The expanded Zuckerberg family

The Zuckerberg family welcomed another daily user, as Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, announced the birth of their daughter, August Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg and Chan were married in May 2012, and they welcomed their first child, daughter Max Zuckerberg, in December 2015.

They announced in March that they were expecting a second child.

Zuckerberg wrote in the announcement (embedded below), penned as a letter to August: “When your sister was born, we wrote a letter about the world we hoped she and now you will grow up in—a world with better education, fewer diseases, stronger communities and greater equality. We wrote that with all of the advances in science and technology, your generation should live dramatically better lives than ours, and we have a responsibility to do our part to make that happen. Even though headlines often focus on what’s wrong, we still believe these positive trends will win out. We’re optimists about your generation and the future.”
