Mother and babies are looking great in a new Tweet posted today.
Although Tig Notaro has made it clear in the past that she isn’t interested in being a social media person, today she put those feelings aside to share a very intimate portrait. Tig posed with her two newborn babies, and everyone’s topless. Tig bared her double mastectomy in the photo- she has opted not to have reconstructive surgery. It’s not the first time she publicly bared her post-mastectomy chest- Tig made headlines in November 2014 when she performed part of her set topless at New York’s Town Hall theater.
Twin boys Max and Finn were born on June 26. Notaro and Allynne had a surrogate carry the boys after Tig had struggled with fertility issues, documented in the 2015 movie, Tig. Notaro was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012, and has publicly addressed her illness and treatment. She announced her diagnosis on stage at the Largo in Los Angeles.
