Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook Second-in-Command, Announces Engagement to Tom Bernthal

San Francisco: Facebook’s number two executive Sheryl Sandberg put out word Monday that she is engaged to marry, nearly five years after being widowed.

In a post on her page at the leading online social network, Sandberg proclaimed herself engaged to marketing executive Tom Bernthal.

“Engaged!!! Tom Bernthal, you are my everything. I could not love you more,” wrote the Facebook chief operating officer.

Author of the feminist bestseller Lean In, Sandberg drew attention in 2015 after the sudden death of her husband David Goldberg at age 47.

Goldberg was the chief executive of online polling firm SurveyMonkey. He died suddenly after falling on a treadmill and striking his head at an upscale resort in Mexico.
