Tyra Banks Welcomes Her Miracle Baby

After struggles with infertility, Tyra Banks has welcomed a child

Very exciting news for supermodel and America’s Next Top Model host, Tyra Banks, and her photographer boyfriend Erik Asla. The couple have announced that they have welcomed their first child via surrogate.

On January 27th, Banks took to her Instagram to let the world know that York Banks Asla had joined their family.

“The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here,” she wrote. “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.”

Banks, who opened up about her struggle with infertility, turned to a surrogate when her attempts at IVF treatments weren’t successful.

“When I turned 40, the one thing I was not happy about is that I did not have kids. I’m like, ‘Damn, the clock is ticking!’”

It was then that she turned to IVF treatments.

“I’ve had some not happy moments with that, very traumatic moments,” Banks shared. “It’s difficult as you get older. It’s not something that can just happen.”

Congratulations!
