In a surprise move, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has married his long-term girlfriend Pricilla Chan in a secret ceremony only one day after the social network went public, making the tech wizard a billionaire in the process.
Unsurprisingly, Zuckerberg and his new wife announced their marriage by posting a message on Facebook and changing their relationship status to ‘married’ and sharing a photo.
The couple met while studying at Harvard and have been together for nine years, but failed to reveal their engagement to friends and family. The guests that gathered at the weekend thought they were there to celebrate Chan’s graduation from Medical School at the University of California, but were instead met by a wedding surprise. As they exchanged their vows, Zuckerberg presented Chan with a ring he had designed himself, featuring ‘a very simply ruby’.
Now I’m sure Mrs Facebook, Pricilla Chan will make a nice dollar of her own as a doctor but I do wonder if the newlyweds signed a prenup or not…
Stay tuned for Zuckerberg’s personal Facebook page to be filled with honeymoon snaps, baby photos and other annoying status updates. Let’s just hope the relationship status doesn’t turn into a ‘it’s complicated’ anytime soon.
