Tyra Banks is a mother!

The 42-year-old America’s Next Top Model host took to Instagram to announce that she and Norwegian photographer Erik Asla welcomed a baby boy, York Banks Asla, via surrogate on Wednesday (January 27).

    Congrats! I’m glad they’re honest about using a surrogate instead of lying about it.

  • Jenny from the flop

    Good for her. I knew she always wanted kids. But can someone explain to me how much biological the child is theirs with a surrogate? Like, is it their blood or the surrogates blood running thru the babys body?

    Leave Beyonce out of this! Ok :)

    Egg from Tyra already fertilised by the father is inserted into a fertile woman’s uterus and the baby grows there. So it has momma and daddy’s genes. The surrogate just carries it for them :)
