Facebook is extending its policy on parental leave for its employees worldwide. 

Now new parents will receive four months of paid baby leave, no matter their gender. 
    
The company used its social media site to make the announcement. 
    
The policy comes just days after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced he will take two months of paternity leave when his daughter is born.
