Tyra Banks and her Norwegian photographer boyfriend, Erik Asla are officially parents to healthy baby boy, York Banks Asla.

The America’s Next Top Model creator shared the big news via social media Wednesday night and expressed her excitement in becoming a first time mom.

“The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here,” Banks wrote on Instagram with a photo of a striped hat. “He’s got my fingers and big eyes and his daddy Erik’s mouth and chin.”

She continued, “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.”

Asla also shared the same photo on Instagram with the caption:

“Witnessing the dawn of life is quite possibly life’s greatest gift.”

After IVF procedures in hopes of conceiving, Banks and Asla turned to a gestational surrogate to help create new life.

The former FABLife host has always been open about her infertility struggles; in fact, the model broke down in tears back in September on the newly canceled daytime talk show. “I want to co-sign what Chrissy is saying and say ‘You have no idea what people are going through,'” Tyra said. “Why am I crying? You just have no idea what people are going through, so when you ask Chrissy that or me that or anybody that, it is none of your frigging business, okay?”

She added, “And for any women, it is none of your business what somebody is going through. Whether they want to have a child or don’t ever want to have a child or may have a child on the way, it’s none of your business, okay? Until somebody wants to make it your business.”

Congrats to the couple.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Published

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
