Shivon Zilis is one of the top executives at Musk’s neurotechnology company, Neurolink. The 36-year-old started working at Neurolink in May 2017. Zilis also worked for Tesla until 2019 as a project director in artificial intelligence. On top of this, she is a member of the board at OpenAI which is another company co-founded by Musk.
After reportedly having the twins in November 2021, Musk and Zilis filed to have the children’s last names changed to “have their father’s last name” in April. This was later approved by the judge.
Musk and singer, Grimes, welcomed their second child in December 2021, just a month after the twins. Musk described his relationship with Grimes at the time as them being “semi-separated”.
