Facebook founder and CEO, an overnight billionaire, Mark Zuckerberg has married his longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan. The day after Facebook‘s successful IPO, the couple have made it official. Mark has, indeed, put a ring on it. What a wonderful week for the Harvard drop-out…
Zuckerberg and 27-year-old Priscilla tied the knot at a small ceremony at his Palo Alto, Calif., home Saturday, capping a busy week for the couple.
The two met while studying at Harvard around 2004. It was the same year as when Zuckerberg came up with the Facebook concept.
A Facebook spokeswoman said Zuckerberg designed the ring featuring “a very simple ruby” that he designed himself. The ceremony took place in Zuckerberg’s backyard before fewer than 100 guests, who all thought they were there to celebrate Chan’s graduation.
Even after the IPO, Zuckerberg remains Facebook’s single largest shareholder, with 503.6 million shares. And he controls the company with 56 percent of its voting stock.
Congrats to the couple. We “like!”
