Next year, on the 9th of January, Tyra will return to host the upcoming season of America’s Next Top Model on Vh1. Tyra has a busy life on account of her hosting duties, as well as motherhood. In fact, during an interview with E! News, the model talked about being a mom and what it’s like to raise her son, York.
In case you missed it, Banks welcomed York by surrogate two years ago and announced the news in January of 2016.
Banks, like Kim Kardashian, had her baby via surrogate due to possible complications during surgery. In an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the reality star revealed that her doctor said another pregnancy would be too much of a risk.
Although it isn’t clear if Banks had the same illness as Kim, it’s clear that she must’ve needed the surrogate to have a child.
While speaking with the reporter, she said she is a “hardworking momma” and plans to set an excellent example of what it’s like to be a person with a tremendous work-ethic.
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. York Banks Asla, welcome to the world.
Banks said to E! that she wants her child to know what it takes to get what you want out of life. The former supermodel said, “that’s how we have these things, and we can travel and get on airplanes.”
Banks said, despite her hard work and constant traveling, she often brings her son along. The host of America’s Next Top Model claimed she wants her child to understand what she’s up to whenever she’s away.
Additionally, Tyra revealed her baby is “the boss” because his demands come front and center. She added, if you’re tired, it doesn’t matter because when the child wants to play, you just have to either way.
