Yahoo! Marissa Mayer Gives Birth To Baby BoyYahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has given birth to a baby boy, her husband confirmed Monday.

“Baby boy Bogue born last night,” Zachary Bogue tweeted. “Mom and baby are doing great — we couldn't be more excited!”

Bogue didn’t reveal the new arrival’s name or weight. The baby was born a week before his Oct. 7 due date.

Mayer, 37, joined Yahoo in July after leaving Google — and also announced that she was six months pregnant.

The tech giant showed "evolved thinking" by hiring a pregnant woman to run it, she told Fortune at the time.

She only planned to take “a few weeks” of maternity leave, and “work throughout it,” she told the magazine.

"I like to stay in the rhythm of things," Mayer explained.

 Mayer joined Google in 1999 as its 20th employee and first female engineer and became one of the search giant's most famous faces.

She led a number of the company’s businesses over the years from Google News to Gmail to Image Search.

The news that she would be taking over as President and CEO of the struggling Yahoo came as a shock to many in the tech community.
