[NEW YORK] Marissa Mayer, chief executive officer of Yahoo! Inc, said she is pregnant with identical twin girls that are due in December.

The 40-year-old plans to take limited time away from her role and work throughout the pregnancy as she did with the birth of her son, according to a post on her blog. The news has been shared with the board and Yahoo's executive team, she said.

"Moving forward, there will be a lot to do for both my family and for Yahoo," Ms Mayer wrote. "Both will require hard work and thoughtful prioritization." Mayer's pregnancy comes as the Sunnyvale, California-based portal prepares to spin off its stake in Alibaba Group Holding Ltd to investors. Yahoo expects the deal to be completed in the fourth quarter.
