Elon Musk father confirms second child with his stepdaughter

Elon Musk father, Errol, confirms that he welcomed a secret second child with his stepdaughter in 2019. He had raised her since she was four years old before they commenced a romantic relationship.

Errol, who turned 76 already, says that he and his stepdaughter, Jana Bezuidenhout, 35, are not currently together, but they could still find their way to each other again. 

“It’s not practical. She’s 35. Eventually if I’m still around, she might wind up back with me,” he told the Sun. “Any man who marries a [younger] 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.”

Errol now has five biological kids, two with his stepdaughter Jana and three with his former wife, Maye Haldeman Musk. He had married Jana’s widowed mother, Heide Bezuidenhout, in 1979.

When asked about the relationship with Jana and likely, how the public would react to such news, he said: “The only thing we are on Earth for is to reproduce.” They had their first child in 2017.

The Elon Musk family tree grows ever complicated as he has now fathered ten kids of his own, doubling his father’s legacy. It appears that both father and son have the same ideology on populating the earth.

In a recent Tweet, the tech billionaire said: “Doing my best to help the underpopulation crisis. A collapsing birth rate is the biggest danger civilization faces by far.”

However, Errol confirmed that his three older children did not endorse his relationship with Jana. “They still don’t like it. They still feel a bit creepy about it, because she’s their sister. Their half-sister,” he added.
