ELON Musk has reportedly welcomed twins with a top executive to Neuralink, one of his many companies – bringing his total to nine known children.
The world’s richest man, 51, met tech guru Shivon Zilis, 36, through her work with OpenAI, the nonprofit Musk co-founded in 2015.
Court documents obtained by Insider show that Musk and Zilis welcomed the twins last November.
The two filed an application to change the twins’ names on April 25.
Musk and Zilis want to “have their father’s last name and include their mother’s last name as part of their middle name,” court documents said.
A Texas judge granted the order in May, Insider reports.
Zilis, 36, is the youngest person on OpenAI’s board of directors.
Born in Canada, he joined Tesla in 2017 before moving to Neuralink.
She currently serves as Neuralink’s Director of Operations and Special Projects.
It is rumored that Zilis could be picked by Musk to help run Twitter if his deal to buy the company goes through.
Musk now has nine children, including two sets of twins and one set of triplets.
He has five children from his relationship with Justine Wilson, which ended in divorce in 2008.
Sadly, Musk’s first child with Wilson, Nevada Alexander Musk, died of sudden infant death syndrome 10 weeks after his birth in 2002.
Musk shares two children with his former partner Claire Boucher, aka singer Grimes.
He has previously expressed his desire to have more children to sustain civilization.
He said: “There aren’t enough people, I can’t stress that enough. There aren’t enough people.
“If people stop having children, civilization will collapse. Mark my words.”
In 2021, in response to a tweet praising his large family, Musk wrote, “I’m trying to lead by example!”
“Population collapse is a much bigger problem than people realize, and that’s just for Earth. Mars is in great need of humans as the population is currently zero.”
