“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,” the 42-year-old model wrote on Instagram. “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.”

Such wonderful and exciting news for the couple. Banks has always spoken of her fertility struggles and her desire to have a child of her own .


“I’ve had some not happy moments with that, very traumatic moments,” she has said in previous interviews. “It’s difficult as you get older. It’s not something that can just happen,” she added. “Since I was 24, I used to say every year, ‘I will have kids in three years’… I kept saying it over and over again.”

We are beyond excited for Tyra and her new family- congratulations!
