By Anthea Quay, 21 May 2012
After selling Facebook for 421.2 million shares each valued at US$38 on Thursday, Mark Zuckerberg is now worth US$19.1 billion dollars—making him the 29th-richest person on Earth.
According to Los Angeles Times, Zuckerberg is now richer than “Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page”.
And just a day after taking his company public, the Facebook CEO married his long-time girlfriend Priscilla Chan.
Zuckerberg posted a photo on his Facebook Timeline on Saturday evening, of him and Chan at their wedding.
The two met as Harvard students and have been dating for more than nine years, according to Los Angeles Times. And Chan recently graduated from UC San Francisco’s medical school on Monday.
The wedding was said to be held at the backyard of Zuckerberg’s Palo Alto, California, home—and fewer than 100 people attended the wedding.
Friends who attended the wedding thought they were attending Chan’s graduation party.
