Elon Musk rarely holds back when it comes to talking about his vital interests, from business to politics and the world of cryptocurrency.

According to new reports, the CEO of Tesla had twin twins in silence with Neuralink executive Shivon Zilis in November 2021, just before the birth of his daughter with Grimes the following month.

Zilis is the director of operations and special projects of the neurotechnology company that aims to implant the brains of patients with machine technology. Musk is currently co-CEO of the company.
In court documents obtained by Insider, Zills gave birth in November last year, and filed a petition to change the names of the two children so that legally the two children would take Musk as their last name while using Zills’ name as part of their middle names.
The petition was filed on April 25 (the same day Musk submitted his bid for the $ 44 billion Twitter acquisition) and then approved in May 2022, making the twins the 9th. and 10th children of the Musk clan.
Musk is also the father of Nevada Musk (who tragically died in 2002 of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), the twins Griffin and Vivian Musk (18), the twins Kai, Saxon and Damian Musk (16). ), X AE A- XII Musk (2 years) and Exa Dark Sideræl Musk (7 months).
Earlier this year, Grimes revealed in an interview with Vanity Fair that she and Musk had welcomed Exa through a surrogate in December 2021, although she had not planned to reveal the information.
“I didn’t mean for the two of them to discover my daughter, so please respect her privacy, as I would love for her to be able to live as private a life as possible,” she said. he tweeted after the publication of the interview.
The news of Musk’s twins with Zilis prompted Musk to start talking about fertility rates and family growth.
“Doing our best to help the underpopulation crisis,” he said he joked to his followers. “A collapsing birth rate is the greatest danger facing civilization by far.”
The billionaire too pointed out that the population of Mars is in fact still zero before ending with a sweet note.
“I hope you have large families and congratulations to those who already have them,” he said excitedly written.
Musk’s net worth as of Thursday afternoon was about $ 231.5 billion.
