'Girls Gone Wild' Creator Joe Francis Welcomes Twin Daughters

The troubled Girls Gone Wild creator announced the news from Mexico

Joe Francis is now a father.

The Girls Gone Wild creator and his girlfriend, Abbey Wilson, welcomed twin girls — named Alexandria Claire Francis and Athena Olivia Francis — on Tuesday in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Francis has a villa in nearby Punta Mita.

The couple broke the news shortly after the birth of their daughters with a photo announcement featuring a pic of the couple and a scenic shot of Puerto Vallarta. Francis had teased the news hours earlier by posting a shot on Instagram of himself outfitted in hospital scrubs and a surgical mask with the caption, "Here we go!!! Babies are coming now!"

It wasn't a surprise that Wilson delivered girls, as the couple revealed that they set out to have daughters through in vitro fertilization. "I believe people will finally understand my love, respect, and admiration for women," Francis said in April when they announced the pregnancy. "I love girls."

The births are a bright spot for Francis, whose name is often attached to negative headlines. In August, a bankruptcy judge questioned whether an arrest warrant should be issued for the 41-year-old over his alleged tampering with GGW bankruptcy proceedings. And last year, Francis was sentenced to jail time for an assault case from 2011 that involved three women at his Bel-Air mansion.
