Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg to Take a 2 Month Paternity Leave

Mark Zuckerberg has announced that he will take a two month paternity leave from his job as CEO of Facebook when his baby girl is born.

The 31-year-old businessman and his wife Priscilla Chan are expecting their first child together.

Priscilla and I are starting to get ready for our daughter’s arrival. We’ve been picking out our favorite childhood books and toys,” Mark wrote in a Facebook post. “We’ve also been thinking about how we’re going to take time off during the first months of her life. This is a very personal decision, and I’ve decided to take 2 months of paternity leave when our daughter arrives.”

“Studies show that when working parents take time to be with their newborns, outcomes are better for the children and families. At Facebook we offer our US employees up to 4 months of paid maternity or paternity leave which they can take throughout the year,” Mark added. “Every day things are getting a little more real for us, and we’re excited to start this next stage in our lives.”

    God, he’s insufferable. Everything he says sounds so self-righteous and snooty.

    Wish them both the best.
    Where I worked before retiring, you got 6 weeks paid leave for maternity, anything else you were on your own nickel. Former boss took six months for her first child. Four months is very generous.
