark Sideræl — and two children with Zilis.

Ever since reports emerged that Musk had fathered two more children, a Twitter thread by the SpaceX founder discussing declining birth rates in the US has drawn renewed attention.

On May 24, Musk tweeted a Wall Street Journal graph showing that the total fertility rate in the US has remained below “replacement” levels for the past 50 years.

“The birth rate in the US has been below minimum for about 50 years,” he tweeted before pinning the tweet to his profile.

“Contrary to what many think, the richer someone is, the fewer children they have,” he added. “I’m a rare exception. Most people I know have zero or one child.”

Three weeks later, Musk posted another tweet on the thread, this time referring to his own contribution to the country’s population. “The past two years have been a demographic disaster,” he said. “I mean, I do my part, haha”.

In another tweet, he added: “Civilization sterilizes.”

Following reports that he’d fathered twins with 36-year-old Zilis, Musk addressed the news in a series of tweets, echoing a similar sentiment about falling birth rates from his previous thread.

“I am doing my best to help the underpopulation crisis. A collapsing birth rate is by far the greatest danger facing civilization,” he said. “I hope you have big families and congratulations to those who already do!”

Musk’s previous Twitter thread has received hundreds of new replies since it was reported he fathered twins with 36-year-old Zilis.

“Timely tweet,” said author Kirsten Korosec.

“Man. He wasn’t kidding…” tweeted another user.

“This tweet now has a new perspective,” said one person.

“The only thing this man is true to his word on,” wrote another Twitter user.

Court documents show that Musk and Zilis filed a petition in April to change the twins’ name to “their father’s last name” and include part of their mother’s last name. A Texas court approved the request in May. The documents also show that the couple listed the same home address in Austin, Texas, where Tesla is based.

Zilis, a Yale-educated artificial intelligence specialist, is currently director of operations and special projects at Neuralink, a Musk-led company that develops computer implants that allow people’s brains to control electronic devices.
