Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan have welcomed baby girl Max.
Max Zuckerberg was born last week, although her birth was only made public on December 1.
Mark Zuckerberg has made the announcement in a Facebook post, accompanied by a Facebook Notes letter to the new little lady in his life.
In the letter, Mark Zuckerberg writes that he and Priscilla Chan will donate 99% of their Facebook shares – currently about $45 billion – over the course of their lives “to join many others in improving this world for the next generation”.
The new parents have also launched the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, which has the broad mission of “advancing human potential” but will focus specifically on personalizing learning, curing disease, connecting people, and building strong communities.
In the letter, Mark Zuckerberg also laid out his vision for the world he hopes Max will inherit, a world in which Facebook plays an increasingly central role.
The letter covers Mark Zuckerberg’s passion for giving the world access to the Internet and the investments he and Priscilla Chan have made in education, and it paints a rosy view of a world that has felt utterly grim:
“While headlines often focus on what’s wrong, in many ways the world is getting better. Health is improving. Poverty is shrinking. Knowledge is growing. People are connecting. Technological progress in every field means your life should be dramatically better than ours today. We will do our part to make this happen, not only because we love you, but also because we have a moral responsibility to all children in the next generation.”
Nia Gonzalez is the mother of Chris Brown’s alleged 9-month-old baby.
“Chris and Nia took a blood test last week, and that Chris is her daughter’s father,”MediaTakeOut.com reported.
The website also claims that Nia Gonzalez, 31, is an “Instagram model” who has been dating rappers and “boppin around Houston since the 1990s.”
Nia Gonzalez is a Houston-native who also goes by Nia Amey and has known Chris Brown, 25, for a few years.
Earlier reports had indicated that Nia Riley, star of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop, was Chris Brown’s baby mama, but she has a daughter with rapper Soulja Boy.
As reports about Chris Brown fathering Nia Gonzalez’s baby emerged, a man going by “@Royalty_Yaye_Bah,” posted on Instagram: “The Saddest Day of My Life This lil girl meant the world To Me I been There Through Everything I was told This Was My child How Can This Be happening A Man Just Steps in and Take Over What I Built What I lived for I Dedicated My Whole Life To This Family Now Everything Is Gone..Y Did this happen To Me Now I lost My Lil Girl For Good?”
The man later deleted the post. His Instagram page was full of pictures of him with Nia Gonzalez and her baby.
According to an Instagram post from Chris Brown’s most recent girlfriend Karrueche Tran, she and Nia Gonzalez were at a Las Vegas party together back in May 2013. On his Instagram page, Chris Brown also posted pics from the same party.
As news of Chris Brown’s fatherhood broke, Karrueche Tran, 26, tweeted the above message, all but confirmed that Chris is a dad.
Chris Brown had been linked to Karrueche Tran for four years. The couple appeared at New York’s Fashion Week in February but more recently, they seemed to be on the outs with Chris Brown accusing Karrueche Tran of “going on dates” with his eternal rival Drake.
On her Model Mayhem profile, Nia Gonzalez says she is a nursing student and a “very outgoing person”. She adds that she has a passion for photography.
According to Hip Hollywood, Nia Gonzalez is a friend of singer Christina Milian’s and is signed to her ex-fiance’s, Jas Prince’s, record label, Y.E.M.G.
Jas Prince and Nia Gonzalez appeared in an Instagram pic together over Christmas. On the day that the Chris Brown story broke, Christina Milian tweeted: “Besties Be Like… #WeAintWorried.”
Jenna Fischer has announced she became a mother for the second time after secretly welcoming a new baby last month.
Jenna Fischer and her husband Lee Kirk welcomed their second baby on May 25
Jenna Fischer and her husband Lee Kirk have confirmed to E! News that their second child was born in May.
“We are pleased to announce the birth of our daughter Harper Marie Kirk. Born May 25, 2014. The family is doing great. We are happy, healthy and sleepy,” a joint statement issued by the new parents reads.
Jenna Fischer and Lee Kirk married in 2010 and are already parents to son Weston, who was born in 2011.
Penelope Cruz has welcomed her second child – a baby daughter – on the same day as the Royal baby.
Penelope Cruz, 39, already has a two-year-old son, Leonardo, with husband Javier Bardem.
Penelope Cruz has welcomed her second child, a baby daughter
While the Royals are expected to let the public know about their child, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are notoriously private and kept the details of their first child under wraps as long as possible.
Penelope Cruz recently said of her children: “I want my son and my kids – if I have more – to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible. The fact that his father and I have chosen to do the work we do doesn’t give anybody the right to invade our privacy.”
