Billionaire CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan are going to be parents. Mark shared the photo on the left announcing the happy news and also shared details about previous miscarriages ‘to give more people the same hope they felt and help more people feel comfortable sharing their stories as well’.
The couple were married in 2012. The soon-to-be father proudly shared this emotional post with his 33.2 million followers on Facebook.
“Priscilla and I have some exciting news: we’re expecting a baby girl! We’ve been trying to have a child for a couple of years and have had three miscarriages along the way.
“You feel so hopeful when you learn you’re going to have a child. You start imagining who they’ll become and dreaming of hopes for their future. You start making plans, and then they’re gone. It’s a lonely experience.
Most people don’t discuss miscarriages because you worry your problems will distance you or reflect upon you—as if you’re defective or did something to cause this. So you struggle on your own.”
“Our good news is that our pregnancy is now far enough along that the risk of loss is very low and we are very hopeful,” he said.
“Cilla and our child are both healthy, I’m extremely excited to meet her and our dog Beast has no idea what’s coming.”
“So I’m already convinced she takes after me,”
“We’re looking forward to welcoming her into the world and sharing more soon when she’s ready to come out and meet everyone!”
Congratulations to the couple!!!
