Mark Zuckerberg couldn't resist telling his 59 million Facebook fans about the love he feels for his wife Priscilla on Thursday. The entrepreneur shared a heartfelt post about his "strong, kind, compassionate" wife as it was revealed the couple had been named on Time magazine's list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
Sharing a photo of the magazine cover which features a black-and-white portrait of himself and Priscilla, Mark wrote: "Most days Priscilla works outside the spotlight in the hospital or the classroom. This is the first time she's on the cover of a magazine. I'm looking forward to the world getting to know the strong, kind, compassionate person I love so much."

The couple are named as Titans in the magazine, with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and his wife Melinda writing a letter in which they praise the couple for creating the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, through which they have committed to donating 99% of their wealth to charity.
"Priscilla and Mark are curious. Ambitious. Thoughtful. Open-minded and bighearted. Willing to learn and grow. And they care deeply about fixing the inequities they see in the world," Bill and Melinda wrote.

The Facebook founder was clearly flattered by the praise and thanked Bill and Melinda in a comment on his post. "And thanks to Bill and Melinda Gates for writing such kind words about Priscilla and me," Mark wrote. "Our work is inspired by what you've done at the Gates Foundation. We're grateful for your example and for everything you've done for the world!"
Mark and Priscilla welcomed their baby daughter Max in December, and simultaneously announced their plans to donate their wealth in order to improve the world their daughter grows up in.
The couple are relishing parenthood and have continued to share sweet photos of their daughter's first few months, including the all-important feeds and nappy changes along with her first Chinese New Year and first swim.
