Mark Zuckerberg shares swimming photo of baby

Mark Zuckerberg has posted a picture of his daughter’s first swimming lesson


The Facebook founder shared the photo of his two month old baby, Maxima, floating as he holds her head in water.

He captioned the photo “Max’s first swim. She loves it!”

The post picked up more than two million likes and has been shared nearly 15,000 times.

Zuckerberg and his wife Dr Priscilla Chan, who married in 2012, have been sharing plenty of pictures of their happy family, since Maxima’s birth in December.

The couple have also posted snaps celebrating her first New Year’s Eve and posing with Star Wars merchandise, including a baby light sabre.

Earlier this month, the 31-year-old first-time daddy, who has taken two months of paternity leave, took Max for her first vaccines.

Ahead of the birth, Zuckerberg announced that he would be taking time off work to help look after his first child.

It is understood he is expected back at work imminently.

In the US, companies do not have a legal obligation to offer paternity leave for fathers but at Facebook all employees receive four months paid leave.

In the UK, parents can now split up to 50 weeks of leave to look after their child, giving dads more than two weeks to bond with their newborn.

Marking the arrival of their daughter, the Zuckerberg’s also revealed that they would be giving away 99 per cent of their Facebook shares within their lifetime.

They made a time capsule video promising to try to make the world a better place for Maxima and all children.