The actress was last seen just a couple of days ago when she looked ready to pop.
On Saturday she even attended a concert in Madrid despite looking heavily pregnant and so close to her due date.
Ahead of the gig Penelope Cruz was seen walking along with Javier Bardem as they headed for a bite to eat while her huge bump hung over her jeans.
The actress, who was thought to be due to give birth back in June, then looked as if she was ready to welcome her second child at any moment as her stomach swelled against her T-shirt at the Los Veranos de la Villa Music Festival.
Penelope Cruz and husband Javier Bardem – who had been friends for years – started dating in 2007 and married in early July 2010 in an intimate ceremony at a friend’s home in the Bahamas.
Kate Middleton’s uncle, Gary Goldsmith, has predicted his niece is about to give birth to a baby girl – and when she does, he says it will be “unbelievable” for the female firstborn to make history.
“My suspicion is that they’re having a baby girl,” he told the Mirror.
“But, of course, I don’t know that for fact. I believe Kate and William have kept the gender of their child a secret to everyone but themselves.”
Gary Goldsmith said that it would be “brilliant” if Prince William and Kate Middleton’s firstborn was a girl – because thanks to the recent amendment to British succession law allowing female firstborn children to rule, a girl baby would one day be Queen.
“It would be brilliant, wouldn’t it, if they do have a little girl? To have one of my family, my niece, making history will be absolutely unbelievable.”
Gary Goldsmith went onto praise Kate Middleton and Prince William as a “very modern couple”, saying he believes William will be “as hands-on as Kate” with the parenting.
“That’s the genius of it,” he said.
“They’re modernizing the Royal Family and doing a wonderful job of it.”
The so-called King Of Fun, known to Kate, Pippa and James Middleton as Uncle G – has already been looking around for a baby gift for the new arrival – and has his eye on a £70,000 ($100,000) rocking elephant he spotted in Royal Warranted jewellers Asprey.

“I went to Asprey’s recently and saw an amazing, huge elephant rocker, like Dumbo, for about £70,000,” he told the Mirror.
“Or there was a chest of some first edition Tintins.
“But because family is so important to Kate – she is incredibly close to Carole and Pip – I would rather get something personal and more meaningful. Although I did like that elephant…!”
But the 48-year-old businessman brother of Carole Middleton has another trick up his sleeve too.
The self-made millionaire, who made his £30 million ($50 million) fortune in investments and recruitment consultancy, has said he plans to buy the baby shares in Chelsea football club – something that may not go down too well with William, who is a die-hard Aston Villa fan.
Gary Goldsmith, who sold his shares in recruitment consultancy firm SThree PLC for £17 million ($27 million) eight years ago, told The Sun: “I’m going to get exactly what I get for all my mates’ babies.
“As a die-hard Chelsea fan, I always get the baby Chelsea shares. Then, when it’s a bit older, I get it a full tiny Chelsea strip.
“It’s brilliant, it drives the parents mad. I love turning their kid into a true blue Chelsea fan. And Prince William is an Aston Villa fan. I thought it could be hilarious. I mean, what on earth can you get for a baby like theirs? That baby is going to have everything it could ever want. So Chelsea shares are perfect. I think William will find it funny.”
Gary Goldsmith, who was at the Royal Wedding in 2011 despite being stung months earlier in an undercover operation that revealed him to be in the possession of cocaine, says he is under no illusion he could be handed the honor of godparent to the Royal firstborn.
“I would hope to be at the christening, but I’m sure I won’t be a godfather!”
Kim Kardashian’s labor was reportedly the worst ordeal of her life.
Warned by doctors that she was most likely suffering from the life-threatening condition preeclampsia, Kim Kardashian was forced to deal with going into premature labor on Friday night to save the life of her baby girl.
With her “blood pressure skyrocketing” and “the baby in distress” according to Us Weekly, the pampered doyenne of reality TV was forced to grit her teeth and get on with the delivery.
Kim Kardashian, 32, was so brave in dealing with the terrifying ordeal that her often absent beau, Kanye West, 36, is now desperate to marry her as soon as possible.
“They’ll start planning their next project, a wedding, sooner rather than later,” a source told People magazine.
“He definitely wants to marry her, he hasn’t left her side.”
Kim Kardashian’s friend Robin Antin, with whom she spent the last few days of her pregnancy relaxing in the sunshine, offered an insight into how Kim’s stoic and tenacious behavior this weekend impressed the often lugubrious rapper.
