Scary thought, but it’s true! We’ve all seen Tyra be a mother to wannabe models for the past 15 years on ANTM, yelling at girls like Tiffany that “we were all counting on YOU!” — but now the time has come that she’ll raise a child of her own!
Yes, Tyra Banks is now the mother of her very own SON c/o a surrogate mother with her partner, photographer Erik Asla. The tycoon released a statement saying:
“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,” she tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement.
“As I gaze into the beautiful eyes of my son, I think about all the people who struggle with fertility or carrying a child and continue to pray for them every day. My hopes and dreams are filled with well wishes that they get to feel what my little treasure, York Banks Asla, feels like in my arms.”
