Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan announced on Friday they are expecting their first child, a baby girl. Naturally, Zuckerberg revealed the exciting news in a Facebook post, sharing a photo of himself, their dog Beast, and Chan cradling her baby bump. See the photo at right and below!
In sharing the news, Zuckerberg wrote, “Priscilla and I have some exciting news: we’re expecting a baby girl! This will be a new chapter in our lives. We’ve already been so fortunate for the opportunity to touch people’s lives around the world — Cilla as a doctor and educator, and me through this community and philanthropy. Now we’ll focus on making the world a better place for our child and the next generation.”
The Facebook founder went on to note that he and Chan have been trying for a baby for the past several years, but his wife sadly suffered three miscarriages. “You feel so hopeful when you learn you’re going to have a child. You start imagining who they’ll become and dreaming of hopes for their future. You start making plans, and then they’re gone. It’s a lonely experience,” wrote Zuckerberg.
He continued by noting that he and Chan wanted to share their struggles with having a child because they wanted to “give more people the same hope we felt.” Zuckerberg added, “Our good news is that our pregnancy is now far enough along that the risk of loss is very low and we are very hopeful. Cilla and our child are both healthy, I’m extremely excited to meet her.” He then joked, “In our ultrasound, she even gave me a thumbs up ‘like’ with her hand, so I’m already convinced she takes after me.”
