The 42-year-old, who has spoken of her difficulty in conceiving previously, posted a picture of a minuscule hat on Instagram, along with a caption sharing the good news:

"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."

"I Can't Believe I'm Saying This"

Banks had previously spoken of the trouble she had conceiving with boyfriend of two years, Erik Asla.

While talking on her chat show, Fablife, she explained that she was using IVF treatment in an effort to conceive. She said:

"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!"

It's fantastic news all the hard work has payed off - congratulations Tyra!
