Mark Zuckerberg welcomes second child

Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan welcomed their second child, a baby girl named August, the Facebook founder announced Monday.

“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,” he posted on his Facebook profile.

“Dear August, Welcome to the world! Your mom and I are so excited to see who you will become,” it 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. 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.”

Chan, 32, and Zuckerberg, 33, who are already parents to nearly 22-month-old Max, are hoping their daughters “make time to go outside and play” before they’re busy adults.

“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.”

The letter assured baby August that her parents would do the “worrying” while she just focuses on being a kid.
