Yahoo! Boss Straight Back To Work After Birth
Yahoo! president and chief executive Marissa Mayer has given birth to a baby boy - and is already checking her emails before a quick return to work within two weeks.
Ms Mayer, a former Google executive, landed her job with Yahoo! in July, having edged out the favourite, acting chief executive Ross Levinsohn.
On the same day Yahoo! announced her hiring, the 37-year-old revealed that she was pregnant.
Yahoo! executives were apparently aware she was expecting when she was interviewed for the job.
But it looks as though she cannot wait to get back to her desk and is limiting her maternity leave.
Yahoo! spokeswoman Anne Espiritu said Ms Mayer plans to work from home for a few days while remaining involved in all key company decisions.
She said she would return to her office at Yahoo's headquarters in Sunnyvale, California, in one to two weeks.
The news of Sunday's birth was revealed by Ms Mayer's lawyer-turned-investor husband, Zachary Bogue, whom she marrried in December 2009.
He tweeted: "Baby boy Bogue born last night. Mom (@marissamayer) and baby are doing great - we couldn't be more excited!"
Ms Mayer is among the most prominent women in technology, ranking number 14 on America's most powerful businesswomen of 2012 by Fortune magazine.
