Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan will be welcoming their third born next year.

In a post, the Meta founder said, “Lots of love. Happy to share that Max and August are getting a new baby sister next year!”

The two love birds who tied the knot in 2012 welcomed their firstborn daughter Maxima better known as Max in 2015.

The excited Zuckerberg then penned a long heartfelt letter to her with a part reading, “Your new life is full of promise, and we hope you will be happy and healthy so you can explore it fully. You’ve already given us a reason to reflect on the world we hope you live in.”

Two years later, the couple welcomed their secondborn daughter August whose name signified the month Ms Chan gave birth.

In yet another letter to his daughter talking to her about childhood. “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 children in your generation,” he said.

Previously, Zuckerberg opened up on the struggle his wife underwent before conceiving their first child.

Long when they wanted to start a family Zuckerberg revealed that Ms Chan had undergone three miscarriages.

“You feel so hopeful when you learn you’re going to have a child,” he shared.

“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.”
