Mark Zuckerberg & Priscilla Chan Welcome Baby–You Won’t Believe Her Name

It’s official, Max Zuckerberg-Chan is an older sister to little baby August. Zuckerberg, of course, made the announcement on Facebook.

Yup, that’s right–they named her August and she was born in August. No one will ever be able to forget her birthday now.

In a sweet gesture, Zuckerberg and Chan wrote a letter to August, as a younger sister, starting off the letter explaining how they want her to live in a better world–and that it’s their job to help make it so. But they also went on to list some of the things they hope August does and learns:

“You will be busy when you’re older, so I hope you take time to smell all the flowers and put all the leaves you want in your bucket now. I hope you read your favorite Dr. Seuss books so many times you start inventing your own stories about the Vipper of Vipp. I hope you ride the carousel with Max until you’ve tamed every color horse. I hope you run as many laps around our living room and yard as you want. And then I hope you take a lot of naps. I hope you’re a great sleeper. And I hope even in your dreams you can feel how much we love you.

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.”
