Mark Zuckerberg's newborn daughter August has become an internet sensation after the Facebook founder shared a photo of the infant on social media Sunday.

In two days, the photo of Zuckerberg with his daughter in his arms captioned "baby cuddles are the best," drew more than 1.2 million likes, 48,000 comments and was shared over 12,536 times.

Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, announced the birth of their second child on Facebook last week, posting a sentimental letter that the couple had written for August about the world she would be growing up in.

"Dear August, welcome to the world," Zuckerberg wrote. "Your mom and I are so excited to see who you will become."

The post went on to emphasize the importance of childhood.

"Childhood is magical. You only get to be a child once, so don't spend it worrying too much about the future. You've got us for that, and we'll do everything we possibly can to make sure the world is a better place for you and all children in your generation."

Zuckerberg has used Facebook in the past to document key milestones in his family's life.

It began two years ago when the couple made their first pregnancy announcement.

"Priscilla and I have some exciting news: we're expecting a baby girl!" Zuckerberg posted in July 2015, before sharing with his followers how they had been trying for a child for several years but had suffered three miscarriages along the way.

"We hope that sharing our experience will give more people the same hope we felt and will help more people feel comfortable sharing their stories as well," he added.

Upon the arrival of their first daughter, Maxine, late in 2015, the proud new parents took to Facebook to share the news with a letter similar to the one that was written for August.
