Mark Zuckerberg is Going to Be a Dad…Again! Yes, it is true that Facebook founder,  and his wife are expecting another child together. And where, of all places, did he choose to make the pregnancy announcement? Facebook, of course!

The cutest Pregnancy Announcement!

Zuckerberg took to his Facebook page on Thursday, March 9, 2017, to announce that he and his wife, Priscilla, were expecting their second child together.


The post started off with- “Priscilla and I are happy to share we’re expecting another baby girl!” The post went on to say- “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.” Along with the post, Zuckerberg also shared photos of himself with his siblings and Priscilla with her siblings, all who happen to be girls.

Since the pregnancy announcement was posted, it has, so far, received 515,465 reactions; been shared 8,060 times and 23,341 people have left comments. Zuckerberg’s Facebook page currently has 87,153,513 followers! According to, Zuckerberg is the 5th richest person in the world, with a current net worth of about $58.1 billion.

Mark and Priscilla already have one daughter, Maxima Chan-Zuckerberg, who was born on November 30, 2015. They announced the pregnancy on July 31, 2015, when she was about 5 months along. The reason for the long wait to make the announcement was that Priscilla had previously suffered three miscarriages and they were cautious.

Mark and Priscilla Chan started dating in 2003 and moved in together in 2010. The couple was married on May 19, 2012, in the backyard of the Palo Alto, California home they shared.
