Mark and his wife Priscilla already have two daughters: August and Maxima.
Mark Zuckerberg shared a photo of his pregnant wife Priscilla, and noted that he was celebrating the “coming of love in 2023”, recalling that they are expecting a third child. About it writes Daily Mail.
The 38-year-old founder of Meta and his 37-year-old wife, Priscilla Chan, already have two daughters, Maxim and Augusta. Maxima was born in December 2015, and Augusta was born in August 2017.
The share price of his Meta company has fallen by about 60 percent in 2022. But Zuckerberg captioned the photo optimistically, saying: “Happy New Year! For all the adventure and love that will come in 2023.”
Last November, Zuckerberg announced the first major layoffs in the 18-year history of Meta, formerly Facebook.
The CEO admitted he was “mistaken” in telling employees he was “taking responsibility” for the cuts, which make up 13 percent of Meta’s workforce.
He first announced the expectation of a third child just a month earlier through an Instagram post owned by Meta.
“Love. Happy to announce that Max and Augusta are having a new little sister next year,” he wrote, along with another photo in which he also placed his hand on his wife’s belly.
Recall that Zuckerberg and his wife, a philanthropist and former pediatrician, met in line for the bathroom at a party they both attended as Harvard students in 2003.
They soon began dating and married nine years later in 2012, just a day after Facebook went public, and held an intimate ceremony for loved ones in their backyard.
After the birth of their first daughter, the couple announced in a public letter that most of their money would go to charity and not to children.
But Zuckerberg’s financial position looked better in the past than it does today.
The company has lost more than $600 billion in valuation as it spent billions on a controversial leap into virtual reality and the “metaverse”.
Meta has since suspended hiring and laid off thousands of employees.
Almost all of Zuckerberg’s fortune is tied to Meta stock, according to the company’s latest statement, as he owns more than 350 million shares.
Zuckerberg launched Facebook in February 2004 during his sophomore year of college.
It later expanded to buy Instagram and WhatsApp, and announced last fall that either parent company would change its name from Facebook, Inc. to Meta Platforms, Inc. to “reflect its focus on building the metaverse”—a change of direction that appears to have backfired.
Previously, Priscilla said that she and Mark try to raise their children “down to earth”.
“They have responsibilities, just like we do. Mark and I take them both to the office so they can see what we’re doing,” and Mark said that every night before going to bed he discusses things he thinks with his daughters ” the most important things in life.”
In his opinion, this is health care, friends and achieving goals. Mark also said that he and his wife shared responsibilities: she takes care of them in the morning, and he in the evening.
