Another member of the Musk family has spoken out about secretly having a kid after it was revealed that Elon Musk and a worker welcomed twins last year. Errol Musk, Elon's father, acknowledged having a secret second kid with his stepdaughter Jana Bezuidenhout. The 76-year-old revealed in a statement to The Sun that he had a girl in 2019.
Elliot Rush, who was born in 2017, is a 5-year-old kid that the two already have as a child. Errol told The Sun that he had grown his family and that "reproduction is the sole reason we are here on Earth." Musk Sr. also disclosed that her pregnancy was unintended and that, due to their 43-year age difference, they no longer live together.
He said of their age difference, "Any male who marries a [younger] lady, even if they feel very sprightly, it's going to be lovely for a time, but there's a huge gap... and that gap is going to manifest itself," to The Sun. Elon's father also discussed how his children have responded to his welcoming children with their step-sister, describing it as "creepy." Elon and his father reportedly had a major falling out after the birth of their first child together, Jana, in 2017.
Elon has five children who are still living with his ex-wife Talulah Riley, as well as a son and a daughter with music artist Grimes. Along with Shivon Zilis, a senior executive at his artificial intelligence startup, he just welcomed twins.
