There’s a new baby on Facebook!

Facebook co-founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg has kept his followers on their toes with baby updates for months now, an openness about his personal life that is highly respected. On Tuesday (1st December), he officially announced the new addition to his “little family”, the birth of his daughter Maxima Chan Zuckerberg aka Max.

In his Facebook update, he wrote:


We’re so happy to welcome our daughter Max into this world. Everyone is happy and healthy. Thank you for all your love and support through our pregnancy. There is so much joy in our little family.

In a separate post, he pledged that he and his 30-year-old wife, Dr. Priscilla Chan, will be give 99% of their Facebook shares “during our lives” – holdings currently worth more than USD45 billion – to charitable purposes.

The open letter also confirmed that both Mark and Priscilla are forming a new organisation called the “Chan Zuckerberg Initiative” to manage the money, through an unusual limited liability corporate structure. “Our initial areas of focus will be personalized learning, curing disease, connecting people and building strong communities,” they wrote.

In other news, Mark also confirmed that his daughter has met their mop-like Hungarian Sheepdog (Puli) named Beast. Which is kind of amazing in a very special sort of way.

Congratulations, Mark and Priscilla! We can’t wait to see more adorable baby Max photos 🙂
