Happy news for Tyra Banks as the Amercia's Next Top Model host welcomed a baby boy with partner, Erik Asla via a gestational surrogate.
After a long public struggle with IVF and infertility, Banks shared the miracle that is baby York with her fans on Instagram.
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.
"The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here," captioned Banks together with an image of York's baby hat.
She rhymed off the bits of him that are like her and the bits that are like daddy before graciously thanking the "angel of a woman" who carried the baby.
"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," said Banks in a statement.
For many couples, infertility is full of ups and downs, close calls, hopes and dreams dashed. Banks has openly described her struggle to conceive as "traumatic" at times.
There are so many routes to making a beautiful family. It just goes to show it doesn't matter how you get there, as long as you get there.
Congrats to them!
