Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg along with his wife Priscilla Chan welcomed their second daughter into the world on Monday and have named the new baby girl 'August' and shared the news with a post on Facebook.

The second-time parents Mark and Priscilla wrote a letter to their baby daughter August, as they had done when their elder daughter Maxima was born in 2015. While the letter to Maxima, called Max by her parents, was about building a better future by the time she grew up, in the letter to August, Mark and Priscilla talk about enjoying childhood.

"When your sister was born, we wrote a letter about the world we hoped she and now you will grow up in -- a world with better education, fewer diseases, stronger communities, and greater equality," said the letter.

"But rather than write about growing up, we want to talk about childhood. The world can be a serious place. That`s why it`s important to make time to go outside and play," the letter continued.

"You only get to be a child once, so don`t spend it worrying too much about the future," said the letter.

The couple has already made efforts to improve the life of future generations through the 'Zuckerberg Chan Initiative' where the couple has pledged billions of dollars towards improving the world for the children's generations.
