Marissa Mayer Is Expecting Twins

On Monday, Marissa Mayer posted a blog announcing some very exciting news — she's expecting identical twin girls! It's been a healthy and happy pregnancy so far, and Mayer is due in December.

Since Mayer has been pretty vocal on her policies on maternity leave (and since shebuilt a nursery at her office), it's no surprise that she'll continue to work throughout her pregnancy and when the twins are born, too. Mayer said, "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."

Now that the 40 year old has become the highest-paid female CEO, it's clear that there's plenty of work to be done now at Yahoo. The company is planning to close a deal with investors on its stake in Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. Mayer said, "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."

We wish Mayer and her husband Zack all the best!
