Facebook’s co-founder, Mark Zuckerberg, and wife welcome 3rd child
Top American businessman and Facebook co-founder, Mark Zuckerberg, and his wife Dr. Priscilla Chan have welcomed their third baby together.
The proud father took to Instagram to announce the birth of their third daughter whom they have named Aurelia Chan Zuckerberg.
In his words:
“Welcome to the world, Aurelia Chan Zuckerberg! You’re such a little blessing.”
The new family member joins her big sisters Max, 7, and August, 5.
Over the years, Zuckerberg has given followers glimpses into his life as a dad, such as by sharing photos of his family on social media. He’s also spoken about how his role as a dad has influenced the way he works.
“The thing that I’m most proud of and that brings me the greatest happiness in life is my family”, he said.
Zuckerberg said becoming a parent “does change the way you think about the world in a dramatic way” as well as made him reevaluate his schedule.
“Having a family changes the way you redo your time and think about that,” the co-founder of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, which he runs with his wife, continued. “One kind of special thing I love to do with our daughter [Max] is bath time. I mean, she’s always just been a water baby. She loves swimming, she loves the water. I used to do meetings super late, and now I make sure three times a week I’m home to give her her bath and clean her and it’s just a fun thing that we do.”
Zuckerberg and Chan first started dating in 2003, after meeting at Zuckerberg’s Harvard University fraternity when he was a sophomore and she was a freshman.
After almost 10 years of dating, they tied the knot in May 2012 in a ceremony in their Palo Alto backyard — surprising their guests, who thought they were there to celebrate Chan’s graduation from UCSF medical school.
