“Priscilla and I are happy to share we’re expecting another baby girl,” he wrote on the post.

“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. I cannot think of a greater gift than having a sister and I’m so happy Max and our new child will have each other.”

Mark also shared a cute selection of throwback pics of himself and his wife with their siblings.

He added: “I grew up with three sisters and they taught me to learn from smart, strong women. They weren’t just my sisters but some of my best friends. They’ve gone on to write books, excel at performance, music, sports, cooking and their careers. They showed me how to compete and still laugh together afterwards.”

“Priscilla grew up with two sisters and they taught her the importance of family, caring for others and hard work. They supported each other as first generation college students and in their careers in medicine and business. They have so many inside jokes — the kind only siblings can understand.

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

After Maxima was conceived, following several miscarriages, the couple announced they were going to give away 99 per cent of their wealth.

They transferred 99 per cent of their Facebook shares to their Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, a philanthropy initiative “to improve the lives of all those coming into the world.”

The charity backed a Canadian artificial intelligence start-up as part of a mission to eradicate disease earlier this year.
