Tyra Banks And Boyfriend Go 50-50 On Diaper Duty

Model Tyra Banks talks about the struggles of being a new mom and sharing it with her boyfriend

New mom Tyra Banks is learning first hand just how hard it can be to balance a newborn and any kind of sleep schedule!

But she isn’t doing it alone—Banks says that she and boyfriend Erik Asla have found a way to split the tasks so they can both keep their sanity and get a few winks of sleep.

“Some mornings you wake up, and you’re lik, ‘Where am I? I don’t know what’s going on. And it’s not a good idea for me to drive right now because I did not sleep,’” the model told E! News in Los Angeles this past Sunday. “So I balance that and his dad helps, and we go back and forth so that’s good.”

Banks added that she and Asla are equal partners in raising their son—well, almost!

“Erik does about forty percent diaper duty at night. So we’re almost 50-50.”

Banks’ first child, York Banks Asla, was born on this January via gestational surrogate. Banks shared the new via Instagram, telling the world, “The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here.”

In a 2012 interview with Steve Harvey, Banks had confessed that, yes, she was more than ready to start her family. “"I'm really ready to have some babies. I want babies!” she told Harvey.

Four years later and Banks is one proud mom, who is happily enjoying her maternity leave.

“I’m on maternity leave right now, just taking a break… I really now am empowering my team. I’m understanding delegation, understanding that I don’t have to do everything to make something successful. I’m on maternity leave and Tyra Beauty is kickin’ butt!”
