Mark Zuckerberg Will Take 2 Months Of Paternity Leave

The head of Facebook shared the big news -- and a cute new photo.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced Friday that he will take two months of paternity leave after his wife, Priscilla Chan, gives birth to their daughter.

He also shared a pretty adorable picture of a stroller and the family dog, Beast. Check out the full post below:

Facebook is known for its generous parental leave policy, offering four months of paid leave. Business Insider reported in August that it's "taboo" for employees not to take the full four months off, or for dads to take less time than moms.

In other words, Zuckerberg's planned leave is on the taboo side of his company's culture. Maybe he'll at least stay away from his work phone.
