Mark Zuckerberg baby: Facebook founder announces third child

Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla have announced they’re expecting their third child. It’s been a tough week for the tech billionaire after his wealth took a hit but today he’s shared some happier news.

Zuckerberg posted the news on Instagram.

He wrote: “Lots of love. Happy to share that Max and August are getting a new baby sister next year!”

He accompanied the announcement with a sweet picture of Priscilla and himself.

Zuckerberg can be seen touching his wife’s baby bump.

Zuckerberg and his wife already share two daughters.

They’re called Maxima Chan Zuckerberg and August Chan Zuckerberg.

The girls are six and five and the 38-year-old Facebook founder first became a dad in 2015.

Zuckerberg is known for his love of Ancient Roman leaders and named his girls accordingly.

Earlier this week it was revealed that Zuckerberg has seen his wealth drop by a whopping $71 billion since 2022 began. The current economy has not been kind to technology billionaires but Zuckerberg’s losses stand out even in a down year.

Zuckerberg’s wealth dropped by more than 50 per cent from its peak of $142 billion in September 2021.

He still has a net worth of nearly $56 billion but is no longer one of the few centi-billionaires on Earth.
