Tyra Banks and her longtime boyfriend Erik Asla have called it quits.
According to Page Six, the couple began struggling as far back as last July, following the birth of their son, York Banks Asla.
The pair was quite successful at keeping their relationship under wraps; they dated for nearly four years. Now, it appears as though Asla has moved out of the home they shared in Los Angeles, a source tells People. Still, the two remain friends and will continue to work together professionally, the entertainment news outlet revealed.
As previously reported, the “America’s Next Top Model” host and her photographer beau welcomed York via gestational surrogate in January 2016. As fans may already know, Banks, 43, has previously opened up about her struggles with infertility, revealing that she had undergone IVF procedures in the hopes of conceiving.
“We are so excited for our new baby boy bundle of joy,” she told People after her son was born. “The journey to now has not been an easy process, as I’ve shared before. But there was a beautiful bright light at the end of the tunnel for me and his father, Erik.”
“As I gaze into the beautiful eyes of my son, I think about all the people who struggle with fertility or carrying a child and continue to pray for them every day,” added Banks. “My hopes and dreams are filled with well wishes that they get to feel what my little treasure, York Banks Asla, feels like in my arms.”
Banks also took to Instagram to announce her son’s birth, revealing that he has her fingers and “big eyes” and “daddy Erik’s mouth and chin.”
“The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here,” she wrote. “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.”
