Erik Asla, who is in his early fifties, has been dating the smoking hot and elegantly beautiful supermodel, Tyra Banks, 42. They first met on the sets of Norway’s Next Top Model in 2013. But they were not seen together for about 6 months in 2015, which made people think that they had a breakup.
However, they were still together, going strong and steady in their relationship. In June 2015, they were seen shopping for home furnishing in Los Angeles. Soon, Dailymail wrote an article suggesting they were living together,
Apparently, this is not the only thing we will be talking about today. Do you remember the time when news came that Erik’s girlfriend Tyra wanted to have kids but was having fertility issues?
In an interview with People.com on Sept 2015, she said,
"When I turned 40, the one thing I was not happy about is that I did not have kids. I'm like, 'Damn, the clock is ticking!”
She also revealed in the interview that she had undergone the procedure of IVF in the hopes to conceive a child.
"I've had some not happy moments with that, very traumatic moments. It's difficult as you get older. It's not something that can just happen. I don't just want one child. I want a litter! And I want to be the kind of mom where my child can come to me for anything."
After all the stress and struggle he and his girlfriend went through, they welcomed a child in January 2016 with a bundle of joy via surrogate. The couple shared the happy news through Tyra’s Instagram, posting a picture of her baby son's hat.
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.
