Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is expected to start paternity leave as he anticipates his first born in two months’ time.

His wife, Priscilla, has experienced three consecutive miscarriages, which brought a lot of anxiety to Zuckerberg’s family.

Announcing the news on Friday, Zuckerberg had this to say on hi Facebook Page:

“Priscilla and I are starting to get ready for our daughter’s arrival. We’ve been picking out our favorite childhood books and toys.

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.

Every day things are getting a little more real for us, and we’re excited to start this next stage in our lives.
