Just after Insider reported on Elon Musk having secret twins with one of his top executives this year, his father, Errol Musk, told The Sun he has fathered a second child with his step-daughter, 35 years old. Errol, 76, confirmed this in the interview, saying he had a daughter with his step-daughter, Jana Bezuidenhout in 2019, making her five years old.
Mark my words, they are sadly true

Since the news of this just came out five years later, many are comparing the father and son’s secret children, often noting “like father like son.” Bezuidenhout was five years old when Errol Musk married her mother, making a lot of people wonder how someone can wrap their mind around having intimate relationships with their step-daughter. Errol was married to her mother for 18 years and also have two children together.
This Errol Musk story is really tough to take in. He was 45 and the mother to his step daughter was 25 when they got together. He and the step daughter now have two children together. What a disturbing pattern and reasons why conversations about “grooming” are so important.

Errol says the child was “not planned” and lived together for a year and a half following the birth of his daughter. Though the two do not live together, he says that they have “affection” for each other. He also confirmed his daughters were “shocked” to find out about the relationship between him and his step-daughter, which is completely understandable and equally shocking to people online. Elon Musk has been in the news quite frequently recently after being sued by Twitter, being accused of flashing a flight attendant and confirming secret children with his executive.
Like father like son!????
Elon Musk's dad, 76, has confirmed a secret second child—with his stepdaughter back in 2019????
Errol Musk clearly shares his son’s disgusting desire to secretly procreate. Errol has 8 children, while Elon has 10 children—& that’s just the ones we know of. pic.twitter.com/6AtVwX1Scw

Errol confirms the relationship felt “creepy” to his daughters, especially since she is their half-sister. He also agreed with the points his son brought up when he confirmed his secret twins. On Twitter, Elon wrote “Doing my best to help the underpopulation crisis.” His father seemed to agree with these points, stating “The only thing we are on Earth for is to reproduce,” and noting he would have another child if he could, as he ” can’t see any reason not to.”
