Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Inc, 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 include their mother’s last name as part of their middle name.

According to the story, the petition was allowed by a Texas judge a month later.

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 Musk and Zilis’s April 25 name change petition.

According to the story, which does not cite a source, Zillis has recently been mentioned as one of the persons Musk could hire to oversee Twitter Inc after his $44 billion takeover.

On her LinkedIn profile, Zilis, 36, is listed as the head of operations and special projects at Neuralink, which Musk, 51, co-founded and chairs. She joined the firm in May 2017, the same month she was designated project director of artificial intelligence at Tesla, where she remained until 2019.

According to her LinkedIn profile, she is also a board member at the artificial-intelligence research business OpenAI, which Musk co-founded.

The twins’ arrival raises Musk’s total number of offspring to nine. Musk has two children with Canadian artist Grimes and five more children with his ex-wife, Canadian novelist Justine Wilson.

Musk and Grimes had their second child through surrogacy in December. According to a September 2017 article by Page Six, the billionaire stated that he and Grimes were “semi-separated.”
