Elon Musk and Shivon Zilis

Tesla Inc Chief Executive Elon Musk and Shivon Zilis, a top executive at his brain-chip startup Neuralink, had twins in November of 2021, Business Insider reported on Wednesday.

In April, Musk and Zilis filed a petition to change the name of the twins to "have their father's last name" and contain their mother's last name as part of their middle name, the report said, citing court documents.

A month later, a Texas judge approved the petition, the report added.

The report said citing any source, that Zillis has recently been floated as one of the people Musk could tap to run Twitter Inc after his $44 billion deal acquisition.

Zilis, 36, is identified on her LinkedIn profile as director of operations and special projects at Neuralink, which is co-founded and chaired by Musk, 51.

The news of the twins' takes the total count of Musk's children to nine. Musk also shares two kids with Canadian singer Grimes, and another five with his ex-wife Canadian author Justine Wilson.

The “twins were born weeks before Musk and Claire Boucher, the musician who performs as Grimes, had their second child via surrogate in December,” the report adds.

Meanwhile, Zilis (or someone acting on her behalf) has removed any mention of Neuralink from a website about her background, and tekn down her LinkedIn oage as well.
