In celebration of Father’s Day 2017, supermodel and America’s Next Top Model producer Tyra Banks shared a rare snapshot of 18-month-old son, York Banks Asla. Not surprisingly, York is an incredibly beautiful child. Even less surprisingly, at the ripe old age of 18 months, he has already perfected Banks’ patented “smize.”
“To all the amazing daddies out there,” Banks wrote, “that love their kids unconditionally like my mommy’s daddy and my daddy, too…HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! -York”
Banks shocked the world in January of 2016, when she announced partner Erik Asla and herself had welcomed the boy via surrogate.
“The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here,” Banks wrote. “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. York Banks Asla, welcome to the world.”
The personality has generally kept her son out of the spotlight, sharing only this pic of York and herself when the little one was a newborn.
One thing’s for sure: York has a future in modeling that’s almost as bright as his striking baby blues.
