日前,Mark Zuckerberg在Facebook宣佈小女兒出生了,並為她取名為「August」,Mark Zuckerberg一併上傳了一張一家四口的全家幅,相中Mark Zuckerberg抱著1歲半的大女兒Max,並把目光放在老婆Priscilla懷內的小女兒August,父愛滿瀉;而升格為姐姐的Max則對剛出生的妹妹相當好奇,捉著妹妹的小腳掌。

除了這張全家幅,Mark Zuckerberg和老婆更公開給女兒寫了一封信,表達出父母給孩子的寄語,以及Mark Zuckerberg對未來世界的期盼,字裏行間都充滿愛,亦很值得天下間的父母向下一代分享。全文如下:

"Priscilla and I are so happy to welcome our daughter August! We wrote her a letter about the world we hope she grows up in, and also hoping she doesn't grow up too fast.


Dear August,

Welcome to the world! Your mom and I are so excited to see who you will become.

When your sister was born, we wrote a letter about the world we hoped she and now you will grow up in -- a world with better education, fewer diseases, stronger communities, and greater equality. 




We wrote that with all the advances in science and technology, your generation should live dramatically better lives than ours, and we have a responsibility to do our part to make that happen. 


Even though headlines often focus on what's wrong, we still believe these positive trends will win out. We're optimists about your generation and the future.


But rather than write about growing up, we want to talk about childhood. The world can be a serious place. That's why it's important to make time to go outside and play.


You will be busy when you're older, so I hope you take time to smell all the flowers and put all the leaves you want in your bucket now. I hope you read your favorite Dr. Seuss books so many times you start inventing your own stories about the Vipper of Vipp. I hope you ride the carousel with Max until you've tamed every color horse. I hope you run as many laps around our living room and yard as you want. And then I hope you take a lot of naps. I hope you're a great sleeper. And I hope even in your dreams you can feel how much we love you.

你長大後會變得非常忙,所以我們希望現在的你能停下來低頭聞聞花香、把掉落的葉子收進你的小竹籃;我希望你能多讀幾遍你最愛的《Dr. Seuss》,然後自己發想一些關於Vipper of Vipp的故事;我希望你能和Max一起坐旋轉木馬,直到你能認清上面每一匹馬的顏色;我們希望你可以盡情在我們的客廳和院子裡跑圈圈;我希望你可以睡很多午覺,希望你成為愛睡的人。在你的睡夢中,希望你感受到我們有多愛你。

Childhood is magical. You only get to be a child once, so don't spend it worrying too much about the future. You've got us for that, and we'll do everything we possibly can to make sure the world is a better place for you and all children in your generation.


August, we love you so much and we're so excited to go on this adventure with you. We wish you a life of joy, love and the same hope you give us.


Mom and Dad"



Mark Zuckerberg被外界稱爲現代爸爸的好典範,今年當他宣佈即將再次成為爸爸時,Mark已經提前給自己放了 8星期的「侍產假」,專心陪伴老婆和小女兒的成長。

早於2015年底,大女兒Maxima Chan Zuckerberg出生時,Mark Zuckerberg夫婦亦寫過一封信給長女,更決定捐出99%的Facebook股權,創立慈善基金,推動教育、醫療、扶貧、平等等工作,盡力為下一代創造更美好的世界。
