Elon Musk quietly welcomed twins with Shivon Zilis, one of his top executives, in November 2021, Business Insider reports.

According to the outlet, who claim to have reviewed court documents, Musk and Zilis filed a petition to change the twins' names in order to "have their father’s last name and contain their mother's last name as part of their middle name." The appeal was reportedly approved by an Austin, Texas judge in May 2022, per Insider, who withheld the kids’ names to protect their privacy.

The twins were allegedly born weeks before the Tesla CEO fathered his second child with Grimes, his now-ex.

Following the proliferation of Insider's report, Musk, who occasionally produces electronic music and has long championed rave culture, took to Twitter, where he appeared to confirm the news. "Doing my best to help the underpopulation crisis," he wrote.
