Facebook CEO Zuckerberg and wife expecting a baby.

“This will be a new chapter in our lives,” he wrote. “We’ve already been so fortunate for the opportunity to touch people’s lives around the world — Cilla as a doctor and educator, and me through this community and philanthropy. The announcement included a photo of Zuck and a newly-pregnant Chan—but the true star of the photo was clearly their dog: Yes, that ridiculous-looking beast is named Beast, and he’s not a mop.

It has taken steps to make it easier for young employees to delay having children, and Facebook’s COO Sheryl Sandberg has become a spokesperson for how women – and men – handle their professional and family responsibilities. Now we’ll focus on making the world a better place for our child and the next generation.” In addition to sharing the happy news, Zuckerberg also wrote his note to break the silence around miscarriages, a tragedy that many couples deal with in silence compared to the pregnancy and birth announcements so common to Facebook. Zuckerberg also shared the news that he and his wife have been trying for a couple years to get pregnant, and suffered three miscarriages along the way. “You feel so hopeful when you learn you’re going to have a child. Are grey onesies next? “When we started talking to our friends, we realized how frequently this happened — that many people we knew had similar issues and that nearly all had healthy children after all,” Zuckerberg wrote. “We hope that sharing our experience will give more people the same hope we felt and will help more people feel comfortable sharing their stories as well.” Zuckerberg announced the pregnancy—and also started an honest conversation about miscarriages—but lots of people couldn’t help but turn their attention to Beast: Beast, who is a type of Hungarian sheepdog known as a Puli, has his own Facebook page, where he is listed as a public figure.

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.
