Tesla CEO Elon Musk gave birth to twins last year with an executive at his neuroscience tech company Neuralink, Business Insider reported on the 6th (local time).
According to Business Insider, Musk gave birth to twins in November last year from Neuralink’s top executive, Seavon Gillis. The incident was reported after Business Insider obtained court documents petitioning that children adopt Musk’s surname and include part of their mother’s surname in their middle names. The petition was filed in Travis County, Texas, United States.
The twins were born in Austin, Texas and live in Travis County. The twins were born weeks before Musk gave birth to her daughter via her surrogate from her relationship with her ex-girlfriend, Lime Su.
Seavon Gillis, who gave birth to twins, graduated from Yale University and is considered a world-class researcher in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) machine learning. She was also named one of Forbes’ 2020 Top 8 Female Leaders in AI. Born in Canada, Gillies was Project Director at Tesla from May 2017 to August 2019, where she worked as a project director for Neural Links after working in venture capital firm Bloomberg Beta. He is the youngest member of the board of directors of OpenAI, an artificial intelligence lab co-founded by Musk.
In early 2020, during the height of the coronavirus lockdown, when Musk strongly opposed the California state government’s request to shut down Tesla’s factories, Gillies defended him on Twitter, saying, “There is no one I admire and admire more than Musk.” .
Musk, who already had seven children, became a father of nine children. Her first wife, from her relationship with writer Justin Wilson, gave her six children, her first child, who died of sudden infantile lower syndrome in 2002 at just 10 weeks of age. His later son, Zabeer Musk, recently changed his gender from male to female, and applied to change her name to ‘Vivian Jenna Wilson’ after her mother’s surname. At the same time, she declared a severance from Musk’s CEO, saying, “I don’t want anything to do with her father.” After that, Musk and Canadian singer Grimes dated for three years and had two children, but the two broke up in September 2021, three months before their second child was born.
Musk, who rarely publishes photos of his children, tweeted last week a picture of Pope Francis and his four sons meeting. On the 19th of last month, she posted a tweet saying “I love all my children” on Father’s Day.
Meanwhile, CEO Musk and Gillis did not respond to requests from the media including Forbes to express their views on the twin births.
