Mark Zuckerberg Posts Adorable Photo Showing What His Paternity Leave Is REALLY Like
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg may run one of the most successful companies in the world — but back at home, he’s just an average dad on diaper duty.
On Friday, the brand-new dad shared an adorable photo on his Facebook page that shows him changing the diaper of his two-week-old daughter, Max. The picture, which already has over 1.5 million likes, came with the caption: “One more down, thousands to go.” (Bonus: he’s seemingly doing it with a smile.)
This isn’t the first time Zuckerberg has set a praiseworthy precedent for fathers everywhere, especially those in the public eye. In July, he opened up about his wife’s three miscarriages, saying he hoped that sharing their story would help others who are also struggling with fertility. Then, in November, he announced he’d be taking a full two months of paternity leave to help care for his little one after the birth.
And of course, there was the open letter he wrote to his daughter earlier this month, in which he pledged that he and his wife Dr. Priscilla Chan would give 99% of their Facebook shares — currently worth $45 billion — to charity, in the hopes that Max would “grow up in a world better than ours today.”
He may have made one of the largest charitable pledges in history in the name of his daughter, but Zuckerberg is clearly showing that simple acts for his family, like changing a diaper or reading to his baby, might be just as important.
