Yahoo’s chief executive Marissa Mayer has given birth to two precious little girls! The powerful CEO announced on her Twitter that she and husband Zachary Bogue have welcomed their twin daughters. So exciting!
It was a very happy day for Yahoo’s CEO Marissa Mayer. She announced on Dec. 10 via Twitter that she gave birth in the early hours of the morning to her twin girls. The powerful mommy and her husband Zachary Bogue are doing great. Such amazing news.
It looks like little Macallister is officially a big brother! Marissa took to Twitter to tell everyone that her little girls have arrived safely. She posted the following statement: “Zack and I are excited to announce that our identical twin girls were born early this morning. Our whole family is doing great!”
Marissa has dealt with a lot of backlash about her maternity leave in the past. After the arrival of her first child, 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.
The hard working mom had taken to her personal blog to announce this 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.”
