Among the 200 celebrities, moguls and other big-name guests who attended the Chinese state dinner Friday at the White House were Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, wife Dr. Priscilla Chan — and their growing baby girl!

The couple announced they were expecting their first child in a July 31 post on (where else?) Facebook.


In that post, Zuckerberg revealed, “We’ve been trying to have a child for a couple of years and have had three miscarriages along the way.”

“It’s a lonely experience,” he said, adding that he hoped revealing their own struggles “will give more people the same hope we felt and will help more people feel comfortable sharing their stories as well.”

“Cilla and our child are both healthy,” Zuckerberg said in his post. “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.”
