Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, Wife Welcome Third Child

Mark Zuckerberg and his 38-year-old wife Priscilla have welcomed their third child together.

The Meta founder announced the happy news on his very own Instagram platform on Friday.

The 38-year-old shared that their third child is a daughter that they have named Aurelia Chan Zuckerberg.

‘Welcome to the world, Aurelia Chan Zuckerberg! You’re such a little blessing,’ the New York native captioned the post.

Mark who laid off 10,000 Meta employees earlier this month  is seen beaming at the swaddled baby and his wife is seen in a second image holding Aurelia on her chest while still in her hospital bed.

The couple are said to already have daughters Maxima, seven, born in December 2015, and August, five, born in August 2017.

However, in January he said he was looking forward to a new baby in the house.

The Meta founder captioned the image: ‘Happy New Year! Here’s to all of the adventures and love coming in 2023.’

Zuckerberg wore a tuxedo and has one hand rested on his wife’s pregnant stomach.

He first announced his wife was expecting their third baby in September.

‘Lots of love. Happy to share that Max and August are getting a new baby sister next year,’ he wrote, alongside a different photo in which he also placed his hand on his wife’s stomach.

Zuckerberg and his wife, a philanthropist and a former pediatrician met in the line for the bathroom at a party they were both attending as Harvard students in 2003.

They soon began dating and got married nine years later in 2012, just a day after Facebook was taken public, and held an intimate ceremony in their backyard.

After the birth of their first daughter, the couple announced in a public letter that most of their money would be given to charity as opposed to their children.

Zuckerberg and Chan started the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative together, an organization dedicated to ‘personalized learning, curing disease, connecting people and building strong communities,’ and said that ’99 percent of their Facebook shares’ would go towards that cause.

During a 2019 interview with Gayle King, Zuckerberg spoke about keeping his children humble despite the family’s fortune.

‘How do you raise children when you can really give them anything, materially, to be grounded?’ King asked, to which the Facebook founder replied, ‘Well I think, first of all, we don’t give them everything.
