Elon Musk, known for his warnings about a global depopulation crisis, has reportedly had another child with Shivon Zilis, a director at his company Neuralink, as per Bloomberg. 

This addition increases Musk's family to 12 children, including twins with Zilis, three with musician Grimes, and six from previous relationships.

On Thursday, Musk reposted a chart highlighting Europe's "fertility crisis," commenting that "civilization may end with a bang or with a whimper (in adult diapers)." 

Bloomberg pointed out that Musk has made similar statements before, such as during a 2022 interview with Tucker Carlson and at the Milken Institute conference in May, where he said, "a collapsing birth rate is the biggest danger civilization faces, by far." 

In 2021, Musk’s nonprofit donated $10 million to the University of Austin to support the Population Wellbeing Initiative, a research group focused on studying human population trends.

These developments follow multiple allegations of inappropriate behaviour by Musk at work. The Wall Street Journal reported Musk had a sexual relationship with a former SpaceX intern who later became an executive. 

Additionally, another employee claimed she turned down Musk's repeated requests to have children with him.
