Mark Zuckerberg Shares 'Fierce' Photo Of Pregnant Wife Priscilla Chan

The couple is expecting a baby girl.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg shared a touching photo of himself and his wife, Priscilla Chan, who is pregnant with the couple's first child.

This is a stunning photo of Priscilla. I love her expression: intense yet kind, fierce yet loving, leading yet always supporting others. Thank you to Annie Leibovitz for capturing her spirit so beautifully.

The couple announced the pregnancy in July and opened up about the three miscarriages Chan has had in the past.

"You feel so hopeful when you learn you're going to have a child," Zuckerberg wrote. "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."

Zuckerberg and Chan met at Harvard, and tied the knot in 2012.
