Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan announced they had a baby girl and will donate the majority of their Facebook fortune to charity.

This is What's Trending Today

Zuckerberg announces $45 billion pledge

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg wrote a letter to his baby girl, Max, on Tuesday. He wants her "to grow up in a world better than ours today."

Zuckerberg wrote that he and his wife, Priscilla Chan, would donate 99% of his Facebook stock shares, worth about $45 billion, to do just that.

Even with the large donation, Zuckerberg will remain extremely rich.

After the news came out, Zuckerberg was one of the most searched names on Google. His Facebook post received more than one million likes.

Well-known people like Shakira and Arnold Schwarzenegger also gave the thumbs-up.

Financial analysts say it is a good move to prevent the shares from being taxed when they are sold.

The shares will be donated to the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative over Zuckerberg's lifetime. Zuckerberg and his wife, Chan, head the organization, of course.

Pediatrician shows how to calm babies

Everyone wants to know how to keep babies from crying.

That is why a video posted by Dr. Robert Hamilton of California received 1.7 million views in its first day on YouTube.

Hamilton has been practicing this technique on babies he sees in his practice for 30 years.

He calls it "The Hold."

The technique includes three steps:

  • First, fold the baby's arms gently over each other, and hold them with your left hand.
  • Next, hold the baby's bottom with your right hand.
  • Then bounce the baby gently while holding it at a 45-degree angle.

In Hamilton's video, the babies become calm after just a few seconds.
