Congrats are in order for Tyra Banks, who just welcomed a baby boy, York Banks Asla, to the family. The supermodel took to Instagram to share the news, referring to him as “the best present we worked and prayed so hard for.” You might be thinking the same thing we did, which was—we didn’t even know Tyra was pregnant. Turns out York, whose father is Tyra’s boyfriend Erik Asla, was carried by a surrogate, who she praises as an “angel of a woman” in her post. See her sweet announcement below—we couldn’t be happier for their growing family! (And we can’t wait to see his first smize.)
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.
