During an interview the tech CEO’s dad admitted to having fathered a child with his glamorous stepdaughter Jana.
The relationship between Errol Musk (76) and his stepdaughter Jana Bezuidenhout (34) first surfaced in 2018. They had a child named Elliot Rush, who is now five years old.

Errol said in the interview that: “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 wouldn’t exist”.

Errol Musk married Heidi (Jana’s mother, a widow with three kids) when Jana was simply 4 years. He married Heidi after splitting with Elon Musk’s mother Maye Haldeman Musk. Heide already has three children (Jana, Jock Jr., and Harry) from her former relationship. Raised in South Africa, Jana lived along with her mom, stepfather and half-siblings. Her biological father reportedly passed away in an automobile crash again in 1992. After married for 18 years and having two children together named Asha and Alexandra, Errol and Heide split up. Jana is in her early twenties by then.
Errol Musk(76 years old as of 2022) was born in 1946, in Pretoria, Transvaal, South Africa. His first marriage was to Maye Musk (1970-1979) and he has three children with her named Elon, Kimbal, and Tosca. So, speaking about Errol Musk, he’s a father of seven children (including the two with her step-daughter).
Talking about their purported second child Errol said: “She wasn’t planned. But I mean, Jana stayed here for about 18 months after Rushi was born. I haven’t checked her DNA. But she looks just like my other daughters: Rose and Tosca mixed up. She also behaves like Rushi (the first child), so it’s pretty obvious making it clear with whom he had the child. Jana is two generations behind whereas her mother was one generation behind, when I married her. I married her mother when she was 25 and I was 45. She was probably one of the best looking woman I’ve ever seen in my life.”
He added: “Though, we no longer lives together, we have a lot of affection for each other. But the thing is it’s not practical. 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. She’s 35 next birthday. So she’s getting on. So eventually if I’m still around she might wind up back with me. It’s difficult.” He said “Jana came and spent a few days here about six months ago. And the kids were starting to get on my nerves. Then I miss them as soon as they have gone.“
The older Musk stated that there are other women claiming that he has also fathered their children. “I have about six people, women who claim that their child is my child right now. Obviously, they are opportunists,” he stated. “[But] there was a period in Johannesburg in the ’80s that I was going out with a different woman every night. I had plenty of dates. So it’s quite conceivable that one of them could actually come back and say, ‘This is your child.’”
Errol also admitted that Jana’s first pregnancy had stunned Musk family and led a rift between him and his son(Elon Musk). The other daughters were shell-shocked by the discovery, as it was their sister. “And they still don’t like it. They still feel a bit creepy about it, because she’s their sister. Their half-sister,” he added.
