Elizabeth Holmes, the founder of the infamous blood-testing startup Theranos, has recently given birth to her second child. Holmes has largely been out of the public eye since her company was exposed as a fraud in 2018, and she was subsequently charged with multiple counts of fraud. She has since pleaded not guilty, and her trial is set to begin in August 2021.
The pregnancy was made public after Holmes’ lawyers requested a delay in the trial due to her pregnancy and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The judge granted the delay, pushing back the trial date from March to August.
The news of Holmes’ second child has caused a stir online, with many wondering how this new development could affect her ongoing legal battle. Some have speculated that the delay in the trial could work in Holmes’ favor, as it may give her more time to prepare her defense. Others have pointed out that the birth of a child could also put a strain on Holmes’ finances, as she is reportedly facing millions of dollars in legal fees.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding Holmes’ trial and the future of Theranos, the birth of her second child is a reminder that life goes on even amidst legal battles and scandal. Only time will tell how this new development will affect the ongoing saga of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos.
