Supermodel, beauty business entrepreneur and television personality Tyra Banks adds another title: Mom.
She and her boyfriend Erik Asla have welcomed a son, York Banks Asla, born via surrogate. She announced the happy news in an emotional post on Instagram, making note of her long journey to become a mother and thanking the woman who carried York as a surrogate.
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.
“I’ve made an executive decision to keep following my heart and spend more time focusing on my army of entrepreneurs, my Beautytainers, so we can bring the power of transformation to people everywhere,” she said then in a post on her public Facebook page.
Turns out she had a much bigger job awaiting her! Congrats to the whole family!
