Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his philanthropic wife Dr. Priscilla Chan have welcomed their second daughter to the world. And being born in August, guess what they named her?! August! Well, Zuckerberg might be a tech genius, but when it comes to creative names, don’t expect him to think of anything but the obvious.
In a cute post on his official Facebook page, Mark Zuckerberg made the happy announcement, along with a personal letter written to his bundle of joy. The family photo is so picture perfect, with their first daughter, Maxima (Max) also making the cut. In the letter, Zuckerberg-Chan clan write to their tot a heartfelt note that reads:
“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. Even though headlines often focus on what’s wrong, we still believe those positive trends will win out. We’re optimistic about your generation and the future.”
The letter continues, “But rather than write about growing up, we want to talk about childhood. The world can be a serious place. That’s why it’s important to make time to go outside and play. 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.”
“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. 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 the children of your generation.”
Let’s congratulate the Zuckerbergs for their new arrival!
