According to media reports, Alexandra Bolotow –Terry’s former assistant –is currently expecting twins with the controversial photographer.
An excited Terry posted Page Six, cover of the story, to Instagram, confirming the happy news and saying:
“Babies’ first Page Six shout out! We weren’t planning to make this news quite so public quite so soon, because we are very cautious after going through some very difficult and heartbreaking losses, and always afraid of jinxing it, but since the cat is out of the bag… Skinny and I are very excited to let you guys know that we are expecting TWINS in the spring!!!”
Terry added, it has been a difficult journey for the couple but at the same time they are thankful to be surrounded by so much love and support from friends and family. He also took the chance to thank their doctors and even said the twins will be excited to use that photo as a #tbt.
Several media reports, say Alexandra Bolotow has known Richardson for about 10 years, and she appeared in 90 explicit photos by the fashion photographer in his 2005 book, “Kibosh.” She reportedly met him when she was still an NYU student, then became an intern for Richardson before working for him full time and later studying anthropology at Columbia.

The 50-year-old is equally known for his questionable behavior. He’s faced accusations of models saying he manipulates young girls into taking photos they would be ashamed of. However, Terry has never been charged and has repeatedly denied the accusations.
