Satisfied customer at the Zuckerberg House. The billionaire becomes a father for the third time. The Facebook founder pays a lot to protect his small family.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan are expecting another baby. On Instagram, the entrepreneur announced his partner’s pregnancy with an adorable photo of a couple, showing the two sitting side by side, dressed in casual sweaters, while he gently puts his hand on her stomach.
“Lots of love,” Zuckerberg wrote with the message. He is pleased to announce that their two daughters Maxima and August are “getting a new sister next year”. It is the third child of the two. Zuckerberg and Chan have been married since 2012. Daughter Maxima was born in 2015, her sister August was born two years later.
Zuckerberg pays a lot to protect his small family. He spends more money on it than any other tech boss in the world. As the Meta boss told the SEC, his costs exceeded $26.8 million in 2021 alone, the equivalent of nearly $25 million.
Zuckerberg’s security measures include precautions due to the coronavirus pandemic and private air transportation, which was paid $1.6 million last year alone. However, the “increasing hostility” towards Facebook and Meta is also said to be responsible for the rise in costs. Meta notes on the file that “negative feelings about our company are directly related to, and often transfer to, Mr. Zuckerberg.”
According to a Bloomberg report, other tech bosses spend only a fraction of this amount on security measures. Google CEO Sundar Pichai reportedly has just $4.3 million for his security, followed by Snapchat’s Evan Spiegel with $2.3 million and Larry Ellison, founder of the software group Oracle, with $2.2 million. Amazon boss Jeff Bezos spends just $1.6 million on his security.
