Terry Richardson, 50, is a first-time father to twin boys Rex & Roman


We learned months ago that famed photographer and sexual predator Terry Richardson was going to be a father. The news was unexpected and disturbing, like most Terry Richardson stories. Last October, we learned that Terry’s long-time female assistant, Alexandra Bolotow, was pregnant. Alexandra has been in the background of many of the stories about Terry’s predatory behavior – you see, when Terry behaves inappropriately with young models, he often has a female assistant on hand to make the models feel more comfortable, not that it helps in the long run. Anyway, Alexandra and Terry were expecting and if you’ve been on Terry’s social media lately, you’ve probably seen photos of Alexandra’s expanding bump.

As it turns out, Alexandra was pregnant with twins, which I didn’t know. Alexandra gave birth on March 19th to twin boys Rex and Roman. Terry announced the births on his Instagram:

Sigh… congrats to Terry and Alexandra. I’m glad she had a healthy pregnancy and delivery. Just FYI: Terry is only 50 years old (I thought he was a lot older) and Alexandra is 33 years old. I wonder who Terry will want as godparents? Jared Leto and Justin Theroux for godfather duties, and who should be the godmother? Miley Cyrus? Lindsay Lohan?

    Thank god he had boys and not girls. Super creepy dude. His behavior around women is sketchy to say the least.

    • Linn says:

      That was my first thought, but then I realized that he will teach him his disgusting views about women and we have to more horrible misogynists in the making.
      There is no winning being the child of Terry Richardson.

      • tracking says:

        Yes, this. Having daughters might actually have helped change his gross views about women (likely not, but possibly).

    • my3cents says:

      That was my first thought, and only good thought at that.
      On second thought, take babies and run.

    • Ugh, what do you think the boys are going to learn from their father? This creep shouldn’t have kids that he has any contact with, period. Didn’t Uncle Terry’s father face some of the same accusations he’s faced? Apple didn’t fall too far from the tree, if that is the case.

    • swak says:

      I don’t know if it’s better that he had boys. Now he can teach them his creepy ways and we will have twice the amount of creepiness in the future.

      • Oli says:

        Hahaha their multiplying, seriously though those kids are going to be weird, I bet five dollars when they’re like 5 they’re going to get Barbie dolls and take of their heads and when they’re 25 it’s going to be a persons head. #suicidesquad

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Also, sexual predators don’t always select just one sex to abuse.

  2. Greenieweenie says:

    He’s gross but I like the names. That’s a strong, coherent pair of names and their initials will both be RR. Cute.

    • minime says:

      hmm…he’s a perv and chose Roman like Roman Polanski…I know it’s an exaggerated association but coming from him is difficult not to. I hope the kids have a fair chance in life to grow up as nice people.

      • PrincessMe says:

        That’s the first association I made as well, when I heard the name Roman – Roman Polanski.

      • Greenieweenie says:

        Oh that’s funny–not what came to my mind at all. Rex is Latin. So, Latin (word) + Roman…I like that kind of coherency/matching meaning

      • Ankhel says:

        Pretty names… for a couple of Rottweilers.

  3. Oli says:

    When those kids of his grow up I bet their going to have a suicide squad of their own.

    I get a serious murder vibe from terry. He reminds me of the killer from the movie disturbia.

  4. Tiffany says:

    One hand, healthy birth for mother and children. Yay and congrats.

    The other, those poor children will go through life as the children of Terry Richardson.

  5. willful ignorance says:

    Thank you Jesus they are boys

  6. Melody says:

    The rape stories always mention the assistant giving them tea. Guessing she knows what a roofie looks like and how long it takes to dissolve.

  7. ldub says:

    The face she’s making in the first pic is when she found out she was pregnant with his kids.

  8. Cynthia says:

    I’ve been praying for these kids ever since I saw the pictures of her baby shower… so disturbing and gross. Lord knows what disgusting views of women these parents will teach them.

  9. Jayna says:

    After that horribly repulsive cake to announce the gender of their babies, I am so glad they didn’t have twin girls. I wouldn’t trust him around them. Sick man.


  10. Sam says:

    That was a weirdly restrained and classy statement he made to announce their births. I would have expected something more befitting Terry.

    And I do have to give credit to his gf for birthing twins the old-fashioned way. That’s intense and takes guts to do. I’ll certainly give her credit for that.

    • Jezza says:

      I would hope with the birth of the bebes that he would turn a corner and not be the creepy mccreepface we are all skeeved out by. We can only hope.

  11. islandwalker says:

    Poor kids. Yuck.

  12. Ummm says:

    Why is Alexander wearing golliwog pin. She trash just like her baby daddy

    • jinni says:

      So that patch on her black coat is racist. Ok, because I was thinking that something about it reminded me of blackface, but I wasn’t sure.

      Those kids are just screwed at every turn.

    • jmf says:

      It’s actually a character called “Malfi” from the design collective Friends With You. That rainbow-pill-looking thing is also a Friends With You design.

      Don’t get me wrong, I have a LOT of problems with these people—but she probably isn’t deliberately wearing racist iconography on her bubble coat.

  13. Eggland's worst says:

    So, who wants to start a therapy fund for these kids? They’re going to need all the help they can get.

  14. Ivy says:

    I just did a little Google search of the photos he takes because I didn’t really know him. Rarely have I regretted something more than this. What a sick pervert. Feeling sorry for those kids, they are doomed.

  15. tricklady says:

    Wait…. He is only 5o?

    • Beckysuz says:

      It’s a really rough looking 50. I think that fits in with the saying that we all eventually get the face we deserve.

  16. qwerty says:

    Congrats to the new daddy. I hope he’s never ever left alone with his kids.

  17. GoodNamesAllTaken says:


  18. sofie says:

    He gives me the creeps. You can tell by just looking at him. Had same feeling about Jimmy Saville. Everyone knew what he was yet he got away with his behaviour for decades and is not here to answer for it. This is another one who has gotten away with that kind of behavior. Sickening.

  19. Dragonlady sakura says:

    Ugh, the thought of this “man” being a parent to innocent children makes me dry heave. His disgusting ways will catch up to him hopefully and he will end up where he deserves, prison.

  20. Jezza says:


  21. Don’t forget, Alexandra is also a pervert; those babies don’t have a chance!

  22. JRenee says:

    That cake was awful and so is he.
    God help those children. He is creepy as hell and she’s complicit with what he does.

  23. iheartgossip says:

    Those poor twin boys. They don’t stand a chance.

  24. ann says:

    Wonder if Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston will throw a baby shower and they could be godparents. Say what you will about Terry, I don’t like him either, but he’s one of Justin’s best friends and if he was good enough to photograph their wedding, he should be good enough for them to throw a party for them. IMO

  25. kri says:

    The world is sucking this week. I am glad the boys are healthy. I wish them luck.

  26. fiona says:

    Oh gross he’s 50?!! I didn’t realize he was that old. Makes it so much more disgusting reading about his sexual assaults from countless models.

    This man should be in jail, not screwing up the lives of two precious children.

  27. Yoon says:

    He’s disgusting and should be put down like a rabid dog. I have no idea how he’s made a career as a “photographer”. He’s not an artist. He’s a rapist and mediocre as f*ck. Another living source of white male privilege, and the things they can get away with. Must be nice.

    Also f*ck his assistant. She’s just as bad.
