In one of the best-kept secrets in Hollywood, Tyra Banks just had a baby. Well, technically, her surrogate just gave birth to her new son, York Banks Asla. The father of the baby is photographer Erik Asla, who Tyra has been dating for the past two years.
The model teased a photo of a baby hat on her Instagram page with a caption describing her new bundle of joy:
“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.”
The 42-year-old has been very candid about her issues with fertility and seemingly not being able to “make time” to have kids over the years as she built her empire, which includes modeling, acting, producing, and a newly established cosmetics line.
Now that she’s quit her talk show The Fab Life and may be in a limited role when America’s Next Top Model returns to VH1, Tyra will have plenty of time to be a full-time mom to her new son. Congrats to the happy couple!
