San Francisco: Facebook Inc. Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg announced her engagement to her boyfriend, Tom Bernthal, the co-founder and chief executive officer of marketing company Kelton Global.
Sandberg, 50, who wrote a book about overcoming tragedy after the sudden death of her husband, Dave Goldberg, posted the news on Facebook: “Engaged!!! Tom Bernthal, you are my everything. I could not love you more," she wrote.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg replied: “Congrats! You’re wonderful for each other and I’m so happy for both of you."
In her book, “Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy," Sandberg says that a major part of overcoming tragedy is understanding that the choice you thought you’d have is no longer available. She also notes that men start dating earlier after losing a spouse, and are not as frequently criticized. Goldberg died in 2015.
