Mark Zuckerberg and Wife Priscilla Celebrate the Holidays in New Family Photo

A new baby … and a new year!

Proud dad Mark Zuckerberg welcomed the new year with wife Dr. Priscilla Chan and their 5-week-old daughter Maxima by sharing a festive family photo Friday on Facebook.

In the sweet snapshot, the new parents are all smiles as the social media mogul cradles their baby girl, who’s all dolled up in a gray dress.

“I hope your 2016 is happy, healthy and productive,” Zuckerberg, 31, writes. “As the world faces new challenges and opportunities, may we all find the courage to keep making progress and making all our days count.”

The couple welcomed their first child in November and have been sharing photos of their new life on Facebook.

But while Max looks oh-so cute in her holiday wear, Zuckerberg and Chan really went all out for the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

“The force is strong with this one,” the Facebook CEO recently captioned a photo of his baby girl dressed in a Jedi cloak with her light saber (and a Chewbacca, Darth Vader and BB-8 doll) close by.

Very sweet. His life definitely won’t be the same now that he’s a father. He’s in for a great adventure.

They look so happy!! Wishing them much health and happiness!!


Cute but utterly mundane! Come on, Mark, millions of people have photos like this in their albums. While I realize your enormous ego is at work here, realize that this is nothing different than what most other people do with their first child: Photos galore! Again, cute but terribly ordinary.

Cute picture! But NO mention whatsoever of Mrs. Zuckerberg debuting her slim, rocking post-baby bod.

Beautiful family. Nice to see the mom sporting a normal post baby baby.

Adorable. How nice to see the parents all dressed up and their little princess in a lovely baby dress. Sure wish they could talk some sense into The Kanye West family (dad, mom, and kids) who look like Gothic freaks.

They look so happy and full of love, and I’m thrilled for them. Their daughter is beautiful, and they have a lot to be proud of in her.

But all I think of when I hear her name is a Nissan Maxima.

Congratulation Mr Mark Zuckerberg and your family

Family goals. College sweethearts who are both extremely successful in their own careers, have donated over 1.6 billion to charity, AND have an adorable baby? The American dream is live and well in the Zuckerberg household.

I love posts about this family. No matter the context, they both seems so down to earth, reasonable, loving each other and enjoying the precious time with their little girl. And I love the name, too.
