Tyra sent out a special Valentine’s Day treat to her followers this weekend, in the form of a little bundle of joy! The supermodel and her Norwegian photographer boyfriend, Erik Alsa, welcomed their beautiful son, York Alsa into the world on January 26th of this year. And this was the first time we’ve got to see him!
Tyra has opened up about her issues with fertility in the past – if you didn’t get the news, check out her interview with FABLife where she shared the story about her journey alongside mommy-to-be, Chrissy Teigan who also has her own story. In the interview, she reveals her prolonged struggle with conceiving a pregnancy.
Determined to start a family with the love of her life, Banks and Alsa opted to take matters into their own hands and hired a surrogate to carry baby York.
And it’s clear that, by the glimmer in her eye in the photo she shared via her Instagram this Valentine’s Day, that she is one proud mommy. The caption of the photo reads:
“This is the Happiest Valentine’s Day of my life. York, Daddy @erikasla and I send you so much love.”
Hollywood Unlocked congratulates Tyra and Erik for not letting the odds defeat you and doing whatever it takes to make their dreams come true. They’re inspiring those with a similar story and we wholeheartedly wish them all the best!
