Tyra Banks and Boyfriend Erik Asla Welcome Baby Boy Via Surrogate

Surprise, everyone! Tyra Banks is now a mom.

The supermodel welcomed her first child via surrogate with boyfriend Erik Asla yesterday. Meet her “miracle baby boy,” York Banks Asla.

She wrote on Instagram, “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.”

Her boyfriend Erik added on Instagram, “Witnessing the dawn of life is quite possibly life’s greatest gift.”

The former FABLife host spoke openly about her struggles to conceive during a segment on the show, along with co-host Chrissy Teigen.

I want to co-sign what Chrissy is saying and say ‘You have no idea what people are going through.’ Why am I crying? 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.

Congrats to Tyra and her family!
