Tyra Banks News Archive
While we were shocked to learn that Tyra and her boyfriend Erik Asla gave birth to a baby boy via a surrogate, so were her family and friends.
For those who don't know Banks struggled with infertility for YEARS. Considering the model's past personal upsets, she was hesitant to share the good news too soon.
A source exclusively confided to Entertainment Tonight:
"Implanted embryos weren't working for her to carry. She has been harvesting eggs for the last 18 months to make this dream a reality. The reason she kept it so private is because the heartbreak has been so intense with many false starts and failed attempts, that she didn't want to say anything until the baby actually arrived. She kept the secret from even her closest friends until yesterday, and reached out to a small circle right before she announced to the world."
Aw. It makes sense why T.B. wanted to wait.
The friend added:
"She is great with kids and always wanted to be a mother."
It sounds like baby York Banks Asla is one lucky little guy!
Congrats again, Tyra!

Tyra Banks, Jessica Alba, Snooki, & Kyle Richards — Celebrity Apprentice Reveals Its Star-Studded Lineup Of Contestants & Advisers!
This cast is pretty stacked!
Tyra Banks shocked us all when she announced that she was quitting FABLife just a few months after it began, but now that the daytime talk show has been cancelled, we think the former America's Next Top Model host made the right choice.
That's because it was announced on Wednesday that the 42-year-old supermodel, as well as Jessica Alba, Warren Buffett, Steve Ballmer, and Patrick Knapp Schwarzenegger will be joining Arnold Schwarzenegger in the board room this season on The Apprentice!
Tyra will be replacing Ivanka Trump as an adviser for the reality TV show's 15th season, showing that the Peacock Network clearly wants to sever all ties with the Trump name.
So now that we know who will be advising the contestants… who will actually be competing for the title?
Ch-ch-check out the full Celebrity Apprentice 2016 cast list (below)!!!
What a pleasant surprise!
On Wednesday, Tyra Banks shocked her fans when she announced that her and boyfriend Erik Asla had a baby boy through a surrogate mother!
The former supermodel said
No, she's not getting fiery revenge for her show getting cancelled… probably. LOLz!
Chrissy Teigen was just showing the audience how to replace butter with a little healthier beeswax in a FABLife cooking segment on Tuesday when the skillet got too hot, and the entire kitchen filled with smoke!
We're sure it's just a coincidence it was the same day it was announced the lifestyle show formerly led by Tyra Banks was ending after just one season.
Srsly though, if there were more WTF moments like this maybe the ratings wouldn't have been so bad?
Ch-ch-check out the scary but silly segment (below)!
Turns out FABLife will have a short life.
On Tuesday, Disney-ABC Domestic Television announced that the syndicated daytime talk show has been cancelled.
According to executive Janice Marinelli:
"We're extremely proud of everyone involved with the show and would like to thank them for all of their contributions and tireless efforts… We are especially appreciative of our talented and dynamic co-hosts Chrissy Teigen, Joe Zee, Leah Ashley and Lauren Makk, and we would also like to extend a huge thanks to our station partners for all of their support."
We guess the show wasn't so fab after all…

Where there's a will, there's a runway?
Apparently, ANTM was The CW's most watched show on the Internet, so the network believes it'll be a good investment.
There's no word on whether Tyra Banks will be attached — though she did quit FABLife at the perfect time for it — but if she is a part of the new season, we really hope she gets rid of the ridiculous point system!
We actually kind of hope this news isn't true because Nyle DiMarco was such a good note to end on…
But maybe VH1 execs will have some new ideas to breathe fresh life into the formerly fabulous fare?
