There’s more than just her age—37—and the fact that she’s left a top job at Google to take over a faded tech giant that’s surprised people about Marissa Mayer’s agreeing to become Yahoo’s CEO. She’s also six months pregnant. She and technology advisor husband Zachary Bogue are expecting a boy in October.
