Priscilla Chan and her husband, Mark Zuckerberg, are expecting their second daughter. Any new baby is exciting, but when the baby is Facebook royalty, the world listens to what Dad is going to do about the new baby. Zuckerberg says he’ll take two months of parental leave when the new baby makes her appearance–one month after the birth and then the month of December. He assures us that “I’m pretty sure the office will still be standing when I get back.”
I’m pretty sure he will be as well. Parental leave is a hot topic and Facebook actually offers four months of parental leave, causing some people to question why Zuckerberg doesn’t use the entire four months of offered leave. I have an answer for that: He doesn’t want to.
I’m also going to make an educated guess that Chan doesn’t want him to take additional leave either and that they’ve decided that this is what is best for their family. And with that, the rest of us should shut up.
