Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg has said that he’ll be going on a 2-month paternity leave once is second daughter with wife Priscilla Chan is born.

Zuckerberg made this known in an Instagram and Facebook post on Friday.

“Our new daughter is coming soon so I’m planning to take two months of paternity leave. I’m looking forward to bonding with our new little one and taking Max on adventures. I’m pretty sure the office will still be standing when I get back,” he wrote on Instagram.

Sharing the same photo on Facebook, Zuckerberg revealed that Facebook offers “four months of maternity and paternity leave because studies show that when working parents take time to be with their newborns, it’s good for the entire family.”

His full Facebook post read:

When Max was born, I took two months of paternity leave. I will always be grateful I could spend so much time with her in the first months of her life.

Our new daughter is coming soon, and I’m planning to take two months of paternity leave again. This time, I’m going to take advantage of Facebook’s option to take leave in parts. I’ll take a month off to be with Priscilla and the girls at the beginning, and then we’ll spend the whole month of December together as well. I’m looking forward to bonding with our new little one and taking Max on adventures.

At Facebook, we offer four months of maternity and paternity leave because studies show that when working parents take time to be with their newborns, it’s good for the entire family. And I’m pretty sure the office will still be standing when I get back.
