Elon Musk’s dad Errol has revealed he has a second child with his 35-year-old stepdaughter.
The baby girl is the second child Errol, 76, has had with Jana Bezuidenhout, 35, who also gave birth to son Elliot Rush in 2017.
He told The Sun in a new interview: “I haven’t checked her DNA. But she looks just like my other daughters. She looks like Rose and Tosca mixed up. She looks exactly like Rushi and she behaves like him. So it’s pretty obvious you know.”
There is still a reported rift between father and son from after the first baby’s birth. The Standard has approached Elon Musk for further comment.
Errol Musk said he lived with Ms Bezuidenhout for a period but they have now separated and he admitted her sisters were uncomfortable with the two of them having children.
“And they still don’t like it,” Errol Musk said. “They still feel a bit creepy about it, because she’s their sister. Their half-sister.”
Ms Bezuidenhout was four when her mother Heide married Errol in the early nineties.
Heide entered the marriage with three children from a previous relationship and went on to have two more children with Errol during their 18-year marriage.
Elon was born in 1971 to Errol’s first wife Maye.
South African native Errol now has seven children.
He told The Sun: “The only thing we are on Earth for is to reproduce. If I could have another child I would. I can’t see any reason not to. If I had thought about it then Elon or Kimbal [Elon Musk’s younger brother] wouldn’t exist.”
In a 2018 interview with Rapport, Errol admitted Ms Bezuidenhout had given birth to a baby the two conceived “in the heat of the moment”.
He said she stayed at his home after her boyfriend threw her out.
“You have to understand – I’ve been single for 20 years and I’m just a man who makes mistakes,” he said.
“They think I’m getting senile and should go into an old age home, not have a life full of fun and a tiny baby,” he added, of the family’s reaction to the news.”
