Tesla Inc CEO Elon Musk and Shivon Zilis, a top executive at his brain-chip business Neuralink, are expecting twins in November 2021, according to Business Insider.
According to court documents, Musk and Zilis filed a petition in April to modify the twins’ names to “have their father’s last name” and have their mother’s last name as part of their middle name.
The petition was allowed by a Texas judge a month later, according to the newspaper.
According to a court docket description on the Westlaw legal research service, a judge signed a “Order Changing the Names of Multiple Children” on May 11 following the name change petition filed by Musk and Zilis on April 25 of this year.
The report stated, without naming a source, that Zillis has recently been mentioned as one of the people Musk could appoint to lead Twitter Inc following his $44 billion acquisition.
On her LinkedIn profile, Zilis, 36, is listed as the director of operations and special projects at Neuralink, a company co-founded and chaired by Musk, 51. She began working for the corporation in May 2017, the same month she was designated a project director in artificial intelligence at Tesla, where she remained until 2019.
According to her LinkedIn profile, she also serves as a board member at the artificial-intelligence research business OpenAI, which Musk co-founded.
Musk now has nine children. Musk has two children with Canadian artist Grimes and five children with his ex-wife, Canadian novelist Justine Wilson.
Musk and Grimes had their second kid via surrogate in December. According to a Page Six source from September last year, the billionaire stated that he and Grimes were “semi-separated.”
Musk and Zilis did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment.
