What do all 3 of Elon Musk’s baby mamas have in common? Meet Shivon Zilis, the Neuralink tech whizz who shares twins with the Tesla CEO, recent girlfriend Grimes and author Justine Wilson
Musk has also dated Aquaman star and Johnny Depp’s ex Amber Heard, actress Talulah Riley and, currently, Elvis’ Natasha Bassett, although he doesn’t have kids with them (yet?).
So, the richest man in the world currently has kids from three different partners – but not all of them want anything to do with him. But who exactly are his baby mamas and how does their current wealth compare?
Oh, and they have one thing in common, besides sharing kids with Musk: they are all Canadian.
1. Shivon Zilis, 36
Children: twins with Musk
Net worth: US$5 million – US$10 million
The SpaceX boss co-founded Neuralink, which shares an office with OpenAI. But details about the pair’s personal relationship are not known. The world found out the couple had twins together after legal documents to change the children’s surname to that of Musk were leaked.
According to HITC, Zilis has had an impressive career in machine learning and was on the Forbes’ 30 under 30 list in 2015 as the founding member of Bloomberg Beta. She was reportedly based in San Francisco before moving to Austin about three months before the twins were born. The Tesla and SpaceX headquarters are also in Austin, Texas.
2. Grimes, 34
Children: two with Musk, one born via surrogate
Net worth: US$10 million
She was born Claire Elise Boucher but changed her name to Grimes after listing “grimes music” under her musical interest on MySpace. That’s according to a report published in Cosmopolitan, which also claimed she has a double major in psychology and philosophy from the University of McGill.
The baby girl was named Exa Dark Sideræl Musk and was born via surrogate. She told Vanity Fair that having children was an “artistic rebirth” for her. According to Slate, the couple met after Musk slid into Grimes’ DMs when he read an AI joke she made.
In March, Grimes confirmed she and Musk were no longer a couple, but insisted that they remain best friends.
Through her own musical efforts, she has reportedly worked hard to have an estimated net worth of around US$10 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
3. Justine Wilson, 49
Children: five with Musk
Net worth: US$3 million
