As the boss of massive web search engine Yahoo, Marissa Mayer is a pretty big deal. When she joined Yahoo in 2012, she was pregnant with her first child – and famously took just two weeks off from her high-powered job after delivering her son.
And after she’s given birth to her twins in December, Marissa is planning to take the same fortnight of maternity leave – and work throughout her time off.
So just because she’s 8 months pregnant, don’t expect this businesswoman to show any signs of slowing down. Speaking on the panel at the Fortune Global Forum this week, Marissa wore a stunning maternity dress with a white, blue and green floral pattern on a black background.
Her bump isn’t as visible from straight-on, so it looks like she’s carrying in front.
The 40 year old is married to venture capitalist Zack Bogue. Blogging about her maternity leave plans in September, she said: “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.”
