Elon Musk lives in a Westlake mansion at least part-time with his baby mama and new twins, a new report suggests.

Documents acquired by Insider show Musk and Shivon Alice Zilis, the mother of his twins and one of his top Neuralink executives, listing the same Austin residence for their address when petitioning to add Musk's last name to his kids' legal names.

Austonia finds one local home listed under the mother's name, Shivon Alice Zilis, matching the price tag Insider said the house was worth: $4.5 million. According to the Travis County Appraisal District, Zilis got the deed for the home in August 2021, 4 months before giving birth to Musk's twins.

The home, located in Westlake, was built in 1999 and sits on a little over an acre of land in a gated community. The 4,579 square foot home has six bedrooms, five baths and a pool.

Where Musk lives has been highly contested in the past. In July 2021, Musk claimed his primary residence was a 20-feet-by-20-feet box in Boca Chica, Texas, that he rents from SpaceX. Then in December 2021, the month Musk's then-girlfriend, Grimes, had a child with Musk via surrogacy, the Wall Street Journal reported he lived in a $17.9 million Lake Austin home owned by PayPal co-founder Ken Howery. Musk denied he lived in that home, but said he had stayed there previously.

Musk has not commented on his residency since, but the Twitter account that tracks his jet movement shows he's in Austin days at a time on a near-weekly basis.


Migration to Austin brought wealthy out-of-towners and high home prices. It's now starting to cool down.

Austin is one of the top metro areas where homebuyer income saw the greatest surge during the pandemic and it came at a cost to locals.