Kim Kardashian’s labor was reportedly the worst ordeal of her life
“This was a lot to go through,” the founder of music group GRL told the magazine.
“I’m sure she was exhausted but she handled it like a pro.”
Doctors have warned Kim Kardashian – who is desperate to start exercising in order to get her body back into shape – that she needs to watch her blood pressure as hypertension can be a real issue after these kinds of emergencies.
A source told Us Weekly: “After discharge she should follow up with blood pressure checks. The condition can cause problems after birth.”
However, Kanye West will be by Kim Kardashian’s side constantly from now on to monitor the health of his partner and their baby: “For the next two weeks, Kim wants Kanye around 24/7,” the mole continued.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will also employ the services of a nurse for a year, according to Us Weekly who report that the helper will wear “a custom-made black-and-white uniform”.
“Kim is a bit freaked out, but the baby’s breathing is fine,” the magazine continued.
Kabye West made sure he was front and centre for the birth of his first child.
The rapper had been scheduled to make an appearance at a release party in Los Angeles for his new album Yeezus, which is due out on Tuesday.
But Kim Kardashian had started feeling ill Friday and, after having contractions, admitted herself to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center near Beverly Hills five weeks ahead of her scheduled due date, causing Kanye West to skip out on his own party.
Kim Kardashian gave birth to a healthy baby girl on Saturday, but the latest episode of her reality TV show proved her pregnancy was far from easy.
Kim Kardashian, 32, was rushed to the hospital after experiencing severe stomach pain in Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Viewers saw distraught Kim Kardashian reduced to tears and in agony as she jetted into Los Angeles amid fears she had appendicitis.
And the pain was so extreme Kim Kardashian even said she did not want to go through another pregnancy.
“It was a really painful flight, it hurt so badly. I can hardly walk,” a tearful Kim told mother Kris Jenner on the show.
“I just don’t understand it just hurts so bad, it kills,” said Kim Kardashian as she was examined by her doctor.
“It feels like I am in labor. Why is this happening to me? I hate it, I can never do this again.”

But all was well as the doctor found the baby with a healthy heartbeat.
“I am just so relieved the baby is okay,” said Kim Kardashian.
After blood tests doctors told Kim Kardashian that she could have appendicitis and that she might face a risky operation.
But a second battery of tests revealed that she just had a stomach infection.
“For her to be in this much pain scares me so much. I want her to relish this pregnancy it is the most amazing experience and I feel she is just not having that yet,” said Kris Jenner.
“If labor is worse than this I will hang myself, I will literally take a knife and s**t my throat” said Kim Kardashian.
In the episode Kim Kardashian finally managed to get her deposition done for her divorce to Kris Humphries.
“My divorce has definitely been dragging on for a while now and Kanye and I want it to be done by the time the baby gets here,” admitted a frustrated Kim Kardashian.
“I really do not want to be married while I give birth to our baby. I have been trying to get it done for a year-and-a-half now.
“I am just so bothered and sad over this situation.”
Before her deposition Kim Kardashian revealed she still cares about Kris Humphries, despite not talking him for so long.
“At our lunch break I am going to want to talk to him and say: <<It literally never had to get like this>>,” said Kim Kardashian.
“I like, loved you, I still do, you were a big part of my life. But you know we are not meant to be together, you weren’t happy, I wasn’t happy, we should have never rushed into it. It doesn’t mean we can’t like be friends.”
“I have not spoken to Kris for a year and a half, I am anxious see Kris, I hope this will maybe give him and I an understanding of his feelings and my feelings as we have not spoken in so long.”
But Kris Humphries did not show up and Kim Kardashian was “relieved” she was moving forward with the divorce.
Kim Kardashian gave birth to a healthy girl on June 15 and now it’s time for the big question – what name did they give this little girl?!
Kim Kardashian, 32, and Kanye West, 36, became first-time parents on Saturday when she delivered a healthy baby girl. It appears that the little one is a splitting image of Kim Kardashian, but what did they name her?
Kim Kardashian has reportedly told friends that her baby girl’s name will start with a K
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s network E! confirmed the birth of the baby girl, and added that though the couple has not released the name of their daughter just yet, Kim Kardashian has reportedly told friends that the girl’s name “will start with a K”.
That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise – every Kardashian girl in the family has names that begin with that letter.
As for the baby’s middle name, it could be Donda in honor of Kanye West’s late mother, People reports. This seems like a very sweet arrangement – it keeps the Kardashian legacy going while also remembering Kanye West’s mother, who he was extremely close with, in a tasteful, heartwarming way.
