Claims on Elon Musk having twins with the top executive of one his companies, Neuralink, have taken the internet by storm. As per court documents retrieved by certain media houses, the twins have been given their mother’s last name ‘Zilis’ as middle name and their dad’s name as their last name. Elon is father of total Nine Children.
Elon Musk and Shivon Zilis had welcomed their twins in November 2021.
36 year old Canada born Zilis is currently a top executive at Neuralink which creates interfaces that can be implanted in the brain. Neuralink was founded by Musk in 2016.
Zilis has also worked as a Project-Director at Tesla.
Apart from this, Zilis has also featured in the Forbes’ 30 under 30 list and has also been placed in LinkedIn’s 35 under 35 list.
Reportedly, Shivon Zilis and Elon Musk met in San Francisco when she was offered a job in OpenAI.
In 2020, she had defended Musk’s decision to move Tesla out of California via a tweet. The decision was being taken in view of the COVID restrictions imposed.
It is being speculated that Zilis might lead Twitter if the bid goes through. The Twitter bid has been on a standby since April 2022 after the board at Twitter confirmed the 44 dollar billion takeover by Elon Musk.
Musk and Zilis had welcomed their twins just weeks before he had welcomed his second child, named Exa Dark Siderael, with ex-girlfriend Grimes, via surrogacy. They also have a son together X Æ A-Xii.
For those who are not aware, Elon Musk has four other kids as well: Griffin, Vivian Jenna, Kai, Saxon and Damian with ex-wife Justine Wilson. Their child, Nevada Alexander had passed away due to SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) when he was only 10 weeks old.
