Tyra Banks Becomes First Time Mum Via Surrogacy

tyra banks

It’s all about the babies this morning. First we have Louis Tomlinson of One Direction fame sharing the first photo of his ridiculously adorable baby boy, named Freddie, and now it’s on to Tyra Banks, who’s just welcomed her baby boy into the world.

The 42-year-old superstar took to share her joyous news after her widely discussed issues with getting pregnant. After several attempts, Banks and her partner Erik Asla decided to go down the route of surrogacy, and they could not be more thrilled to finally meet their long-awaited little dude.

Tyra took to Instagram where, no doubt, she will inspire countless other couples who have faced the same difficulties. Above all, she is most thankful to the ‘angel’ who carried their baby for the full nine months. Sharing the news, she captioned a cute little baby hat photo with the message: ?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.?

How lovely is that?

Tyra’s story is proof that there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. We wish them every ounce of joy as their new journey begins.

When you gots to go but your nails say NO!
