Looks like their social network is about to get a little bit bigger!
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg took to Facebook — naturally — to announce some very exciting news: he's going to be a dad!
The 31-year-old revealed that his wife of three years, Priscilla Chan, is expecting a baby girl. "This will be a new chapter in our lives," he wrote. "We've already been so fortunate for the opportunity to touch people's lives around the world...now we'll focus on making the world a better place for our child."

Mark also opened up about the pair's previous struggles to conceive. “We’ve been trying to have a child for a couple of years and have had three miscarriages along the way," he shared.
“You feel so hopeful when you learn you’re going to have a child. 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."
But thankfully, Priscilla is now far enough along that "the risk of loss is very low," Mark wrote, adding that the couple's dog Beast has "no idea what's coming."
The billionaire goes on to say that he's "extremely excited to meet" his little girl, as are we! Congrats to the soon-to-be parents!
