Facebook Chief Executive and White Plains native Mark Zuckerberg will reportedly take two months of paternity leave when his wife gives birth to the couple's daughter, according to marketwatch.com.

Zuckerberg, who was raised in Dobbs Ferry and attended Ardsley High School, announced the pregnancy along with his wife, Priscilla Chan, in July, but did not say when the child is due.

According to marketwatch.com, Zuckerberg's scheduled leave of two months represents half of the paid time the company's male employees are permitted.

According to forbes.com, Zuckerberg's net worth was estimated to be about $47 billion as of Friday.
