Tyra Banks can now add fashionable mommy to her already stellar resume.
On Wednesday, Banks shared on Instagram that she and her Norwegian photographer beau Erik Asla welcomed a son, York Banks Asla, via surrogate. She posted a photo of a baby beanie to her account with the caption, “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.” Asla shared the same photo captioned, “Witnessing the dawn of life is possibly life’s greatest gift.”
In an exclusive statement to PEOPLE, the beauty mogul said, “We are so excited for our new baby boy bundle of joy. 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.”
Banks has been very open about her journey to have a baby discussing going through IVF and how hard it was for her to conceive. She talked about it on her former show The Fab Life. [Watch below]
