Facebook founder and Chief Executive Officer, Mark Zuckerberg, has announced on (where else?) his Facebook profile him and his wife, Priscilla Chan, are expecting another baby.
Mark and Priscilla welcomed their first daughter, Max, in 2015 after incidences of three miscarriages.
“After our difficult experience having Max, we weren’t sure what to expect or whether we’d be able to have another child,” said Mark announcing the conception of their new baby.
“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,” the Facebook founder, who has three sisters and whose wife has two sisters, added.
“We are all better people because of the strong women in our lives: sisters, mothers and friends. We can’t wait to welcome our new little one and do our best to raise another strong woman,” said the Facebook CEO revealing the sex status of the baby.
With the advent of VR or AR, especially championed by Mark, I was of the thought that we could probably see a video of Mark and Priscilla’s next baby playing around uploaded on his profile before we actually see the baby IRL.
But, nay! Technology is still way behind!
So, Mark and Priscilla are expecting another baby girl; if the first baby is Max, would the next baby be Min — as in ‘Maximum’ and ‘Minimum’? — especially as Priscilla has Chinese origin, nothing is impossible. LOL…
Both Mark and Priscilla must be very lucky(?) having these two lovely girls; at my place, two walking sticks that is!
“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,” enthused Mark.
Mark further stated in his post that he grew up with three sisters and they taught him to learn from smart, strong women.
“They weren’t just my sisters but some of my best friends,” Mark stated, adding that “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”.
“Priscilla grew up with two sisters and they taught her the importance of family, caring for others and hard work.
“They supported each other as first generation college students and in their careers in medicine and business.
“They have so many inside jokes, the kind only siblings can understand,” Mark narrated.
Min, welcome in advance. Oh! She hasn’t been named yet.
