Tyra Banks’ Battle with Infertility
Many harsh comments were made against the former model when she announced that she was having a baby through surrogacy. However, she opened up about her decision during an interview, “When I turned 40, the one thing I was not happy about is that I did not have kids. I’m like, ‘Damn, the clock is ticking!’ Since I was 24, I used to say every year, ‘I will have kids in three years.’ I kept saying it over and over again … When you’re like, ‘OK, I’m just going to do it,’ then it’s not so easy as you get older.” After undergoing unsuccessful IVF procedures, the couple resorted to surrogacy.
Tyra Banks’ Happy Life with Her Son and Boyfriend
Tyra Banks’ boyfriend, Erik Asla, already has two daughters from a previous relationship, and has played a big role in raising their son. Banks opened up to People saying, “My secret to balance is to focus on one thing at a time. I used to be the most amazing multitasker, doing three things at once. Not anymore, now that I have my son. I think that’s Mother Nature’s way of saying this life you created takes all of your brain power. Now I’m like, ‘Mommy’s going on a conference call,’ and I give him to his dad.”
York is Already Helping Out
York Banks Asla already likes to help his mother with doing chores around the house.
“He is Mummy’s little helper! He’s in love with his baby-sized broom. Right now, he is into everything and anything, especially stuff he can push or move, so his curiosity is constantly making me laugh.”
Banks tries to keep her son out of the limelight and rarely posts pictures of him on her social media accounts. With her hosting gigs, Tyra Banks is happy about the fact that she can bring her son to with her, “My schedule tends to get insane, so I’m extremely lucky that I can bring him to work with me. He’s already making friends with the crew and loves running around, he is obsessed with big vehicles, so watching the production trucks move is a treat for him.”
