World-famous photographer Terry Richardson has become a dad for the first time at 50, to twin boys.
Terry, who shoots behind the lens for publications like Vogue, joined the celebrities who have twin children gang when he welcomed his two little boys on 19th March with girlfriend Alexandra Bolotow, who he affectionately calls ‘Skinny’, during a time of lots of exciting celebrity baby news!
Alexandra, 33, and Terry, 50, met and fell in love through their shared passion for photography, after she spent some time interning for him while studying at New York University. She later dropped out to become his full time assistant.
As you might expect, Terry has been documenting Alexandra’s pregnancy through a series of photographs and announced the news of his twin boys’ births via an Instagram post.
In it Alexandra can be seen cradling her two sons, who are wrapped in matching blankets, looking calm and relaxed. New dad of two Terry told fans that the couple had named their boys Rex and Roman.
Obviously proud of his girlfriend, Terry wrote, ‘Watching this woman rock it through an insane delivery and push out our babies was the most intense, inspiring, exhilerating, and humbling experience of my life. So blessed and grateful for this sweet family. Welcome to the world Rex + Roman. March 19th, 2016 6:23pm and 6:35pm, 6lbs 1 oz and 6lbs 10oz’
Despite looking tiny, Rex and Roman are actually above average for twins, with siblings typically weighing 5.5lbs each.
Terry and Alexandra are no strangers to controversy with the couple posting regular explicit photos. Just before Alexandra gave birth Terry posted a picture where his girlfriend can be seen giving her two middle fingers to the camera, while wearing just underwear. Terry captioned the image, ‘TGIF I think someone is very happy to be at the end of their pregnancy!’
With Terry as their dad we’re hoping for lots more sweet snaps of Rex and Roman soon!
