Not only is Marissa Mayer pregnant for the second time, she’s expecting twin girls! The Yahoo CEO took to Tumblr for the exciting announcement, writing: “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 one out of approximately every 300 pregnancies…Zack and I have embraced the surprise and are very excited about these new additions to our family.”
Mayer and her husband, Zachary Bogue, are already parents to son, Macallister, who will turn three this month. The executive made headlines during her last pregnancy for choosing to take a very short leave of absence after the birth of her first child. She shared her plans to take two weeks off following the birth of her twins, reasoning “Since my pregnancy has been health 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.”
The baby girls are due sometime in December.
