Even celebrity moms have breakdowns
43-year-old model and businesswoman Tyra Banks and her boyfriend of 5 years, 53-year-old photographer Erik Asla, have split shortly after welcoming their child together via surrogate.
Banks, who strongly focused on her career for many years, launching the popular reality TV show ‘America’s Next Top Model’, which is franchised worldwide, opened up about her struggles to conceive in the past.
Sometimes having a family isn’t an option which is readily available to you at the ideal age, and sometimes it’s not readily available at all – but Banks didn’t give up, and early into her 40’s, she was blessed with her “miracle child”, as she calls him.
While she is very busy with her career, her motto towards parenting is “quality over quantity”.
Even if she can’t spend as much time as she would like with her child, she makes sure that the precious moments they have together are dedicated 100% to family time – no emails, phone calls or distractions.
We’re not sure what her plans are for co-parenting with her ex, but this powerful woman will find a way to raise her child with the best upbringing possible.
