SAN FRANCISCO  — Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has followed a major business announcement with some big personal news.

She gave birth to twin girls Thursday, the day after unveiling plans to hatch a new company to control Yahoo’s Internet business.

This is the second time that the 40-year-old Mayer has given birth since Yahoo hired her as CEO in July 2012. She and her husband have a 3-year-old son, Macallister.

A Yahoo spokeswoman declined to reveal the twin’ names or weights.

Mayer on Wednesday announced that Yahoo will spin off its Internet operations into a separate company.

As she did with her son, Mayer plans to only take a “limited” time away from her job. She has been working on a cost-cutting overhaul of Yahoo that she plans to discuss next month.
