Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, welcomed their second child, a girl named August, the Facebook founder announced Monday.
Mark Zuckerberg and his lovely wife have welcomed the arrival of their second child, pretty little August. August happens to be Zuckerberg’s second daughter after their his first daughter Maxima. And the couple were all beaming with love as they held their baby. The amiable parents crested out an inspiring letter to their new kid which he posted on his profile on Facebook.
Here is the letter:
“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.”
“Dear August, Welcome to the world! Your mom and I are so excited to see who you will become. 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. We wrote that with all the advances in science and technology, your generation should live dramatically better lives than ours, and we have a responsibility to do our part to make that happen. Even though headlines often focus on what’s wrong, we still believe these positive trends will win out. We’re optimists about your generation and the future.”
“I hope you take time to smell all the flowers and put all the leaves you want in your bucket now. I hope you read your favorite Dr. Seuss books so many times you start inventing your own stories about the Vipper of Vipp. I hope you ride the carousel with Max until you’ve tamed every color horse,” the letter read. “I hope you run as many laps around our living room and yard as you want. And then I hope you take a lot of naps. I hope you’re a great sleeper. And I hope even in your dreams you can feel how much we love you.”
“Childhood is magical. You only get to be a child once, so don’t spend it worrying too much about the future,” the parents advised. “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. August, 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. Love, Mom and Dad.”
So much love. Two daughters in a row. Priscilla Chan would be have buying gifts to appeal her in-laws if she has given birth to two consecutive girls to a Nigerian man.
