Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, are expecting—and not surprisingly, he shared his impending dad-to-be status on Facebook!

Zuckerberg made the baby announcement earlier today in a lengthy post, writing: "Priscilla and I have some exciting news: we're expecting a baby girl!"

Of course, Zuckerberg isn't the only celeb to open up about the struggle to conceive and the sadness of miscarriage. Model mama Jaime King also went public with her miscarriage and IVF experiences before having her first son, James.

It's sad when anyone who wants to conceive a child struggles to do so—and sadder still when the joy of a positive pregnancy test turns to sorrow when that pregnancy is lost. I feel so thankful and blessed that I never experienced a miscarriage, but I have many friends who did. It's good to know that there are people out there spreading the word that no one needs to feel alone if it happens to them, and that there is hope—something Zuckerberg and Chan are holding on to.

"Our good news is that our pregnancy is now far enough along that the risk of loss is very low and we are very hopeful," he continued in his post, adding, "We're looking forward to welcoming her into the world and sharing more soon when she's ready to come out and meet everyone!"
