“I’m hearing, ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ and I can’t believe how lucky I am!” the America’s Next Top Model host wrote. “Of all the fashionable hats I wear, I love being a #mother the most. #HappyMothersDay from me and my mama to all the wonderful women of the world!”
In the cute snapshot, Banks, 42, looks ecstatic as she cradles her son in her arms while her mom, Carolyn London, smiles over her shoulder at the tiny bundle of joy.
The supermodel revealed in January that she and boyfriend Erik Asla had welcomed their baby boy via surrogate.
“The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here,” she captioned an Instagram photo of the baby’s knit cap. “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.”
The former FabLife host has been open about her fertility problems.
On an episode of the talk show last year, Banks got emotional as she sympathized with supermodel Chrissy Teigen’s struggles to get pregnant. (The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model welcomed her own little one with husband John Legend this April and also celebrated her first Mother’s Day on Sunday.)
“We’re kind of going through this similar thing with IVF,” Banks said at the time. “And, you know, putting needles in your tummy every day and having to come to work and smile when you feel like you want to throw up and lay down — I can’t believe I’m saying this right now!”
York is the first child for both Banks and her photographer beau, who have been together for two years.
