At Last! Tyra Banks Welcomes First Child Via Surrogacy

The super model who recently opened up about her fertility struggles (read here) is finally a mum!

Banks, 42, welcomed her miracle baby boy with her photographer boyfriend, Erik Asla, via a surrogate. In a heartwarming Instagram post on Wednesday, the new mum announced,

“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.”
She also gushed in a statement released by her rep to PEOPLE,
“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.

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.”

Congrats to the new parents!
