Elon Musk's father confirmed that he had a second child with his 35-year-old stepdaughter.
Errol Musk, 76, told The Sun that he and Jana Bezuidenhout welcomed a daughter last month, but claims the pregnancy was "unplanned" and the two do not live together. The two also share 5-year-old Elliot Rush, nicknamed Rushi.
"I haven't checked her DNA. But she looks just like my other daughters. She looks like Rose and Tosca mixed up," Errol said of the newborn. "She looks exactly like Rushi and she behaves like him. So it's pretty obvious you know."
The Tesla founder's father was married to Jana's mother for 18 years, and they had two children together. Errol also helped raise Jana.
"We were living together. She [Jana] stayed here for about 18 months after Rushi was born, but I realised she's two generations behind, whereas her mother was one generation behind when I married her," Errol the The Sun. "So any man who marries a woman, even if you feel very sprightly, it's going to be nice for a while. But there's a big gap… And that gap is going to show itself."
He added, "I married her mother when she was 25 and I was 45. She was probably one of the best looking woman I've ever seen in my life."
According to reports, Elon was livid when his father and Jana had a child, as the two grew up together as children.
"But the thing is it's not practical. She's 35 next birthday. So she's getting on. So eventually if I'm still around she might wind up back with me. It's difficult," Errol said. "I mean, I would much rather have them here. But Jana came and spent a few days here about six months ago. And the kids were starting to get on my nerves. Then I miss them as soon as they have gone."
Addressing the elephant in the room, Errol said his other daughters were "shocked" by his relationship with Jana because "to them it was their sister."
"And they still don't like it. They still feel a bit creepy about it, because she's their sister. Their half-sister," he said.
Elon, of course, is no stranger to bringing children into the world either. On July 6, Business Insider reported that the Tesla and SpaceX CEO quietly welcomed twins with one of his top execs, Shivon Zilis of Neurolink, in November 2021. The tech titan has 10 children.
