Tyra Banks Is A Mommy To A Baby Boy!!!

Last night, supermodel, mogul and former America’s Next Top Model host Tyra Banks took to her Instagram to announce some AMAZING NEWS!! In a super sweet post, Banks announced that she and her photographer beau Erik Asla, welcomed a baby boy named York Banks Asla into the world via surrogate. The 42- year old wrote these beautiful words, “The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here. He’s got my fingers and big eyes and his daddy Erik’s mouth and chin. As we thank the angel of a woman that carried our miracle baby boy for us, we pray for everyone who struggles to reach this joyous milestone. York Banks Asla, welcome to the world.”


We could not be more thrilled for the former FABLife co-host who spoke openly about her struggles with infertility and her experience undergoing IVF treatments. When now-pregnant supermodel Chrissy Teigen opened up about her own struggles, Tyra Banks not only backed up her friend but also said this, “You just have no idea what people are going through, so when you ask Chrissy [why don’t you have kids] or me that or anybody that, it is none of your frigging business, okay? And for any women, it is none of your business what somebody is going through. Whether they want to have a child or don’t ever want to have a child or may have a child on the way, it’s none of your business, okay? Until somebody wants to make it your business.”

We couldn’t agree more!  Erik Asla also took to his Instagram posting the same picture of the tiny baby bonnet, but with the caption, “Witnessing the dawn of life is quite possibly life’s greatest gift.”

Everyone deserves to be loved like this.
