Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, are expecting their second child, the couple announced on Facebook Thursday. Like one-year-old daughter Max, the forthcoming Zuck will also be a baby girl:

After our difficult experience having Max, we weren’t sure what to expect or whether we’d be able to have another child. When Priscilla and I first found out she was pregnant again, our first hope was that the child would be healthy. My next hope was that it would be a girl.

The CEO of the 33 percent female company said that he and Priscilla hoped Max would have a sister, as having sisters was instrumental in shaping both of their lives.

“We are all better people because of the the strong women in our lives — sisters, mothers and friends,” wrote Zuckerberg. “We can’t wait to welcome our new little one and do our best to raise another strong woman.”

According to his post, their unborn daughter is still in a pre-alpha build stage, but is expected to roll out soon.
