Tyra Banks doesn’t want her son York to follow her into the modelling industry

OHMYGOSSIP — Tyra Banks doesn’t want her son to follow her into the modelling industry. The 44-year-old beauty has a two-year-old son called York with her former partner Erik Asla – but Tyra has admitted she’d be loathed to see her baby boy try his hand at modelling, because she worries how it might change him.

She explained: “Being a mom and raising a son … I just don’t want him to be a model.” But then, during her interview with People magazine, Tyra tried to apply a bit of reverse psychology on her son. She continued: “No actually, let me change that. Baby, I want you to model. I want you to get up and model every single day. Because they rebel right? They rebel. I just think that for guys, being a male model, what does that do to you?”

Meanwhile, Tyra previously admitted that she’s been “suffering” as a working mother. The world-famous star conceded it’s been a challenge to balance her busy work schedule with raising her child, following her split from her boyfriend of five years.

Asked about the biggest surprise she’s encountered as a mother, Tyra explained: “Just how tired [I am]. I’m tired right now because I was up all night. He was waking up all night last night, and [needed a] bottle at 5:30 this morning.”

Tyra is lucky to have a strong support network of people around her and, despite the challenges she’s faced, the model considers struggling to be part and parcel of being a working mother. She shared: “I do have a lot of help, but I don’t have help all the time. So those moments when I’m like, in it and suffering, I’m like, ‘This is what I’m supposed to be doing as a mama.'”
