Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, has said that he would be taking two months of paternity leave after the birth of his second daughter.

In fact, Zuckerberg said he would be taking advantage of Facebook’s option to take leaves in parts. He commented in a Facebook post: “I’ll take a month off to be with Priscilla (Chan) and the girls at the beginning, and then we’ll spend the whole month of December together as well.”

Zuckerberg had also taken a two-month paternity leave following the birth of his first child, Maxima Chan Zuckerberg, in 2015. He had announced in March that the couple was expecting a second child.
