Who knew babies could be so profitable?

According to new mom Tyra Banks, her son York has caused growth both emotionally AND financially. Apparently little Yorkie is doing wonders for Banks' already profitable makeup business, which is quite the accomplishment for a kid only a few months old!

Explaining exactly how her little one manages to be such an asset, the model reasoned that motherhood has inspired her to let go more. Translation: baby York is teaching his momma an important lesson in going with the flow!

T.B. revealed:

"Well, I'm on maternity leave right now, just taking a break. I really now am empowering my team. I'm understanding delegation, understanding that I don't have to do everything to make something successful. I'm on maternity leave and Tyra Beauty is kickin' butt!"

Woot! We're all about female empowerment!

Elaborating on her new mantra, Banks gushed:

America's Next Top Model Saved From Cancellation — On A Brand New Network With A Brand New Host!

One day you're in, and the next day… you're still in?

We were surprised — but not too saddened — when we originally found out that America's Next Top Model had been cancelled by The CW after 22 cycles.

The modeling competition suffered a serious drop in quality once it introduced public voting in Season 19, so we felt as though leaving on a high note with Nyle DiMarco as the final winner was a good end for the iconic reality TV show.

Well… it seems as though we were wrong, because despite abysmal ratings, VH1 has decided to give ANTM a second chance at life by snatching it up from the CW's trash with a 14-episode pickup.

Tyra Banks confirmed the news in a statement on Tuesday, saying:

It seems like EVERYONE was surprised by Tyra Banks' baby news!

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!

no title

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?

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.
