It's official! The father of Facebook is now father to a bouncing baby girl! Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan welcomed their first child, and announced it in a beautiful letter to the little girl posted — where else — on Facebook.

The first bit of big news? The baby's oh-so-trendy name.

Meet Max Zuckerberg:


The couple, who will be taking two months together to get to know their new baby (and yes, they've expanded paternity leave overall at Facebook, so this is not just a perk for the founder), have hopped right on the "boys names for girls" bandwagon with Max.

The little girl will be in good company, too, with the likes of Maxwell Drew (daughter of Jessica Simpson), Frankie (daughter of Drew Barrymore), Wyatt (daughter of Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis) and a whole long list of other celebrity kids whose parents weren't afraid to peruse pages through the baby name book.

Oh, and speaking of unafraid, they might be new parents embarking on the biggest adventure of their lives: Zuckerberg and Chan aren't afraid of taking on huge challenges even with a lot of sleepless nights ahead. While announcing their baby news, they also spilled the beans on their brand new venture: the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, a huge fundraising effort to change the world for kids across the globe.
