Over the summer, Zuckerberg achieved ultimate girl dad status when he brought his two older daughters to Taylor Swift's Eras tour. The father of three documented the experience with his family at Levi's Stadium by posting a sweet collection of photos on Instagram after the concert.

"Life of a girl dad," Zuckerberg captioned the post, which featured three photos from the Eras Tour.

Earlier this week, Zuckerberg channeled his parental side while being questioned before Congress about the concerning effects of social media on its youngest users.

The Meta CEO apologized Wednesday to parents attending a Senate hearing addressing online child safety on Capitol Hill. Zuckerberg apologized first after he was confronted by Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley about issues such as the number of girls who were exposed to unwanted nudity on Instagram, which is owned by Meta.

"I’m sorry for everything you’ve all gone through," said Zuckerberg, who stood up and faced the crowd. "It’s terrible. No one should have to go through the things that your families have suffered."

He added, “This is why we have invested so much and we are going to continue doing industry-wide efforts to make sure no one has to go through the things your families have had to suffer.”
