Co-founder and CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, and his wife, Dr. Priscilla Chan, celebrated 20 years of being together in a post shared on Zuckerberg’s Instagram.
“20 years since our first date. We met at a going away party my friends threw for me in college when they thought I was about to get kicked out of school. I asked her out but told her we’d need to go out soon since I might only have a few days left. Later on I started Facebook, we got married, and now have three wonderful girls. What a wild ride.”
Mark Zuckerberg first crossed paths with his future wife Priscilla Chan at a college party, meeting while waiting in line for the bathroom. In 2010, the couple took the next step by moving in together. They later wed in a secret backyard ceremony and went on to welcome two daughters.
Through all of life’s ups and downs, the couple’s love and support has never faltered. As the Facebook founder’s fame grew, Chan simply treated him as the man she fell in love with. Their romance blossomed from those early Harvard days into marriage and starting a family.
In 2022, they announced the arrival of their third child, daughter Aurelia. Zuckerberg cherishes his role as a “girl dad” but also recognizes his public status could impact his children’s view of him. His family motivates him to create positive change, as he wants his daughters to someday say he made the world better.
From the beginnings of their relationship to their philanthropic efforts and parenting journey, Zuckerberg and Chan’s connection has only strengthened over time. Their steadfast partnership shows that through fame and normal life challenges alike, their love endures.
