Mark Zuckerberg is the founder of billionaire company – Facebook. He unveils the arrival of his second daughter via a Facebook post including his family picture. Mark and his wife Priscilla Chan have named their second child August which fits in with her birth month. The name means respected and impressive.
When Mark and Priscilla learnt about their second daughter, Mark shared some beautiful pictures of his and Priscilla’s childhood. See them here!!
Mark introduces the little one by addressing a letter to her online. In this letter Mark speaks about how happy they are feeling as parents. He speaks about what kind of world he wants both his daughters to grow up in. The letter starts,
“Dear August, Welcome to the world! Your mom and I are so excited to see who you will become.”
Mark and Priscilla had written a similar letter when August’s older sister Maxima was born. He cites, “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.”
Mark tells August how optimistic they are about her future in this techno-prone world. As parents, Mark and Priscilla want to discuss about their childhood. He wants August to enjoy her childhood and asks her to “go outside and play”. Mark wants her to experience all that’s good and bad in the world. He says, “You will be busy when you’re older, so I hope you take time to smell all the flowers and put all the leaves you want in your bucket now.” The father expresses his love for daughter stating, “And I hope even in your dreams you can feel how much we love you.”
Mark wants to let his daughters know and experience the magic of childhood. “Childhood is magical. You only get to be a child once, so don’t spend it worrying too much about the future. You’ve got us for that, and we’ll do everything we possibly can to make sure the world is a better place for you and all children in your generation,” he writes.
He concludes the beautiful and emotional letter by wishing August a joyous and adventurous life ahead. “We love you so much and we’re so excited to go on this adventure with you. We wish you a life of joy, love and the same hope you give us.”
This Facebook post was signed with love from ‘Mom and Dad’.
This indeed is the most heart-warming welcome August could have received from her parents. You’re a lucky gal August!!
