US-ENTERTAINMENT-HOLLYWOOD-WOMENTyra Banks can add another item to her impressive resume: The supermodel-actress-entrepreneur is a new mom.

Banks revealed in an Instagram post that she and boyfriend Erik Asla have welcomed a son, York Banks Asla. A rep for the supermodel confirmed the news to People, and said the bouncing baby boy was born via gestational surrogate.


"The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here," Banks wrote on Instagram of her new addition. "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."

The 42-year-old star had previously opened up about her struggles with infertility, telling People last year that she had undergone several IVF procedures without success. Now, Banks and Asla are finally parents.

"We are so excited for our new baby boy bundle of joy," Banks told People in a statement this week. "The journey to now has not been an easy process, as I've shared before. But there was a beautiful bright light at the end of the tunnel for me and his father, Erik."

Congrats to the happy family!
