Tig Notaro Shares Her Mastectomy Scars in Photo with Newborn Twins: ‘This Is My Life’
Double the snuggles!
New mom Tig Notaro took to Twitter and Facebook on Monday to share the first up-close photo of her twin sons Max and Finn, who were born via a surrogate to Notaro and wife Stephanie Allynne on June 26.
The snap shows the comedian, 45, relaxing on a bed, one son flanking either side of her. She cuddles one baby on the left, while gazing down lovingly at her other son to her right.
“This is my life,” writes Notaro, whose mastectomy scars from her battle with bilateral breast cancer can be seen in the picture.

Notaro has all the reason in the world to celebrate her new journey as a mother after a 2012 diagnosis of bilateral breast cancer — which generated a now-iconic stand-up set for Notaro titled “Hello, I Have Cancer.” The news and resulting battle came around the same time of her own mother’s death.
Four years later, Notaro — who is now cancer-free — and Allynne are happily married and first-time parents.
“People are hard on comedians who have kids and start talking about them all the time,” she told PEOPLE in June. “They’re like, ‘Ugh, they lost their edge.’ I can’t wait to lose my edge.”
