York is the 42-year-old supermodel and businesswoman’s first child. Asla added, “Witnessing the dawn of life is possibly life’s greatest gift.”

In an exclusive statement to People, Banks shared, “We are so excited for our new baby boy bundle of joy. 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.”

In the past, Banks opened up about her issues getting pregnant and using IVF, telling People, “When I turned 40, the one thing I was not happy about is that I did not have kids. When you’re like, ‘Okay, I’m just going to do it,’ then it’s not so easy as you get older.”

 

Congratulations, Tyra!
