Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, and Shivon Zilis, head of operations and special projects at Neuralink, had twins in November 2021, according to Business Insider.
According to the redacted legal records provided by Insider, Musk, 51, and Zilis, 36, submitted the court filings to request that their children’s names be altered to incorporate Musk’s last name. The petition requested that their names include their father’s last name and have their mother’s last name as part of their middle name, which was approved earlier this year, according to Insider.
The twins were born just before Musk’s second kid with singer Grimes, who received a baby girl called Exa Dark Siderael Musk through surrogate in December. Musk, who has ten children and is the world’s richest individual, is worth more than $200 billion.
Musk, who posted a tweet claiming USA number of births has been below min reasonable levels for 50 years to the top of his more than 100 million-follower Twitter account on May 24.
Musk had 6 children with Justine Wilson, a Canadian writer who he married from 2000 until 2008. Wilson said in a Marie Claire story that their first kid died of Infant Death, or SIDS, when he was 10 weeks old. The couple then produced twins, then triplets.
Musk staged a live-streamed presentation in August 2020 to demonstrate the advancement of Neuralink’s technology, which it had placed in a pig. However, Neuralink has lately been forced to address questions about its testing techniques, disputing charges of animal cruelty while revealing earlier this year that monkeys died as a result of the research.
According to LinkedIn of Zilis, she has begun working for both Neuralink and Tesla in May 2017 and is now a director of operations at Neuralink.
Prior to joining firms of Musk, Zilis had worked for venture capital fund of a Bloomberg and IBM, and also serves as a member of two additional AI-related organizations.
