Breast cancer survivor Tig Notaro posts beautiful, topless image with her new twins

Tig Notaro has just become a mom to twins

American stand-up comic and podcaster, Tig Notaro, has prompted hundreds of comments with a photo that she posted to her Facebook page yesterday.

Already a respected figure in the world of comedy, in 2012 Notaro made headlines when she talked openly in her show about being diagnosed with breast cancer in both her breasts. She subsequently had a double mastectomy.

She has since performed on stage topless to raise awareness around breast cancer and its treatment. Her 2015 HBO comedy special, Boyish Girl Interrupted, was recently nominated for an Emmy award.

In October 2015, Notaro, now 45, married partner Stephanie Allynne, 31, and announced in January this year that they were expecting twins.

The twins were born via a surrogate on 26 June. Yesterday, Notaro shared a photo of them for the first time on her Facebook page.

She was widely applauded for not hiding the fact she has had a mastectomy.

‘A lesbian who is recovering from a double mastectomy and her two babies. And yet Kaitlyn Jenner was named woman of the year,’ was a widely-liked comment from one Roger Duncan.

Alex Dehoff said, ‘I remember watching your documentary and sobbing when it happened that you wouldn’t be having a child then. I thought no one could deserve a baby as much as you.’

Another, Jessica Asakevich, says, ‘As I sit here, breastfeeding my two month old daughter, with my 5 year old running wild through the house, I’m so thrilled to see such joy in your life. I have such admiration for you, and am beyond happy to witness the bliss you and Stephanie have found. No two people are more deserving, and I wish you and those beautiful bundles all the happiness in the world.’
