“Mark doesn’t usually let me go big for his birthday but for his 40th I was allowed to throw a bash as long as our friends and family also roasted him,” Chan wrote in a separate Instagram post. “We all had a blast! Let’s just say that no one suffered from a lack of material!”

In addition to the roasts and recreations, Zuckerberg also appeared to get a blue, multi-layered cake at his birthday party, according to his wife’s Instagram post.

There also appeared to be a UFC-style octagon that swapped out the “U” for a “Z” present at the festivities. Zuckerberg trains in mixed martial arts and has attended UFC events, including one held in Las Vegas last month.

Gates and others offered happy birthday wishes to Zuckerberg on Instagram, one of the handful of social media platforms under Meta’s umbrella.

The two recently interacted in India, according to reports. In an early March Instagram post, Gates praised Zuckerberg for being “great at dressing for the occasion” and posted a picture of the two while they were both there for an event.
