The billionaire CEO made the reveal to his social media platform, writing:
"Priscilla and I have some exciting news: we're expecting a baby girl! We've been trying to have a child for a couple of years and have had three miscarriages along the way. You feel so hopeful when you learn you're going to have a child. You start imagining who they'll become and dreaming of hopes for their future. You start making plans, and then they're gone. It's a lonely experience. Most people don't discuss miscarriages because you worry your problems will distance you or reflect upon you—as if you're defective or did something to cause this. So you struggle on your own."
This couple has been through so much, especially with the three miscarriages, and we're just so excited for them to find joy on this journey together.
Mark continued to share his hopefulness, confessing:
"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. Cilla and our child are both healthy, I'm extremely excited to meet her and our dog Beast has no idea what's coming. In our ultrasound, she even gave me a thumbs up "like" with her hand, so I'm already convinced she takes after me. We're looking forward to welcoming her into the world and sharing more soon when she's ready to come out and meet everyone!"
We're wishing all good things for this happy family!
Hopefully it won't be too long before we get more updates, but it's good to know the baby is healthy and so is Priscilla!
