Mark Zuckerberg is about to be a father for the third time.
The CEO of Meta announced, Wednesday, that he and his wife, Priscilla Chan, are expecting their third child, a girl.

Zuckerberg and Chan, college sweethearts, have been married since 2012 – their wedding day was a day after Facebook’s initial public offering. Facebook changed its company name to Meta in 2021.
Their eldest daughter Max (short for Maxima) was born in 2015, and on the day the couple announced her birth, they also revealed their charitable fund, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. The fund supports Zuckerberg’s dead wealth and aims to cure the world’s diseases during the life of their daughter.
The couple’s second daughter, August, was born in 2017. Prior to her birth, Zuckerberg said he would take two months of paternity leave. (Meta offers four months of leave to all new parents.)
Zuckerberg was previously one of the world’s richest people, but his net worth has been trounced this year. Although it started 2022 with a fortune of $125 billion, it has since fallen to $70 billion, or about 55%, after Facebook’s rebranding to Meta and the company’s first-ever drop in user numbers this year. Zuckerberg is currently among the 20 richest people in the world, according to Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
