Elon Musk Welcomes Third Child with Neuralink Executive, Marking His 12th Overall

Elon Musk and Shivon Zilis, a top executive at Neuralink, welcomed a new baby earlier this year. Although the public recently learned about their child through media reports, Musk clarified to Page Six that this information was never kept secret.

Musk commented, “All our friends and family know. Not issuing a press release, which would be bizarre, does not mean it’s a secret.”

Baby, whose name and gender have not been disclosed till now, is Elon Musk’s 12th child and his third with Zilis, who is associated with his brain-implant company, Neuralink.

The birth was initially reported in a Bloomberg article titled, “Elon Wants You to Have More Babies,” highlighting Musk’s concerns about declining birth rates.

Neither Zilis nor Musk commented for the Bloomberg story about the newborn.

Previously, Musk and Zilis welcomed twins, Strider and Azure, in November 2021. These twins were born a month before Musk and alt-pop singer Grimes had their daughter, Exa Dark Sideræl, via surrogacy.

In September 2023, Grimes, who shares three children with Musk, posted on X requesting privacy for their children amidst headlines about her co-parenting situation with Musk and the news of their third child, a son named Techno, born shortly after Musk’s children with Zilis.

Grimes mentioned having a long-overdue conversation with Zilis, emphasizing that the situation was not Zilis’ fault. She expressed mutual respect and excitement for their children to grow up together.

In July 2022, Musk showed his support for large families, stating, “Bravo to big families,” and shared his desire to have many children while still being a good father. Musk expressed his concerns about declining birth rates, tweeting, “A collapsing birth rate is the biggest danger civilization faces, by far.”

Musk reiterated these concerns, noting that many countries are already below the “replacement rate” and that this trend is expected to continue. He highlighted the importance of maintaining population levels, mentioning that 2.1 children per woman is the replacement rate, and warned that the global average is expected to drop below this threshold soon.
