Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Dr. Priscilla Chan, announced on Thursday that they were having their second child. Zuckerberg and Chan are already parents to their first child. Their daughter named Max was born in late 2015. And now, they are expecting another angel on their family.
Mark Zuckerberg And Priscilla Chan Announced Another Baby Girl
Zuckerberg announced that they are having another baby girl through a Facebook post. His announcement came after knowing that Chan's tummy is having another daughter and with an ode to all the female who influence both him and his wife. "We are all better people because of the strong women in our lives"
According to Fox News, Zuckerberg can't wait anymore to welcome their new little one. He also said that they will do their best as parents to raise another strong woman. After all the difficulty they experienced having Max, Zuckerberg said that they "weren't sure what to expect or whether we'd be able to have another child."
Facebook As A Useful Social Network
Zuckerberg is no stranger to the attention especially on exposing his private life, according to CNET. As the founder of Facebook with almost 2 billion users, he's used to posting about Max's first step, telling his travel plans and showing off personal projects, such as the smart home assistant named Jarvis.
When Zuckerberg used his Facebook account to announce Max's birth back in 2015, he and his wife also pledged to give away 99 percent of their total wealth. To obtain that, they set up a nonprofit organization called the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative. The main goal of the corporation is to give the cure to all diseases in Max's lifetime and push for personalized learning and study habits in schools.
Zuckerberg has also been very honest about their efforts to start a family. When Max was born after Chan had three consecutive miscarriages, Zuckerberg said on Thursday that his first response was to have a healthy baby. Last year, Zuckerberg said he doesn't know when he'll let Max begin to go on Facebook. He also said that he's still unsure of how to manage to raise a child in the internet age.
