Who are Elizabeth Holmes's kids?

In January 2022, Elizabeth was found guilty on four charges of fraud following a widely publicized three-month trial.

The former Silicon Valley darling was convicted of defrauding investors with her blood-testing startup Theranos, which had promised that its technology could use only a few drops of blood to run a wide range of tests at a fraction of the cost of traditional lab tests.

It was later alleged that not only did the multibillion-dollar company's technology not work as advertised, but the company was also secretly using traditional technology to run most of its tests.

The twists and turns in Elizabeth's fascinating fall from grace have been well documented in the likes of dramatic miniseries like Hulu's The Dropout and HBO's documentary The Inventor.

But the riveting and exhaustive tome Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup from Wall Street Journal investigative journalist John Carreyrou — who first exposed Elizabeth and Theranos's fraudulent practices — may be the best place to start for the full rundown on Elizabeth's story.

Amid the chaos that has been Elizabeth's legal proceedings, she has become a mom of two.

While she was awaiting trial back in 2021, Elizabeth announced that she was pregnant with her first child with hotel heir Billy Evans, whom she reportedly secretly married two years prior. News of her pregnancy in addition to several COVID-related issues caused the trial to be delayed multiple times.

Some critics argued that Elizabeth got pregnant for sympathy amid her ongoing trial. She gave birth to her son William Holmes Evans in July 2021 — the month before her trial began — but not much is known about her young son otherwise.

In October 2022, Elizabeth sparked rumors that she was expecting her second child when she appeared visibly pregnant in court. By February 2023, her legal team indicated in its filings she had given birth, per the New York Post.

Elizabeth is set to begin her prison term in April 2023, but her team claims that their appeal will "raise substantial issues" that could lead to a new trial and that Elizabeth should be out on bail in the meantime.
