Congratulations to the forever beautiful Tyra Banks on welcoming her baby boy, York Banks Asla! York Banks Asla is Banks and boyfriend Erik Asla’s first child together. The gorgeous couple and proud new parents have been together since 2013.
This exciting news comes as a real thrill as Tyra has revealed in the past that conceiving has not been an easy road. Banks felt as though she had put career in front of bearing children too long, thus missing the opportunity to have a bundle of joy. However, Tyra will know the joys of motherhood thanks to a loving surrogate. Banks took to Instagram to announce the wonderful news saying,
“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.”
In a statement to People Tyra opened up regarding the challenges she has faced and how she now feels. She stated,
“The journey to now has not been an easy process, as I’ve shared before. But there was a beautiful bright light at the end of the tunnel for me and his father, Erik. As I gaze into the beautiful eyes of my son, I think about all the people who struggle with fertility or carrying a child and continue to pray for them every day.”
It looks like Tyra truly has reached the light at the end of the tunnel. For years she asked others if they wanted to be on top, but it looks like with the delivery of York Banks Asla she came out there herself. We are so happy for Tyra and Erik, wishing them the best for their growing family.
