It’s official, Mark Zuckerberg’s daughter is the cutest Star Wars fan the galaxy has ever seen. Zuckerberg took to Facebook to announce the birth of his daughter, and to gear up for the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Zuckerberg shared an adorable picture of his daughter Max dressed up as a Jedi, with a side-eyed look that could break hearts.
If that isn’t enough, he made sure that daughter Max only had the best of friends surrounding her for the photo. She’s posed with Chewie, Darth Vader, and new droid BB-8. Of course, she’s also sporting the weapon of choice – a lightsaber, to protect her from evil invaders.

To add to the cuteness overload, Zuckerberg captioned the picture with the following.
“The force is strong with this one.”
Prior to posting his photo of Max dressed as a Jedi, Zuckerberg, like much of the other users on Facebook, posted a year in review, to cap off 2015.
Featuring a photo of his daughter and a few other life events, the Facebook founder captioned his post as follows.
“This has been a memorable year. We grew our little family, expanded our philanthropy, reached one billion people on Facebook every day, shipped virtual reality, built drones to beam down internet access, gave a speech in Chinese and traveled around the world. Here’s to a great 2016!”
Zuckerberg, and his wife Priscilla Chang announced the birth of their daughter in a separate Facebook post on December 1, along with a family photo.
Before Max was born, Mark opened up about he and his wife’s struggle to conceive. In the announcement that they were expecting a baby, Mark revealed that they had lost three babies due to miscarriages. Hoping to shed a light on an otherwise painful and personal issue, Zuckerberg put a spotlight in hopes to connect to others that are going through the same thing.
“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.”
“In today’s open and connected world, discussing these issues doesn’t distance us; it brings us together. It creates understanding and tolerance, and it gives us hope.”
Many people on the platform praised the Zuckerbergs for coming forward with this huge talking point that is usually hidden out of shame. Since then Zuckerberg has been coming forward with other messages of hope in an effort to bring people together.
As The Inquisitr reported, Zuckerberg came forward in support of the Muslim community, who are currently facing discrimination and living in fear of being persecuted. In a post, he spoke out about the scary time for this specific community:
“I want to add my voice in support of Muslims in our community and around the world. After the Paris attacks and hate this week, I can only imagine the fear Muslims feel that they will be persecuted for the actions of others.”
Since Max’s birth, Zuckerberg has been posting a few photos documenting his experiences as a new father. Soon after sharing his first photo, Zuckerberg posted a photo of himself on diaper duty.
