Mark Zuckerberg, Priscilla Chan, Daughter Max


Mark Zuckerberg cuddles his and wife Priscilla Chan's daughter Max and demonstrates his Mandarin Chinese in the first public video featuring their baby girl.

The clip was posted Saturday on the 31-year-old Facebook CEO's Facebook page. Zuckerberg appears with both his ladies and wishes fans a happy Chinese New Year. The Year of the Monkey begins on Sunday and lasts until Jan 27, 2017.

"Priscilla and I are very excited to celebrate our first Lunar New Year with Max," he says.

The baby lets out a little cry during the video, emitting laughs from her parents. Zuckerberg also reveals Max's new Chinese name: Chen Mingyu.

"Happy new year, happy new year," he coos to the child, cuddling her and making a kissing sound.

"You think my Chinese is bad?" he later asks her.

Happy New Year!

Happy Lunar New Year from Priscilla, Max and me! In the Year of the Monkey, I hope you and all your loved ones find happiness, health and good fortune.

Zuckerberg and his wife, 30, announced Max's arrival on Dec. 1. She is the couple's first child. Zuckerberg has since shared several photos of Max on Facebook.

In 2014, Zuckerberg gave a Q&A in Mandarin Chinese in front of students at Tsinghua University in Beijing. He said he began studying the language in 2010 because Chan comes from a Chinese background and because he likes Chinese culture and taking on challenges.
