Elon Musk is fighting population decline and has three children in 2021

Elon Musk, the richest person on the planet, has a lot to do. It seems one of those things is to make sure he does what he can to beat what he calls the impending demographic crisis.

The Tesla CEO reportedly had twins with Neuralink executive Shivon Zilis in November last year, just weeks before Musk’s second child was born with musician Claire Boucher, aka Grimes, via surrogate in december.

According to court documents, Musk and Zilis filed a motion in a Travis County, Texas, court in April to change the twins’ names. The two wanted the children to “carry their father’s surname and contain their mother’s surname in their middle name.” The request was approved by a judge in May.

Zilis, 36, is an integral part of Musk’s businesses. According to Insider, she was a project manager at Tesla in 2017, lending her AI expertise to autopilot and chip design teams. She also became the youngest board member of the nonprofit OpenAI, and she is currently the Director of Operations and Special Projects for Neuralink, the neurotechnology company. It has also been suggested that she would be one of the people Musk plans to help run Twitter after its acquisition.

Prior to joining Musk’s network, she led data and machine learning investment efforts at startup venture capital fund Bloomberg Beta. She was included in the venture capital category of Forbes 30 Under 30 in 2015 in the venture capital category.

Zilis is also a lifelong athlete, serving as a goaltender on Yale’s women’s ice hockey team where she earned her bachelor’s degree in economics and philosophy in 2008.

It is unclear if the two are a couple or if this was just part of his attempt to stem the population decline. (Or for create a group of humans to populate Mars?)

Court documents say Zilis and Musk listed the same address, a home in a gated community in Texas that Zilis bought and moved into a few months before the twins were born.
