Elon Musk ‘secretly’ welcomed twins with his company's top executive last year

Tesla owner Elon Musk now has nine known children after he secretly welcomed

twins with Shivon Zilis, a top executive at his neurotechnology firm Neuralink,

in November of 2021, according to court documents.

The shocking revelation was made by a Business Insider report as they obtained

court documents on Wednesday, in which the pair filed a petition to change their

twins' names in order to ‘have their father's last name and contain their mother's last name as part of their middle name.’

Musk, who is known as the world’s wealthiest man has five children with his first

wife, Justine Musk, and two with the singer Claire Boucher, known professionally as Grimes.

As per the reports, the twins were born a few weeks before Musk and Grimes had their second child via surrogacy.
