Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg took to his official page to announce that he and his wife Priscilla Chan are expecting a baby. They have been trying for a baby since a couple of years and have had three miscarriages already.

We want to share one experience to start. We’ve been trying to have a child for a couple of years and have had three miscarriages along the way.
— Mark Zuckerberg.

So this is surely a hope for the couple.

You feel so hopeful when you learn you’re going to have a child. You start imagining who they’ll become and dreaming of hopes for their future. You start making plans, and then they’re gone. It’s a lonely experience. Most people don’t discuss miscarriages because you worry your problems will distance you or reflect upon you -- as if you’re defective or did something to cause this. So you struggle on your own.
— Mark Zuckerberg.

Though he has not shared when is the baby expected, he gave an update about the pregnancy. Chan, who finished her residency on July 1, is healthy till now.

Cilla and our child are both healthy, I’m extremely excited to meet her and our dog Beast has no idea what’s coming. In our ultrasound, she even gave me a thumbs up “like” with her hand, so I’m already convinced she takes after me.
— Mark Zuckerberg.
