There's a new addition to Facebook royalty. 

Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg announced via Facebook the birth of their second daughter, August. In true Facebook fashion, the parents shared an adorable photo of August with her big sister Max. 

Zuckerberg welcomed August to the Facebook world with a life event and a letter, focused on childhood and raising her in the world today. 

In the letter, he tells August "The world can be a serious place. That's why it's important to make time to go outside and play. You will be busy when you're older, so I hope you take time to smell all the flowers and put all the leaves you want in your bucket now."

Zuckerberg will be taking two months (not consecutively) paternity leave this year. His company allows their employees to take up to four months off.
