Yahoo’s chief executive Marissa Mayer is pregnant with not just one, but two girls! The powerful CEO announced on her blog that she’s expecting twin girls with her husband Zachary Bogue, come December. So exciting!
Sept. 1 was a big day for Yahoo’s CEO Marissa Mayer, 40. She announced on her personal blog that she and husband Zachary Bogue, are expecting identical twin girls. How wonderful!
It was a giant twin surprise for Marissa and Zack. The powerful couple are expecting identical twin girls and couldn’t be happier. Even though Marissa will become a very busy mom-of-three, she doesn’t plan on slowing down one bit. The CEO will be going about this pregnancy like her first.
After the arrival of her first child, son Macallister, Marissa went right back to work starting from home and then quickly jumping back into the office within a two weeks. She was criticized for it hard. Marissa was accused of setting “unrealistic expectations” for young women.
Then just a few months later, she extended Yahoo’s parental leave and added other perks for families, including giving new parents a $500 stipend for buying groceries and baby clothes. So amazing. One thing is for sure, Marissa is going to need a stroller fit for three — and THIS ONE is perfect for a parent with twins and a toddler.
Marissa Explains Her Short Maturnity Leave
The mom-to-be took to her personal blog to announce the pregnancy, and let everyone know she plans on taking “limited time away and working throughout” once her girls come.
“With great happiness, Zack and I have some exciting news to share – I’m pregnant! In fact, I’m expecting identical twin girls, likely arriving in December. The twins part was quite a surprise, because I have no family history of twins or any other predisposing factors. However, as I’ve now learned, identical twins occur by random chance in roughly 1 out of approximately every 300 pregnancies. Zack and I have embraced the surprise and are very excited about these new additions to our family.
Since my pregnancy has been healthy and uncomplicated and since this is a unique time in Yahoo’s transformation, I plan to approach the pregnancy and delivery as I did with my son three years ago, taking limited time away and working throughout. I’ve shared the news and my plans with Yahoo’s Board of Directors and my executive team, and they are incredibly supportive and happy for me. I want to thank them for all of their encouragement as well as their offers of help and continued support.
Leading Yahoo in our renaissance, alongside a terrific and dedicated team, has given me tremendous professional pride in our accomplishments. I’ve never been more excited about our progress and the growth opportunities for our amazing company. At the same time, I’m blessed to have experienced some of my most extraordinary and proudest personal moments while being Yahoo’s CEO. Moving forward, there will be a lot to do for both my family and for Yahoo; both will require hard work and thoughtful prioritization. However, I’m extremely energized by and dedicated to both my family and Yahoo and will do all that is necessary and more to help both thrive. The future looks extremely bright on both fronts.”
