Tyra Banks announced the birth of her baby boy in the sweetest way

Welcome to the world, York Banks Asla!

Tyra Banks has not only been extremely open in the past few years about her wish to have a child, but also the difficulty that came with waiting until she was in her forties. But after years of struggle and a public attempt at IVF, Tyra Banks and her boyfriend, Swedish Photographer Erik Asla, just had a baby boy via surrogate. The new mother posted to Instagram to share the happy news.

As adorable as the photo is, it was her caption that will bring tears to the eyes of every human alive.

Banks also made a statement to People about her newborn baby boy and about the many women who struggle with conceiving.

It’s awesome that even in this special moment, Banks has not forgotten the many other women who have had a harder time conceiving. Way to go Banks, and congratulations on your healthy baby!
