Tyra Banks Shares First Photo of Son York on ‘Happiest Valentine’s Day’ of Her Life
What a little cutie!
York is swaddled and nuzzled into his mother’s chest in the model and media mogul’s new Instagram photo.
Banks, 42, stared off into the distance in the image, wearing only a simple gray sweatshirt and a brightly patterned head scarf.
“This is the Happiest Valentine’s Day of my life,” Banks wrote. “York, Daddy @erikasla and I send you so much love.”

Banks and boyfriend, Norwegian photographer Erik Asla, struggled with fertility before deciding to use a surrogate.
“As I gaze into the beautiful eyes of my son, I think about all the people who struggle with fertility or carrying a child and continue to pray for them every day,” Banks previously told PEOPLE in a statement. “My hopes and dreams are filled with well wishes that they get to feel what my little treasure, York Banks Asla, feels like in my arms.”
She added that the little cutie has her “fingers and big eyes” and Asla’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.”
