Tig Notaro bares double mastectomy and newborns on social media

Lesbian comedian Tig Notaro shared an intimate look at her life in a photo posted on Facebook and Twitter that showcases her double mastectomy and her newborn twin babies.

Notaro, 45, was diagnosed with breast cancer in both her breasts in 2012. The breast cancer survivor opted to have a double mastectomy without reconstructive surgery. Notaro has been open about the operation, even performing a stand-up show topless in New York City in 2014.

The comic and her married partner Stephanie Allynne, 31, had twin boys Max and Finn via a surrogate in June.

In the photo, Notaro lounges in bed topless with her children. The caption reads “This is my life.”
