These are the Top 10 Companies to Work for to get Generous Paternity Leave

Unlike progressive nations like Sweden, the United States doesn’t have federally mandated paternity leave for employers. Only 12 percent of US companies offer it.

Given that Bellyitch is an online digital blog and eMagazine and a proud member of Team Internet, we were quite elated to see that 5 of the top 10 companies with generous paternal leave as identified by TakePart are tech companies:

Change.org tops the list at #1 with its 18 weeks paternity leave offering.

Coming in behind the online petitioning site at #2 is Reddit which offers 17 weeks for birth and adoptive dads.

Facebook is number 3 on the list and it extends its leave policy to contractors as well as employers. Sweet!

Number 5 on the list is Twitter which also has a support group for new and future dads. Imagine!

Finally, rounding up tech companies on the top 5 is Google, which at #7 on the list, offers 12 weeks if Dad is the primary caregiver and then throws in an additional 5 weeks for adoptive and surrogate parents.

Awesome!

The other ten companies on the list are: Bank of America (#3), eco-friendly retailer Patagonia (#4),  international US-based law firm Arnold and Porter (#8), Swiss health firm Roche International‘s US offices (#9); and business management consultants Ernst & Young. (#10)

Does this photo of Kandi Burruss’ husband Todd give clues of a pregnancy?

Facebook

Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Kandi Burruss was most likely shopping for a friend in Los Angeles this weekend when she snapped her new husband Todd Tucker in the infant section of a shoe store.

Nonetheless, the Facebook share of the photo Tucker captioned “In LA shoe shopping! Hope y’all kickin it today and enjoying something” with his initials sent tongues flapping that the multi-award winning songwriter was expecting her second child.

If it were true, this would be her first with Tucker, a freelance producer who was part of the show’s production team  while filming in South Africa when he started dating his new wife.

Burruss, who is 38, reportedly has said she is eager to start trying to have a child and of course several sites have jumped on this potential story and run with it. I suppose here we are too, huh?

Time will tell.
