Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan has welcomed their second daughter named August. Mark posted a family picture saying that he and his wife are dreamers about your generation and the future.
Mark Zuckerberg posted, “Priscilla and I are so happy to welcome our daughter August! We wrote her a letter about the world we hope she grows up in, and also hoping she doesn’t grow up too fast.” The name August came from the name Augustus which has Latin origins. The name signifies reverence or holding someone in high regard.
In a letter to new born August, Mark said,” Dear August, Welcome to the world! Your mom and I are so excited to see who you will become.” The letter assured baby August that her parents would do the “worrying” while she just focuses on being a kid. Priscilla and Zuckerberg are already parents to 22-month old Maxima and are hoping their daughter “make time to go outside and play” before they are busy growing up.
Mark also said, Childhood is magical, and you can get to be a child only once. We will do all the worrying; you just focus on being kind. We make sure the world is a better place for you and all children in your generation. And I hope even in your dreams you can feel how much we love you.
When their first child Maxima (Max) was born in 2015, Mark Zuckerberg announced the creation of Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. Mark will be taking two months of paternity leave like he did when his first daughter was born. The couple also shared some of the struggles that come with pregnancy as Priscilla had three miscarriages before giving birth to their first daughter.
