Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer: Having A Baby Is ‘Easier’ Than I Thought

The working mom revealed in her first interview since giving birth in September that having a newborn baby is ‘easy’ — because she can afford hired help, do YOU think that’s fair?

Marissa Mayer shocked working moms everywhere when she returned to work just two weeks after giving birth to her first child, Macallister Bogue, on Sept. 30. Now, the powerful CEO and working mom is saying it’s all been easy — without mentioning her ability to afford premium childcare.

Marissa addressed an audience at FORTUNE magazine’s Most Powerful Women dinner in Palo, Alto California on Nov. 27 — her first interview since welcoming her baby boy in September, and said two things shocked her most about her high-profile job.

“I knew that the job would be hard, and I knew that the baby would be fun,” she said. “And the thing that surprised me, and really puzzlingly so, is that the job is really fun! Yahoo! is a really fun place to work.”

She also said having a newborn baby is not nearly as hard as she expected — probably because she can afford hired help. She also looks like she’s lost all of her baby weight in an extremely short amount of time.

“The baby’s been way easier than everyone made it out to be,” she said. “I think I’ve been really lucky that way but I had a very easy healthy pregnancy, he’s been easy. So those have been the two really terrific surprises: the kid has been easier and the job has been fun!”

She added that the secret to her success is ruthlessly prioritizing, hence her lack of interviews thus far, and said her list of priorities are, “God, family, and Yahoo!, in that order.”
