Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla welcomed their daughter Max into the world on Tuesday.

“Priscilla and I are so happy to welcome our daughter Max into this world!” Zuckerberg announced on his Facebook page.

In the spirit of “Giving Tuesday," he and his wife Priscilla pledged to do their "small part" to make the world a better place for their baby girl by donating 99 percent of their Facebook shares to causes they believe in.

“We are committed to doing our small part to help create this world for all children. We will give 99% of our Facebook shares -- currently about $45 billion -- during our lives to join many others in improving this world for the next generation,” he said.

In a letter to their newborn, the Zuckerbergs discuss how they hope to create “a world better than ours today” by "advancing human potential and promoting equality" for the next generation of children.
