Mark Zuckerberg is a doting dad like any other, and the Facebook CEO has been keen to share all of his little girl’s biggest milestones with his followers on the social platform. On Sunday (Jan. 24), the proud father showed “Max’s first swim” with the sweet two-month-old baby floating in the water. “She loves it!” said the 31-year-old father.
Max looks adorable in a blue-and white-striped swimsuit, with a red rose on the front, as she floats on her back, her daddy supporting her head. The photo was a big hit with Mark’s fans, and has already racked up nearly two million likes, with 37,000 comments.
Mark has shared a number of sweet moments with Max ever since she was born in November 2015 – including a photo of him changing a diaper, one of him and his wife, Priscilla Chan, reading to their daughter, and an adorable photo of Max dressed up in a Star Wars Jedi cloak, which he captioned, “The force is strong with this one.”
Mark and Priscilla are clearly besotted with their little girl – so much so that they have pledged to give away 99 per cent of their US$46 billion Facebook stock to charity in her honour. Mark announced their plans in a touching open letter to their daughter, posted on Dec. 1.

“Your mother and I don’t yet have the words to describe the hope you give us for the future,” it read. “Your new life is full of promise and we hope you will be happy and healthy so you can explore it fully. You’ve already given us a reason to reflect on the world we hope you live in…
“Max, we love you and feel a great responsibility to leave the world a better place for you and all children. We wish you a life filled with the same love, hope and joy you give us. We can’t wait to see what you bring to this world.”
