Yahoo chief to take little time off for twins' birth

By John-Paul Ford Rojas

Yahoo chief executive Marissa Mayer has announced that she is due to give birth to twins - but plans to take little time off and "work throughout".

Ms Mayer, who has led the internet search giant for three years, previously took just a couple of weeks off after giving birth to her first child in 2012.

She announced her latest pregnancy in a blog post saying she and husband Zachary Bogue had some "exciting news" to share.

Ms Mayer wrote: "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."

She added: "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'm blessed to have experienced some of my most extraordinary and proudest personal moments while being Yahoo's CEO."
