Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who is known for his success in the technology industry, has announced the birth of his 12th child, his third with Shivon Zilis, who is also the Director of Neuralink. He mentioned that his loved ones, including close friends and relatives, had no doubts about the birth of the baby. Additionally, he has refuted claims that he was involved in a “secret affair” that led to the birth of the child.

Musk said it was “bizarre” not to issue a press release about his 12th child. The baby’s name and gender are unknown.

“The phrase ‘secretly fathered’ is likewise untrue. Our entire family and circle of friends are aware. Failure to publish a press release, which would be strange, does not imply ‘secret,'” he was reported as saying by Page Six of India Today.

Elon Musk Concerns about Declining Birth Rates and Advocacy for Large Families

The 52-year-old entrepreneur has expressed sorrow over a drop in birth rates, noting out that several countries were far below replacement levels. Global trend indicated a further decline.

“Many countries are already at or below the replacement rate, and the trend suggests that almost all will be. “This is simply a fact, not a ‘debunked theory,'” he told Page Six.

He advised that “2.1 kids is the replacement rate, and obviously the world as a whole will soon drop below that point”.

Musk supported having “big families” in a July 2022 interview with Page Six, saying he wanted many children so he could spend time with them and be a good father.

Musk had already stated at the time that a “collapsing birth rate was the biggest danger civilisation faced”.
