Mark Zuckerberg Dedicates Sweet Video to Daughter Max: ‘It Will Be Deeply Meaningful to Show Her One Day’

12/02/2015 at 08:00 PM ET

Mark Zuckerberg has created a baby time capsule with a powerful message for his newborn daughter Max.

The Facebook CEO and wife Dr. Priscilla Chan shared a touching video on his social media platform Wednesday that was recorded prior to their baby girl’s arrival.

“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,” Zuckerberg, 31, wrote. “It will be deeply meaningful to show this to her one day.”

In the two-minute clip, the couple share their hopes for Max’s future specifically about “all the things that should be improved” in the world.

“The only way we reach our full human potential is if we unlock the potential of every person around the world,” the first-time father shared in the video.

“We need to make sure that there are investments and programs that insure that the future isn’t going to be like today. The future is going to be better than today,” Chan added.

In fact the Zuckerbergs announced the foundation of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, an organization with the mission to advance human potential and promote equality.

In an open letter to their daughter, the proud parents revealed they will contribute 99 percent of their Facebook shares (worth about $45 billion) during their lives to advance the cause.

Haylie Duff: My Baby Fussed Every Time I Nursed Her After Exercising

10/29/2015 at 09:00 AM ET

Like many new moms, Haylie Duff was eager to get moving again after giving birth to daughter Ryan Ava in May. But the Real Girl’s Kitchen star didn’t realize a little exercise would have unintended consequences — for her breast milk.

“At the two and a half, three-month mark I was like, ‘Okay, I’m ready to go back to spin and yoga and Pilates. And the minute that I started exercising, my baby fussed every time I nursed her,” Duff, 30, said in a frank PEOPLE Mom Talk video about the ups and downs of breastfeeding.

Garcelle Beauvais on Breastfeeding: ‘I Didn’t Nurse and I Got a Lot of Flak for It’

10/28/2015 at 03:15 PM ET

Breastfeeding is often billed as one of the most “natural” things a new mother can do, but Garcelle Beauvais says it simply wasn’t the right choice for her — and that’s okay.

“I didn’t nurse and I got a lot of flak for it,” Beauvais, 48, says in PEOPLE’s new Mom Talk video series about her decision to not nurse her twin sons, Jax and Jaid, after they were born eight years ago. “People are like ‘Oh, you’re not going to breastfeed your children?’ ”

Molly Sims, 42, who also took part in the discussion alongside Beauvais, Soleil Moon Frye and Haylie Duff, says she also felt judged after she needed to supplement her milk supply after giving birth.

“I had so much judgment,” she shares. “I had a horrible milk supply. I went on supplements, I went on an illegal drug from Canada. I did everything, and basically they were like, ‘You have to start supplementing right away. You physically do not make enough milk to feed your baby.’ ”

Marisa Miller: Why I’m Posing Nude (While Pregnant!) for PETA

05/05/2015 at 01:30 PM ET

Marisa Miller is baring it all for a cause close to her heart.

The mom-to-be — who previously posed nude while pregnant with son Gavin Lee, now 2  — is stripping down to show her support for animals in captivity as part of PETA‘s new campaign, SeaWorldofHurt.

“I’ve always been an animal lover and I do a lot with ocean conservation,” the model, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“I always see dolphins when I surf, but I didn’t have the knowledge about how they are acquired. When Blackfish came out, I saw it and I was so upset.”

For the ad, Miller shows off her baby belly while lying naked in a bathtub, mimicking the world of captured killer whales, who are confined to living in small enclosures.

“Even the tanks they do their ridiculous tricks in are way bigger than where they actually sleep,” she explains. “They’re completely confined. That’s why they have all these dental problems, because they are chewing on metal and concrete — they can’t even move.”

Evan Ross: Ashlee Simpson’s Son and I Are ‘Like Homies’

02/19/2015 at 04:15 PM ET

When Evan Ross tied the knot with Ashlee Simpson in August, the wedding was about more than the couple’s love: They were also sharing their day with someone very special.

The singer/actor said during a Thursday appearance on The Wendy Williams Show that he was honored to have Simpson’s son Bronx Mowgli there for the celebration.

“He was so excited when we got married,” Ross, 26, tells Wendy Williams. “I was like, ‘It’s just as much your wedding as ours.’ ”

But the 6-year-old’s excitement didn’t come as a surprise. According to Ross, dating — and eventually marrying — Simpson has been a smooth transition for the blended families.

“He’s my friend, we became like homies, we’re good buddies,” he explains of Simpson’s son with ex-husband Pete Wentz.

Keira Knightley: Why the Thought of Having a Boy Is ‘Terrifying’

02/17/2015 at 10:15 AM ET

If Keira Knightley ends up having a boy, she’s going to be extra careful when changing his diapers.

“Somebody said to me the other day, the problem with boys is — sorry, this is horrible — but when you’re changing their nappies, you can get the wee in your face … I never knew that before, so it was terrifying,” the pregnant Oscar nominee says in an appearance Tuesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“That doesn’t seem fun,” Ellen DeGeneres replies.

“No,” says the actress, 29. “And apparently they roll as well, so you have to try to stop them while you’re trying to grab something else in order to stop them peeing in your face. So that sounds quite interesting.”
