Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Dr. Priscilla Chan, have welcomed their first child, a daughter, into the world. Zuckerberg took to Facebook with the announcement, writing “Priscilla and I are so happy to welcome our daughter Max into this world!”
The baby girl, named Maxima Chan Zuckerberg, was born last week and weighed 7lbs., 3 oz.
To celebrate their daughter’s birth, Zuckerberg and Chan released a lengthy letter addressed to Max, outlining their goals for her future. In the letter, the couple pledge to donate 99% of their Facebook shares (which he currently values at 45 billion dollars) during their lifetimes to “join many others in improving this world for the next generation.”
The new parents end the letter with a heartfelt message for their daughter, “Max, we love you and feel a great responsibility to leave the world a better place for you and all children. We wish you a life filled with the same love, hope and joy you give us. We can’t wait to see what you bring to this world.”
