In big business news, Yahoo Chief Executive Officer Marissa Mayer has given birth to a baby boy named Zack Bogue.
“Baby boy Bogue born last night,” the father wrote, in a message his wife later retweeted. “Mom (@marissamayer) and baby are doing great — we couldn’t be more excited.”
Here’s a little backdrop on the CEO:
Mayer was one of the original employees at Google and worked there for 14 years before becoming CEO of online search portal and news site Yahoo (YHOO, Fortune 500) in July. Her husband is a lawyer who recently launched Data Collective, an investment fund focused on “big data” startups.
When questioned about her maternity plans – Mayer told Fortune in July that she planned to go back to work quickly after giving birth.
“I like to stay in the rhythm of things,” she said. “My maternity leave will be a few weeks long and I’ll work throughout it.”
According to the naysayers, her views caused a little debate about how corporate family leave policies make it hard to juggle a successful career and family.
