It’s been a busy week at the celebrity maternity ward with two superstars welcoming new additions to their respective families. Tyra Banks and boyfriend Erik Asla welcomed baby boy York Banks Asla via surrogate while One Direction star, Louis Tomlinson and former flame, Briana Jungwirth welcomed baby boy Freddie Reign.
We at Babyology love birth news and this week there is certainly something to celebrate.
America’s Next Top Model host, Tyra Banks, who recently revealed her struggles with fertility, took to Instagram to share an image of a baby beanie and an announcement that, “The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here.”
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.
York Banks Asla’s arrival is a beautiful surprise after Tyra recently expressed the pain she has experienced with fertility struggles.
“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,” she wrote on Instagram.

Tyra isn’t the only one celebrating the arrival of a little man. One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson, 24, also welcomed a boy, Freddie Reign, with former flame, Briana Jungwirth, also 24.
While the couple are no longer together and Louis has a girlfriend, Danielle Campbell, 20, the new mum and dad have expressed mutual respect for one another with reports that Louis is paying a hefty sum for child support and for a place for Briana and his son to live in California.
Louis shared an image of his adorable little man on Instagram and more than 1.5 million One Direction fans immediately went baby-crazy. While Freddie was born last week, this is the first image of the “little lad” after the star confirmed the birth via Twitter: “I’m pleased to say my baby son was born yesterday :) He is healthy and pretty amazing, I’m very happy!!”
Congratulations to Tyra, Erik, Louis and Briana and welcome to the world York and Freddie!
