Elon Musk's father has admitted he isn't proud of his billionaire son, doesn't drive a Tesla and explained why he married and had a baby with his stepdaughter in a candid radio interview.  

Errol Musk, 76, called into an Australian radio show on Monday morning for a bizarre 20-minute interview. 

The father of the Tesla CEO said Elon had 'surpassed the mark' of what he deemed success but said the Musk family had 'been doing a lot of things for a long time'.  

'Your offspring is a genius. He's worth so much money and has created so many things, you can't take that away from him. Are you proud?' one of the hosts asked. 

He first deferred when asked where Elon got his genius from, suggesting it may have been the milk man who used to visit them rather than Errol or mother Maye.  

Musk then declared he wasn't proud: 'No. You know, we are a family that have been doing a lot of things for a long time, it's not as if we suddenly started doing something'.

Errol said his children have been doing 'interesting things' for a long time and  he had not once received a handout from his billionaire son and that it was Elon's younger brother Kimbal who was his 'pride and joy'. 

He also made clear to clarify that Kimbal himself was a billionaire, though not nearly as wealthy as Elon, the richest man on earth.

Errol said his billionaire son isn't as happy as he could be when it came to his success and said he feels as if he is running five years behind schedule, suggesting even that he might be an underachiever.

'He is frustrated with progress and it's understandable,' the 76-year-old said.

When pressed on what Elon would be up to were he actually 'on schedule' he suggested he'd have his scholarship up long ago.  

'I know it sounds crazy, but we tend to think like that as a family. He's 50 now and I still think of him as a little boy. But he's 50, I mean that's an old man.'

In reference to recent shirtless photos of his son on a boat in Greece, he said he had been encouraging his son to eat better and take a supplement. 

'Elon is very strongly built but he's been eating badly,' he told the hosts.  

Errol even said he had recommended garcinia cambogia - a supplement that can supposedly aid weight loss without additional exercise or dieting - to his son.

He also said that his son doesn't just give him
