Being the youngest millionaire at the age of 26, having a sense of humor and a frugal lifestyle, Mark Zuckerburg is many girls’ celebrity crushes. However, the only girl who owns his heart is Priscilla Chan, whose parents are Vietnamese-Chinese. Before settling down in the US, her family had lived for a long time in Vietnam.
Their romance has begun since they were in Harvard University
They have first met each other at the restroom corridor during a Harvard party, since then they started to know more about each other.
According to Priscilla, she had met him for the first time when they had been in the lining for the washroom. She was totally impressed by how quickly he got in and out of the restroom. He was so attracted to her that he soon flirted her.
They had also had a tough time because Mark wanted to invent a website for their own puppies, but Priscilla thought it was ostentatious. In the end, their fight couldn’t last long as they love each other a lot.
Before deciding to live together, Chan asked Mark to sign an agreement “a date a week, at least 100 minutes each day without Facebook”.
Their 9-year-love story has led to a happy wedding at the backyard of Mark’s house with more than 100 guests on the 19th of May 2012 – 5 days after Chan’s graduation and Facebook’s stock market flotation.
The wedding was a surprise for all guests. Everyone only thought it was a party for Chan’s graduation except for the bride and groom. On that day, Mark gave Chan a ruby ring designed by himself.
Many people believe that Chan is a lucky girl, but actually, it is Mark that considers himself as the lucky guy to meet her. She is friendly, nice and hard-working. Her studying result and social skill are the things he cannot follow.
He said people usually joked that he created Facebook to chase girls, but in fact, he only has Chan, the only one he dates.
On November 14th, 2014, Mark shared on his Facebook “I met an amazing girl on this day exactly 11 years ago. Priscilla, thank you for keeping me grounded and for helping me keep my sense of wonder about the world as we grow together”.
Chan is friendly, generous, intelligent and perceptive. She’s often eager to Facebook business, stood by Mark in every court, negotiation, and interviews.
Chan always appreciates the knowledge, that’s why the couple decided to donate most of their fortune to the education.
Talking about his wife, Mark can’t stop complimenting on her. He thought he is the lucky guy to get her, a warm-hearted person, who is beside him from the beginning of the Facebook foundation. He said with pride: “Behind every successful man, there is always a woman.”
The couple often spends time doing charity. Mark told that he took inspiration and relief from his wife’s view. Pris inspires Mark to promote organs donation and other humanity initiatives
On the 31st of July 2015, Mark gladly announced that he and Priscilla were expecting a baby girl. He wrote: “ This will be a new chapter in our lives. 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. Now we’ll focus on making the world a better place for our child and the next generation.” “We’ve been trying to have a child for a couple of years and have had three miscarriages along the way”
On the 1st of December 2015, Mark was excited to welcome the arrival of a new member in his family – Maxima Chan-Zuckerberg.
At the same time, Mark wrote a letter to his baby girl, especially, he decided to donate 45 milliard dollar (99% of his Facebook shares) for the sake of the future generation.
In the letter to their new-born daughter, the Facebook owner wrote :” Dear Max,
Your mother and I don’t yet have the words to describe the hope you give us for the future. Your new life is full of promise, and we hope you will be happy and healthy so you can explore it fully. You’ve already given us a reason to reflect on the world we hope you live in. Like all parents, we want you to grow up in a world better than ours today.”