After feeling sick late on June 14, Kim Kardashian rushed to the hospital and had the baby early in the morning, according to Us Weekly. The baby reportedly weighed in at just under 5 pounds, and both mother and child are doing well after the birth.
Friends and family flocked to Cedars-Sinai Hospital, where Kim Kardashian delivered the baby, to celebrate the big day. Kim Kardashian’s best friend Brittny Gastineau was seen entering the medical center with her mother. And on June 16, her other good friend Jonathan Cheban was spotted buying a beautiful bouquet of flowers, likely for Kim Kardashian, according to Mail Online. The bouquet was a gorgeous mix of pink roses and peonies.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s new baby daughter is said to pay a strong resemblance to her striking brunette mother and looks less like her rapper father.
A source close to the couple has revealed that the little girl is truly a Kardashian Mini-Me.
“She has dark hair,” the source revealed to E News.

“She looks just like Kim.”
The news of the baby bearing a striking resemblance to Kim will no doubt delight the Kardashian clan and their army of fans around the world.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby weighed in at just “under five pounds” at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles this morning and was almost one month premature.
It’s understood that the little girl is perfectly healthy but that no name has been released yet although the same source confirmed to E that it will start with a K.
The baby was delivered at the same hospital where her sister Kourtney Kardashian and her partner Scott Disick had their two children Penelope and Mason.
Proud father Kanye West, who skipped out on a listening party for his latest album in Los Angeles on Friday, was at Kim Kardashian’s side during the birth when the baby was delivered naturally and without any complications.
An insider told UsMagazine.com that Kanye West wouldn’t have missed the arrival of their first child for anything, saying: “Of course, Kanye was there with Kim when she went to the hospital and had the baby.
“She started to feel sick late last night [Friday] and was having contractions.”
Kim Kardashian’s baby girl due date could be June 18, earlier than July as has been predicted, as Kanye West made a cryptic comment on his Twitter account mentioning that day.
Kanye West, 35, has returned to Twitter after a lengthy hiatus to upload just one, tantalizingly cryptic comment that reads just: “June Eighteen.”
The rapper deleted his entire Twitter presence back in October 2012, so this new portentous tweet must herald something big in the offing.
There’s also rampant speculation that the date could be related to the long-awaited release of Kanye West’s new album, Cruel Summer.
Kim Kardashian’s baby girl due date could be June 18
It could also mean a tour is in the works.
But the most likely explanation is that Kanye West has been also working on a new fashion line in Paris – as well as putting the final touches to Cruel Summer – and it will debut on that date.
It all fits in, Kanye West’s British design partner Katie Eary, an up-and-coming designer who graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in 2008, is to show on June 18th at London Fashion Week’s Menswear viewing.
The date and clues all point to a Kanye West collection, she describes him as her “muse” being unveiled in London that day.
It could also explain why Kanye West has needed to be in Paris to record his new album because he could well really need to be there to work on this collection with Katie Eary.
But it being a due date cannot be ruled out.
Kim Kardashian said on the Today show in January that her and Kanye West’s bundle of joy is due in July, but there are suggestions, during a baby shower for fashion stylist Monica Rose at Bagatelle LA, Kim was overheard saying she’s due in mid-June.
Though if Kim Kardashian were trying to keep this secret, it’s unlikely Kanye West would announce it, even cryptically.
Famously discreet Kate Middleton may have dropped her guard a little on a walkabout yesterday.
According to one member of the crowd, Kate Middleton, who is five months pregnant, appeared to hint she might be having a baby girl.
Sandra Cook, 67, was among the 2,000 wellwishers who greeted Kate Middleton on her visit to Grimsby.
She said: “The lady next to me gave her a teddy bear and I distinctly heard her say <<Thank you, I will take that for my d….>>.
“Then she stopped herself. I leant over and said to her: <<You were going to say daughter, weren’t you?>> She said: <<No, we don’t know!>> I said: <<Oh, I think you do>> to which she replied: <<We’re not telling!>>
“I have been here since 10 a.m. and it was worth every cold minute of the wait to see her. She is just beautiful and so lovely and friendly.”

Diana Burton, 41, who gave the Duchess a teddy, was too shell-shocked to recall the conversation. But Sandra Cook, who works in a local charity shop and lives in Grimsby, was adamant about what she heard.
“I only hope that she doesn’t now give birth to a boy or I’m going to look pretty stupid,” she said.
“But she definitely said <<d——>>.”
St James’s Palace did not comment on the matter, although royal sources insisted Kate Middleton and Prince William had not yet found out the sex of the baby, which is due in July.
