Tyra Banks, has announced via social media that she is a new mum!
The American-Born, 42-year- old, former supermodel revealed via her instagram account yesterday that she is now the proud mum of baby boy, York.
Tyra posted on her insta account a photo of a baby hat with blue and pink candy stripes, captioned with -
'The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here...'
Tyra has spoken openly about wanting to have a family over the years and most recently made an emotional statement on talk show FABLife, where she broke down when co-host Chrissy Teigen talked about the intrusive interview questions she regularly has to face surrounding fertility issues within her marriage with John Legend. Clearly resonating with Tyra, she chimed in and said 'I am so tired of seeing on my social media - Why don't you have kids? Why don't you have kids? You don't know what I'm going through, you have no idea!'
After years of unsuccessful IVF treatments, the catwalk model and her Norwegian beau, Erik Asla, 50, decided to try surrogacy. The star went on to thank the unnamed surrogate mother of her newborn, referring to her as 'the angel of a woman that carried our miracle baby for us.'
