Priscilla Chan, Mark Zuckerberg’s Wife, Is ‘Pro-Hoodie’By: Josh Wolford - May 30, 2014
In her first television interview since marrying Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg back in May of 2012, pediatric resident Priscilla Chan answered a question that has been bugging people for years.
Yes, she’s totally cool with all the hoodies.
Her husband is famous for forgoing the normal business attire, instead opting for the more casual and admittedly much more comfortable hoodie. It’s kind of a Mark Zuckerberg thing. The Today Show‘s Savannah Guthrie asked her about it, and here’s what she had to say:
“He has graduated to a nicer hoodie. The main quality about this hoodie that’s nicer is that it’s softer, so he’s really excited about that. I’m happy with whatever he wants to wear, as long as it’s appropriate for where we’re going. So he can’t wear it to weddings. And he can’t wear it to baby showers. But he can do whatever else he wants.”
Apparently, Zuckerberg’s choice of attire is the least of her concerns as a new wife.
“I’m pro-hoodie. He wears a fresh hoodie every day so that pretty much meets my lowest barrier for him,” she said. “I’m more concerned that he eats regularly.”

Of course, the hoodie revelation is important, but the real reason Priscilla is hitting the media circuit is to talk about the $120 million she and her husband just promised to pump into the Bay Area school system.
“Helping improve the quality of public education in this country is something we both really care about. Priscilla has devoted her life to helping children from underserved communities as a pediatrician and as a teacher. I’ve been engaged with education issues over the past few years, and last year I taught an after-school program on entrepreneurship at a public middle school in the Belle Haven community of Menlo Park,” said Zuckerberg in a post today.
