Banks and her boyfriend Erika Asla have welcomed their first child.
Congratulations are in order for supermodel Tyra Banks who has welcomed her first child with boyfriend Eric Asla. Banks announced the arrival of baby York Banks Asla on Instagram, describing him as their ‘miracle baby boy’.
Posting a cute pic of baby clothes Banks wrote: ‘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.’ On his Instagram Asla added, ‘Witnessing the dawn of life is quite possibly life's greatest gift.’
In September Banks had opened up about her fertility struggles with co-host Chrissy Teigen on chat-show 'FABLife'. "I want to co-sign what Chrissy is saying and say 'You have no idea what people are going through," Banks said.
"And for any women, it is none of your business what somebody is going through. Whether they want to have a child or don't ever want to have a child or may have a child on the way, it's none of your business, okay? Until somebody wants to make it your business."
Revealing she’d been undergoing IVF treatments, Banks added: “We're kind of going through this similar thing with IVF. And, you know, putting needles in your tummy every day and having to come to work and smile when you feel like you want to throw up and lay down...I can't believe I'm saying this right now.”
