Their daughter Max was born on 01-Dec-2015.
He also wrote a heart kindling letter to his daughter Max which was published on his Facebook page.


Zuckerberg and his wife, Dr. Priscilla Chan, mentioned in the letter that the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative will “join people across the world to advance human potential and promote equality for all children in the next generation.”

“Our initial areas of focus will be personalized learning, curing disease, connecting people and building strong communities,” the proud new parents wrote in the letter, which was posted to both of their Facebook pages.

Giving more details about their huge gift, Zuckerberg and Priscilla mentioned in their letter that they felt “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.”
