Mark Zuckerberg and wife Dr. Priscilla Chan Expecting Second Child


Congratulations to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his pediatrician wife, Dr. Priscilla Chan on expecting their second child. Mark announced the news, naturally, on his Facebook page yesterday.

He also announced that the new baby is a girl as well and expressed delight about being the dad to two little princesses.


“Priscilla and I are happy to share we’re expecting another baby girl!” he captioned several photos of himself with his sisters and Priscilla and her sister. “After our difficult experience having Max, we weren’t sure what to expect or whether we’d be able to have another child. When Priscilla and I first found out she was pregnant again, our first hope was that the child would be healthy. My next hope was that it would be a girl. I cannot think of a greater gift than having a sister and I’m so happy Max and our new child will have each other.”


He continued to chime in about the strength of women.


“I grew up with three sisters and they taught me to learn from smart, strong women,” Zuckerberg stated. “They weren’t just my sisters but some of my best friends. They’ve gone on to write books, excel at performance, music, sports, cooking and their careers. They showed me how to compete and still laugh together afterwards.”

Famed COO Sherly Sanberg chimed in her well wishes along with the many others:
