Mark Zuckerberg Takes Daughter Max for Her First Swim: ‘She Loves It!’

01/24/2016 at 03:05 PM ET

Mark Zuckerberg‘s streak of cute candids with his daughter continues!

The Facebook founder shared a photo Sunday (on Facebook, of course) of him and Maxima in the water together.

“Max’s first swim,” he captioned it. “She loves it!”

Zuckerberg, 31, has shared a string of sweet moments since his daughter’s birth in November, including reading to her alongside his wife, Priscilla Chan, and snuggling with her just days after her birth.

The couple also created a baby time capsule for their daughter, and Zuckerberg wrote at the time, “A few weeks before Max’s birth, Priscilla and I took a morning to reflect and record our hopes for her and all children of her generation. It will be deeply meaningful to show this to her one day.”

Max’s arrival prompted them to give back, too, when Zuckerberg and Chan created the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and pledged to donate 99 percent of their Facebook shares toward the advancement of human potential.

“Your mother and I don’t yet have the words to describe the hope you give us for the future. Your new life is full of promise, and we hope you will be happy and healthy so you can explore it fully,” the couple wrote in an open letter to Max.

“You’ve already given us a reason to reflect on the world we hope you live in.”

Such a sweet baby.

He may have screwed those twins out of their FB money but he sure seems to be a good dad!

Hey Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, this is how a REAL parent (and CEO) behaves, not insisting on being back at the helm 12 hours after birth.

Sam on

So cute she is able to swim even she is a toddler.

Liz, you are something else. It’s none of your business how someone decides to parent. Neither are abusing their children or doing anything illegal. Mind your own business. So tired of comparisons and people slamming others who don’t share their thoughts………………

Aww a sweet picture.

She is such a cute baby!!! Love that family.

It’s so adorable to see how in love he is with his baby girl!

Yaya on

He seriously needs some sun and some chest wax lmao

Maxima is so pretty. I hope they don’t pressure her to be an over achiever and will love and accept her even if she doesn’t want to be the one who brings world peace lol Like if she grows up and wants to be an artist or (like Laurence Fishbourne) a porn star lol

I have a lot of similar views on parenting as Zuckerberg/Chan but at the same time I know that my dreams may not be the dreams of my children-no matter how righteous or noble they may be. They will be their own person and make their own decisions regardless- it’s our job to educate and guide them as much as we can without stifling their own talents and dreams.

So cute! Those chubby legs in a swimsuit are adorable! My husband started taking our son swimming when he was only a few weeks old and he is still a water baby at 13!🙂

Fatherhood looks so good on him! I love it!

That’s not a lake, it’s a heated black-bottom pool.

I love seeing Father’s completely smitten by their children. You can tell she is his world as will be any other kids Priscilla and He have. It’s really sweet.

Nothing about the picture indicates whether he is in an indoor or outdoor pool. He may or may not have an indoor pool in his house…or he could be at a fitness club or any number of places you can be in an indoor pool😉 that isn’t what the picture is about.

For any parent who lives near or is around water often swim lessons from a young age are very important! I highly recommend Infant Swim classes. They teach your infant/toddler to turn on their back and float, even with all of their clothes on, in case they fall into a pool. It saves lives!

Mark is such a rich guy, he could afford a swimming pool in his backyard.

The baby looks nothing like him.

Is she closing her eyes? LOL

I know this should be about the kid, but …. $45 million and he can’t do anything about the farmer tan?

It’s so refreshing to see someone known as a businessman fully embracing and honoring the importance of parenthood and their child. He definitely has his priorities in the right place.
