Calling it â€œthe happiest Valentineâ€™s Day of her life,â€ Tyra Banks shared a photo of her son York on Instagram Sunday.
Last month, Banks revealed that she and her boyfriend Erik Asla had had a son via surrogate.
â€œThe best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here,â€ the new mom, who struggled to conceive on her own, captioned an Instagram photo of her sonâ€™s hat.
â€œHeâ€™s got my fingers and big eyes and his daddy Erikâ€™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,”Â Banks, 42, said.
She added, â€œYork Banks Asla, welcome to the world.â€
Banks and Asla have been together for two years.
Last year on FABLife, Banks spoke of her emotional journey to become a mother, saying sheâ€™d been taking IVF treatments to help her conceive. At the time, co-host Chrissy Teigen also spoke about her fertility struggles with. Shortly after, Teigen and her husband John Legend revealed that she was pregnant.
Throughout the years, Banks has said that her career is too demanding to have a child and that she wasnâ€™t ready to slow down yet. However, to become a mother is something Banks has always wanted. â€œI wonâ€™t be happy if Iâ€™m not a mother,â€ Banks told Harperâ€™s Bazaar Singapore in 2012.
