This is the Happiest Valentine’s Day of my life,’ she captioned it. ‘York, Daddy @erikasla and I send you so much love’.
The America’s Next Top Model host and photographer boyfriend Erik Asla welcomed him into the world via surrogate on January 27.

Staring off pensively into the distance, Tyra has either slipped into a daydream or is in an exhausted daze after two weeks of motherhood.
Mom: This is the Happiest Valentine’s Day of my life,’ she wrote. ‘York, Daddy @erikasla and I send you so much love’.
Wearing minimal makeup and with her hair tied up in a bandanna, and the wood panel background almost creating a halo effect, Tyra may have drawn on Madonna and Child artwork as inspiration for her pose.
She also used Instagram to confirm baby York’s arrival two weeks ago, posting a simple picture of his tiny hospital hat.
She wrote: ‘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.’
Tyra, who has been dating the Norwegian for two years, has previously spoken about her struggles to conceive.

She told people in a statement: ‘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.
‘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. 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.’
Last September Tyra broke down in tears on her recently cancelled FABLife television show, as she hit out at social media bullies who constantly demand to know why she has not had any children.
The star, who has had failed IVF treatments in the past, made the emotional proclamation after Chrissy Teigen brought up her own fertility troubles.
Difficulty: Tyra, who has been dating the Norwegian for two years, has previously spoken about her struggles to conceive.
Tyra said: ‘I’m so tired of seeing on my social media, “why don’t you have kids, why don’t you have kids?” ‘You don’t know, you don’t know what I’m going through. You have no idea.’
She then explained how she had been certain she would have a large family for her whole life, and was shocked when it did not turn out that way.
The America’s Next Top Model host said: ‘For a long time, it was so funny, I was 23-years-old, I used to tell myself “in three years I’m going to have kids.”
‘Then I turned 24, “in three years I’m going to have kids.” Every single year I just kept saying that. And then after a while it’s like, now I want to, it’s not so easy.’
