And here’s to many more! Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla celebrated their daughter’s first birthday recently! At one 1 year old, Max already knows how to be the life of the party. Read all about the adorable family’s bash right here!
Happy birthday, Max! The daughter of Mark Zuckerberg, 32, and Priscilla Chan, 31, turned one year old recently– a huge milestone for the loving family of three! Priscilla posted the cutest photo of her bundle of joy on Facebook with the caption, “I can’t believe it’s been a year!” Naturally it wouldn’t be a birthday bash with a little gift giving, but since Max (birth name Maxina) doesn’t even know how to appreciate a present yet, she decided to surprise her parents instead with a sweet gesture. “She kissed me on the cheek for the first time yesterday,” continues Priscilla. Kisses are the best birthday presents, aren’t they?!
Last night was Max's first election. She's got a lot of election nights ahead of her. Holding Max, I thought about all the work ahead of us to create the world we want for our children. This work is bigger than any presidency and progress does not move in a straight line. The most important opportunities of Max's generation — like curing all disease, improving education, connecting everyone and promoting equal opportunity — will take long term focus and finding new ways for all of us to work together, sometimes over decades. We are all blessed to have the ability to make the world better, and we have the responsibility to do it. Let's go work even harder.
Ever since announcing Max’s arrival into this world on Dec. 1, 2015, Mark has been putting his skyrocketing Facebook business on the back burner to focus on fatherhood. The social media maven couldn’t help but gush over his newborn in Mar., posting a photo and message on Facebook that made our hearts melt. “Most important meeting of the day,” he captioned a photo of himself feeding Max with a baby bottle and cradling her in his tech-savvy arms.
But the cuteness doesn’t stop there! Mark and Priscilla have been on top of their game when it comes to sharing Max updates. They revealed a first picture of her as soon as she was born, and have since documented her vaccinations, swimming adventures, cuddle sessions, and throwback photos of a pregnant Priscilla. Of course Mark will go back to work eventually as he already has the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative in motion, but for now, it’s playtime. The initiative hopes to aims to “promote equality for all children,” and we can’t wait to see how it pans out!
HollywoodLifers, how sweet does Max’s first birthday celebration sound?!
