Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder of Facebook and current CEO of Meta, and his wife Dr. Priscilla Chan have welcomed their third child into the world. The couple announced the birth of their daughter, Aurelia Chan Zuckerberg, in a heartwarming post on Instagram.
In the post, Zuckerberg shared two pictures of the newest addition to their family. In the first picture, Zuckerberg can be seen smiling at his newborn daughter, who is wrapped in a blanket and lying in a hospital bassinet. The second picture shows Chan holding Aurelia close to her chest, trying to establish skin-to-skin contact.
Zuckerberg’s caption for the post read, “Welcome to the world, Aurelia Chan Zuckerberg! You’re such a little blessing.” The post quickly went viral, receiving thousands of likes and comments from well-wishers and fans.
This is not the first time that Zuckerberg and Chan have shared news of their growing family on social media. In 2015, the couple announced the birth of their first daughter, Maxima, in a heartfelt letter that outlined their hopes for her future. They also shared a similar letter when their second daughter, August, was born in 2017.
Zuckerberg and Chan have been together since their college days at Harvard University and were married in 2012. The couple has been actively involved in philanthropic work through their Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, which aims to “advance human potential and promote equality.” They have pledged to donate 99% of their Facebook shares to the initiative over their lifetimes.
The birth of Aurelia is a joyous occasion for the couple and their growing family. It is also a reminder of the importance of family and the love and support that it can provide. Zuckerberg and Chan have been open about their struggles with infertility and miscarriage, making the arrival of their third child all the more meaningful.
We wish the family all the best as they embark on this new chapter in their lives.
