Marissa Mayer gives birth to baby boy, taking name suggestions over email
Her husband Zach Bogue (pictured right, with Mayer in 2010) says on Twitter, "Baby boy Bogue born last night. Mom (@marissamayer) and baby are doing great--we couldn't be more excited!"
The couple has yet to name the new arrival. New York University professor and blogger Jeff Jarvis tweets, "Just got a large-group email from @marissamayer. She's crowdsourcing suggestions for Baby Boy Bogue's name! How digital can you get? ... Just to be clear, @marissamayer says she'll take suggestions for a name. Nobody suggest Yahoo, now!"
The birth comes a week before her Oct. 7 due date and three weeks before the CEO will make her first extensive public presentation about her new strategy for the company, which is scheduled for Oct. 22.
Mayer intends to work from home for a week or two before returning to Yahoo's headquarters in Sunnyvale, Calif., according to company spokeswoman Anne Espiritu.
