Her name is Talulah Riley, and she played one of the sisters in 2005's is a really good movie, and b) My life with this man had devolved to a cliché. I said yes, but then blew him off with a note on my dorm-room door. A fellow student a year ahead of me, he was a clean-cut, upper-class boy with a South African accent who appeared in front of me one afternoon as I was leaping up the steps to my dorm.In the late spring of 2008, my wealthy entrepreneurial husband, Elon Musk, the father of my five young sons, filed for divorce. I was an aspiring writer in my first year at Queen's University in Ontario, Canada, sprung from a small hometown and recovering from a difficult case of first love with the older man I'd left behind. He said we'd met at a party I knew I hadn't been to.Six weeks later, he texted me to say he was engaged to a gorgeous British actress in her early 20s who had moved to Los Angeles to be with him. (Years later, he would confess that he had noticed me from across the common room and decided he wanted to meet me.) He invited me out for ice cream.
Previous boyfriends complained that I was "competitive," but Elon said I had "a fire in my soul." When he told me, "I see myself in you," I knew what he meant.
He bought and renovated an 1,800-square-foot condo: We now had a place of our own.
He also bought a million-dollar sports car — a Mc Laren F1 — and a small plane.
"I just assume that there will be nannies." He made a rocking motion with his arms and said, happily, "Baby." Then he took me to a bookstore and handed me his credit card. When I looked at him, he said quickly, "It's not a prenup."Although I'd been dating a struggling 20-something entrepreneur, I was now engaged to a wealthy one.
Elon had sold Zip2, which partnered with newspapers to help them get online, in 1999, the year before, and was worth about million overnight.
