January 25, 2016 2:52 PM EST Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is finally ready to head back to work after his paternity leave. (He’s been busy sharing lots of photos of his two-month-old daughter, Max. Including her first swim.)
One of his concerns upon returning to work was:
What should I wear? Nope, just kidding, because Zuck literally wears the same thing every single day. He shared a photo of his closet to really drive the point home:
In 2014, Zuckerberg
explained why he wears the same gray T-shirt every day: “I really want to clear my life to make it so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community.” See Snapshots of Mark Zuckerberg’s Family January 8, 2015.

Facebook December 10, 2015. My next book for A Year of Books is Quantum Physics for Babies!
Just kidding. It's actually World Order by Henry Kissinger -- about foreign relations and how we can build peaceful relationships throughout the world. This is important for creating the world we all want for our children, and that's what I'm thinking about these days.
I am loving reading to Max. Next year looks like it's going to be A Year of Children's Books! — reading to Max with Priscilla Chan. Facebook December 8, 2015
Full of joy with little Max. Facebook November 30, 2015 With Max and Priscilla Chan. Facebook November 28, 2015 In the spirit of this holiday weekend, I want to share the most joyful photo of Beast jumping I've ever seen.

We have two goals:

Facebook July 31, 2015 Priscilla and I have some exciting news: we're expecting a baby girl!
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 want to share one experience to start. We've been trying to have a child for a couple of years and have had three miscarriages along the way.
You feel so hopeful when you learn you're going to have a child. 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. Most people don't discuss miscarriages because you worry your problems will distance you or reflect upon you -- as if you're defective or did something to cause this. So you struggle on your own.
In today's open and connected world, discussing these issues doesn't distance us; it brings us together. It creates understanding and tolerance, and it gives us hope.
When we started talking to our friends, we realized how frequently this happened -- that many people we knew had similar issues and that nearly all had healthy children after all.
We hope that sharing our experience will give more people the same hope we felt and will help more people feel comfortable sharing their stories as well.
Our good news is that our pregnancy is now far enough along that the risk of loss is very low and we are very hopeful.
Cilla and our child are both healthy, I'm extremely excited to meet her and our dog Beast has no idea what's coming. In our ultrasound, she even gave me a thumbs up "like" with her hand, so I'm already convinced she takes after me.
We're looking forward to welcoming her into the world and sharing more soon when she's ready to come out and meet everyone! — with Priscilla Chan. Facebook May 10, 2015 Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers in our community!
You've taught us, inspired us, lost sleep caring for us and often worked multiple jobs supporting us. You've been our emotional rock in hard times and our source of encouragement to achieve more. You've shared your life with us. And today, we share our love and gratitude with you. Thank you for all you do.
And to my mom: I can't express enough appreciation for your sacrifices, encouragement and support on this journey to connect the world.
Happy Mother's Day. — with Edward Zuckerberg, Karen Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan. Facebook December 26, 2014 With Priscilla Chan.
