Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Tyra Banks celebrated her first mother’s day on Sunday and to mark the special event, she posted a photo of her with her mother and her son, baby York.
The 42-year-old super model took to Instagram to post the three generations photo. The snap showed her carrying her baby Yok Banks Asla as she smiled widely. Her mother, Carolyn London, stood beside her, who seemed to be peering over her grandson.
She wrote on the caption: "I'm hearing, 'Happy Mother's Day' and I can't believe how lucky I am! Of all the fashionable hats I wear, I love being a #mother the most. # HappyMothersDay from me and my mama to all the wonderful women of the world!"
Banks announced the birth of her baby back in January. He and her partner, Erik Asla , had their baby born via a surrogate. Tyra revealed last year on the show “FABLife” that she was battling infertility and that she has undergone IVF treatments in the past.
The “America’s Next Top Model” star took to Instagram to announce the arrival of their baby with a snap of a small knit cap of her son. She 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.”
York is the first child of Banks and her photographer boyfriend. The two have been together for two years now.
Banks recently gushed about her son in an interview last March. She said that although she does not get enough sleep, having her baby made her empower her business team more and that she understands delegation better.
