Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife have welcomed their second baby girl, on Monday, with a heartfelt written letter to her.
Zuckerberg and Priscilla already have a toddler daughter, Max, born in 2015. They named their second child August.
The couple posted a photo of the family, along with a letter they wrote to August hoping she will get to enjoy her childhood.
He stated, “Priscilla and I are happy to share we’re expecting another baby girl!”
“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.”
Zuckerberg went on to praise the strong women in his life and shared his hopes for the future of his daughters.
He said: “My sisters have 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,” he wrote. “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.”
