Despite their busy schedules, the couple has spoken publicly about the importance of family and work-life balance. In a Facebook post announcing the birth of their second daughter, August, Mark Zuckerberg wrote: “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.”
The birth of their third child is sure to bring even more joy to the couple’s lives, and it will be exciting to see how their family continues to grow and evolve in the years to come.
