It’s been over a year since supermodel Tyra Banks welcomed her baby boy via surrogate. She and husband Erik Asla have been keeping him to themselves, but this Father’s Day, Banks posted a rare photo of the now one-and-a-half year old, named York. With parents like Banks and Asla, he was fated to be gorgeous, but who knew he’d catch on to modeling so fast?
Fans were quick to notice that York already has his mother’s famous “smize” down pat. The term “smize” was coined on Tyra Banks’ television show, America’s Next Top Model. She uses it to teach aspiring models to smile with their eyes (Get it? Smize.) and, more generally, to be expressive in the face.
To all the amazing daddies out there that love their kids unconditionally like my mommy’s daddy and my daddy, too…HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! -York💛
