May the force by with you -- and with baby Max.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted a photo on his social networking site Thursday of his newborn girl Max just hours before "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" opens in theaters.

"The force is strong with this one," Zuckerberg wrote, alongside the "Star Wars" themed photo.

Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, announced the arrival of their newborn girl, Max, at the beginning of December.

"Priscilla and I are so happy to welcome our daughter Max into this world," Zuckerberg wrote on Facebook.

But that wasn't the only announcement the couple had.

In honor of their Max's birth, they wrote on Facebook that they would pledge to donate 99 percent of their Facebook shares over the course of their lifetime to the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, which describes its mission as advancing human potential and promoting equality in areas such as health, education, scientific research, and energy.

"For your generation to live in a better world, there is so much more our generation can do," the couple wrote.

The announcement did receive some backlash from critics though, who questioned how that money would be used.

As CBS News previously reported, the controversy over the massive donation stems comes from the initiative's status as an LLC, or limited liability company, rather than a nonprofit.

A few days later, Zuckerberg tried to address the concerns about his announcement, on Facebook.

"The Chan Zuckerberg Initiaitve is structured as an LLC rather than a traditional foundation. This enables us to pursue our mission by funding non-profit organizations, making private investments and participating in policy debates -- in each case with the goal of generating a positive impact in areas of great need," Zuckerberg wrote on Facebook. "Any net profits from investments will also be used to advance this mission."

I want to thank you all for your heartwarming congratulations on Max's birth and on starting the Chan Zuckerberg...

Last week, Zuckerberg posted a photo of himself changing baby Max's diaper.

"One more down, thousands to go," he captioned the photo.
