Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife are expecting their second child. Zuckerberg revealed the news on Women’s Day with a powerful note.
Priscilla and I are happy to share we're expecting another baby girl! I grew up with three sisters and they taught me to learn from smart, strong women. They weren't just my sisters but some of my best friends. They've gone on to write books, excel at performance, music, sports, cooking and their careers. They showed me how to compete and still laugh together afterwards. Priscilla grew up with two sisters and they taught her the importance of family, caring for others and hard work. They supported each other as first generation college students and in their careers in medicine and business. They have so many inside jokes — the kind only siblings can understand. We are all better people because of the strong women in our lives — sisters, mothers and friends. We can't wait to welcome our new little one and do our best to raise another strong woman.
Zuckerberg emphasises on how women are no less than men, giving examples of his sisters, wife Priscilla and Priscilla’s sister. Each of them are achievers in their fields.
Zuckerberg married his college sweetheart Priscilla Chan in 2012, after dating for over nine years. The couple’s first child, a daughter named Maxima Chan Zuckerberg, was born in December 2015.
