Well Miss Tyra sure did a great job of keeping this one under wraps.

Just last night the supermodel and mogul revealed that she and boyfriend Erik Asla are the proudest of parents to a son via surrogate. A simple pink and blue baby hospital cap was all the image needed, but we can’t wait to see the combination of these two beautiful parents.

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. York Banks Asla, welcome to the world.

Now, her leaving her talk show “The FAB Life” really makes sense…she has baby boy on her mind.

Just back in September of 2015, Tyra spoke with People magazine about her struggles with fertility.

“When I turned 40, the one thing I was not happy about is that I did not have kids,” Banks tells People. “I’m like, ‘Damn, the clock is ticking!’ ”

Banks, 41, reveals that since age 24 she would tell herself, ‘I will have kids in three years,’ but being so busy with work, she never found the time. When she was finally ready to become pregnant, she says, it just hasn’t happened.

She has been dating her boyfriend, photographer Erik Asla for two years, and has undergone IVF procedures in hopes of conceiving. She says Asla has been a major support through some “not so happy, traumatic moments,” and they look forward to growing old together.

Congrats to Tyra and Erik!
