Elon Musk Admits To Fathering Twins, Says He’s Controlling “Underpopulation”
Musk has five children with his first partner and two with singer, Grimes
The never-ending tale of Elon Musk and his shenanigans continues to haunt us. After the long-drawn-out will they-won’t they drama over the Twitter acquisition, the billionaire has been trending again. This time, for an even more absurd reason.
Commenting on the recent news of him fathering twins last year, Musk said, “Doing My Best To Control Underpopulation Crisis.” It was reported that Elon Musk and Shivon Zills, a top executive at Neuralink, welcomed a pair of twins in November 2021.
As per a Business Insider report, Musk and Zills filed a petition back in April, to change the name of their twins to have their father’s last name and contain their mother’s last name as their middle name.
This takes Musk’s total count of children to nine. The billionaire already has five children with Canadian author Justine Wilson, namely, Griffin, Vivian, Kai, Saxon and Damian. Additionally, he also has two kids with singer Grimes. Their names are, X AE A-XI and Exa Dark Sideræl. The names of the twins is yet to be revealed.
The good news is that Musk has the funds to provide for all of them, being Forbes’s richest person in the world right now with a net worth of $233.7 billion. Over the course of his career, Musk has been a major part of six companies — Tesla, SpaceX, Boring, Nuerallink and more.
The 51-year-old billionaire was recently caught in a never-ending loop of the news cycle with his attempts to buy Twitter. Speaking of which, the $44-billion deal appears to be in jeopardy right now over Musk’s claims on data from fake accounts. Is that just a not-so-cunning way to get out of the deal? We’ll find out soon. Meanwhile, here’s how Twitter has reacted to the news of Musk’s latest news.
