'Max and Finn Notaro arrived happy, healthy and really, really cute. Fluff has a ton of questions about how long they plan on staying,' she wrote.

'Thank you everybody for your endless love and support,' the stand-up comic captioned a snapshot of the fuzzy cat eyeing the two babies lying in their own cribs.
The newlyweds - who tied the knot last October - revealed that they planned on using Stephanie's eggs to have the twins via a surrogate.
The couple met on the set of Notaro's 2013 indie comedy In A World... and got engaged on New Year's Day of 2015.

Tig made a huge Facebook announcement in January once the couple learned they were expecting twins.
'I am beyond excited to announce that Mrs. Notaro and I are expecting TWINS in the coming months!' she wrote to her social media followers.
'When Stephanie and I got together, after so much excessive travel and work, we imagined a life where we could eventually raise a family amongst our own family one day,' she added.
'Now it blows our minds that our dream has been realized over the past nearly 3 years in the making.'
