Many fans of the Meta CEO rushed to the comments to congratulate him and his wife on the newest addition to their family.

One fan wrote, “Congrats to you and your family”, while a second penned, “Congratulations and best wishes momma”.

“What a beautiful baby.... Congratulations”, said a third follower. A fourth added, “Congrats Zuck. What a beautiful moment. Cheers to a great life”.

The 38-year-old wrote, “Lots of love. Happy to share that Max and August are getting a new baby sister next year!”.

Mark recently shared a tribute for Priscilla on Instagram to mark her 38th birthday. The dad-of-three posted a lovely photo of him kissing his partner on the cheek while cradling her baby bump. 

“Happy birthday to my favourite person! (Or, as August likes to call her, the main character in our family.)”, he penned. 

Mark and Priscilla started dating in 2003 after they met at a party at university, and went on to tie the knot in May 2012. The couple then had seven-year-old Maxima in 2015 and five-year-old August in 2017, before welcoming baby Aurelia.
