Congratulations are in order for Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan.
The Facebook founder, 31, and his wife, 30, have welcomed their first precious daughter baby Max. Mark announced via Facebook Tuesday.
In a heartfelt announcement, Zuckerberg started his post by saying, “Priscilla and I are so happy to welcome our daughter Max into this world!”
He also said that his family will give away 99% of their Facebook shares – $45B – over their lifetime.
“For her birth, we wrote a letter to her about the world we hope she grows up in.
It’s a world where our generation can advance human potential and promote equality — by curing disease, personalizing learning, harnessing clean energy, connecting people, building strong communities, reducing poverty, providing equal rights and spreading understanding across nations.
We are committed to doing our small part to help create this world for all children. We will give 99% of our Facebook shares — currently about $45 billion — during our lives to join many others in improving this world for the next generation.
