In recent news, it has been revealed that Tesla CEO Elon Musk fathered two children (twins) with his Neuralink company exec., Shivon Zilis, back in November 2021, just several weeks before his then partner, singer Grimes, gave birth to their son. This puts 51 year old Musk at 9 children that we know about. It is rumored that Musk and actress Amber Heard were in a legal dispute over the destruction of embryo’s they created together sometime during their roughly 2-year relationship (2016-2018). Amber Heard allegedly won that legal battle and now has a daughter who was birthed via surrogate but she has not publicly stated who the father is. Musk has publicly expressed his desire to have more children. What makes this all so very interesting, are the Twitter statements he keeps making about population collapse.
It seems as though Elon Musk very much wants to do his part to make sure we have enough people to toil away on Earth as well as on Mars. It also seems that Elon’s father, Errol Musk, is in the battle to (re)populate as well! It was recently confirmed that Errol, age 76, has also recently fathered a 2nd child with his 35 year old step-daughter, yes, step-daughter, Elon’s step-sister. This puts Errol Musk at seven children, his second youngest child, a boy, age 5. Musk senior shares the same sentiments that Elon does in terms of population growth, telling the Sun tabloid, “The only thing we are on Earth for is to reproduce,” he said. “If I could have another child I would. I can’t see any reason not to.” As far as I have discovered, Elon Musk has had population collapse on the brain as far back as 2016.
The Musk Family Tree seems to have really started branching out with Errol, the family tree extends narrowly up with each Musk ancestor having only one or two children. Why Elon and Errol have such a strong desire to (re)populate the earth, maybe they’ve done the math and have legitimate concerns? Maybe its just ego, we can only speculate. I personally think Musk want’s to get a monopoly on Mars and is preparing his army, I mean first settlers.
Actual studies are now being conducted, thanks to Elon and his rockets, to determine whether freeze dried sperm can survive in space. There is concern over space radiation and whether that may cause mutations in offspring born outside of Earth. Elon Musk is most certainly on a mission to Mars and I don’t doubt that his emissions will also be making the trip.
