Elon Musk has welcomed his third child with Neuralink Director Shivon Zilis earlier this year. This child, whose name and gender remain unknown is Musk's 12th child overall. With the news of this 12th child under wraps, Musk told Page Six that his latest bundle of joy was "far from a secret".

Speaking to Page Six, Musk added that issuing a press release to announce the birth of his child would have been just "bizarre".

"As for ‘secretly fathered,’ that is also false. All our friends and family know. Failure to issue a press release, which would be bizarre, does not mean ‘secret'," Musk added.

Musk's 12th child was revealed during a Bloomberg report titled - "Elon Wants You To Have More Babies", which focused on Musk's obsession with birth rates.

While Musk and Zilis did not comment on the Bloomberg story, the couple confirmed the birth of their child to Page Six.

Speaking on birth rates, the tycoon also told Page Six - “Many countries are already well below replacement rate, and the trend is that almost all will be. This is simply a fact, not a ‘debunked theory.'”

The Tesla CEO welcomed twins Strider and Azure with Zilis in November 2021. The twins were born just one month before he and alt-pop singer Grimes welcomed Exa Dark Sideræl (Y) via surrogate.
