Mark Zuckerberg and His Wife Are Expecting a Baby Girl

2 min read

Facebook's CEO is now a dad-to-be.

On Friday, Mark Zuckerberg posted a lengthy Facebook update, announcing that he and his wife, Priscilla Chan, are expecting a baby girl.

The baby clearly has already inherited some of her father's tendencies – Zuckerberg said that, in an ultrasound, she gave him a "thumbs up 'like' with her hand."

Zuckerberg also took the opportunity to share his and Chan's struggles following three miscarriages over the last few years.

The Facebook CEO expressed hope that sharing his experiences would allow for more people to feel hope and share their own stories.
