Though Wilson didn’t specify which twin the conversation was with, the post followed Monday’s breaking news that Vivian had decided to publicly distance herself from the Tesla CEO. The proud mom also said she told the twin, “I’m very proud of you,” to which the child replied, “I’m proud of myself!”
