From Facebook to family of five!
Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan announced on Friday that their third baby girl arrived.
“Welcome to the world, Aurelia Chan Zuckerberg!” the couple wrote via Instagram. “You’re such a little blessing.”
Zuckerberg and his fellow Harvard University grad previously welcomed daughters Max, 7, and August, 5, in 2015 and 2017, respectively.
The entrepreneur, 38, mentioned the little ones in his September 2022 Instagram post announcing his 38-year-old wife’s pregnancy.
“Lots of love,” Zuckerberg captioned a smiling selfie with his hand on Chan’s budding belly.
“Happy to share that Max and August are getting a new baby sister next year!”
The couple met in 2003 at a frat party while in line for the bathroom.
“He was this nerdy guy who was just a little bit out there,” Chan told The New Yorker in 2010, joking that Zuckerberg had a “nerdy, computer-science appeal.”
On their first date, the Meta CEO told Chan that he would rather go out with her than “finish his take-home midterm.”
The sentiment “appalled” the “the type-A first child,” the pediatrician told “Today” show co-hosts in 2014.
The couple got married in 2012, and Zuckerberg called Chan the “most important” part of his life in a commencement speech at their alma mater five years later.
While trying to start a family, the doctor struggled to conceive and struggled three miscarriages.
Zuckerberg called the pregnancy losses “a lonely experience” in a 2015 Facebook post.
As their family began growing, he told North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University students that he had been changed in a “pretty dramatic way” by parenthood.
“The thing that I’m most proud of and the thing that brings me the most happiness, is my family,” Zuckerberg gushed in 2017.
