Terry Richardson to Be a Dad for the First Time

Terry Richardson and his girlfriend, Alexandra Bolotow, are officially parents.

Richardson, who's photographed the likes of Martha Stewart and Jared Leto, announced the news via Instagram on Tuesday morning, posting a photo of Bolotow holding their twin boys, Rex and Roman.

"So blessed and grateful for this sweet family," he captioned. "Welcome to the world Rex + Roman. March 19th, 2016 6:23pm and 6:35pm, 6lbs 1 oz and 6lbs 10oz."

The controversial photographer confirmed they were expecting in October -; also via Instagram. In January, Richardson, 50, continued his explicit antics by throwing a baby shower that included dildos, condoms and a cake that depicted Bolotow giving birth to the couple's twins.

The pair met when Bolotow, 32, started interning at his studio while attending NYU.
