York Banks Asla is a long-awaited and the only son of Tyra Banks with her former partner Erik Asla. The supermodel revealed that when she turned 40, the only thing she regretted was that she didn’t have a child. However, the miracle happened and York drew his first breath. As Tyra couldn’t get pregnant, the boy was born by a surrogate mother.
Tyra wants to keep her son away from limelight and protect from fame. As a rule, she doesn’t post his photos on social media like many other stellar parents. Moreover, she regrets the shot of the boy she shared soon after his birth. However, Banks revealed that she did that because she didn’t want paparazzi to make money off her child by having the first picture. Moreover, she doesn’t want York to get engaged into modeling.
A curious fact: York is very smart and already speaks three languages: English, Norwegian and Spanish.
