Tyra Banks is a new mummy to a newborn baby boy named York Banks Asla. This is her first child with photographer boyfriend Erik Asla. Tyra, who made her fertility issues public last September, shared the great news on her Instagram account.

"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. Yorks Banks Asla, welcome to the world," Tyra wrote.

"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," she also told People.

Congratulations, Tyra and Erik! We're sure York will be as gorgeous as his lovely mummy.
