Tyra Banks Bio: Age, Parents, Education
Tyra Banks was born in Inglewood, California on 4 December 1973 as Tyra Lynne Banks. Her father Donald Banks is a computer consultant and her mother Carolyn London, a medical photographer.
Tyra's parents separated when she was just 6 years old, but Laura expressed that she was not negatively affected by the separation because she was not old enough to assess the situation.
Born to elite intellectual parents, it was quite a surprise that Tyra went on to pursue a career in fashion and TV.
Tyra during her early years attended John Burroughs Middle School and graduated from Immaculate High School in Los Angeles. She started modeling and being a fashionista when she was being schooled in LA when she was just 15.
Tyra Likes Being Fat, Weight Gain
While appearing at the Live with Kelly and Michael show in September 2015, Tyra after watching her clip from 1995 revealed that she looked better after gaining weight on her body and face. In the show, Tyra also said that she felt like a different person after the weight gain.
Tyra, who stands at the height of 1.8 meters (five feet 10 inches), was even once body shamed for her weight gain but she slammed the bullies by merely asking the haters to kiss her "fat a**." Tyra has not only made headlines because of her weight gain but also due to the issues regarding her fertility.
Tyra Banks Doesn't Want A Second Child Anymore
Tyra, since she was 24, had a dream of being a mother and raising a child but due to all the busy schedules it didn't happen in her early age, and when she had the time, she found out that there were fertility issues.
Tyra even underwent IVF treatments in hopes of bearing a child with her then-boyfriend Norwegian photographer Erik Asla and getting pregnant but could not succeed.
Later, Tyra and Erik decided to have a baby via surrogacy and finally welcomed their first child, York Banks Asla in January 2016. Soon after some months of welcoming York, the Life & Style Magazine reported that the couple was ready to have a second child through surrogacy.
One of the insiders of the magazine even said that Tyra was expecting a daughter for the second time.

But the buzzing news of Tyra having a second child soon faded away when the news of Tyra breaking up with her baby daddy swirled Tabloids, without any given reasons. The former couples were together for five long years before ultimately ending their relationship.
Though the duo finished their affair back in 2017, it has come to the limelight that both of them will co-parent their young son and will continue to have a professional relationship. Erik shoots the opening credits for America’s Next Top Model.
Tyra has even openly talked about the fact that she can't be a mother to any kids now. While talking about her sterility with the aol.com on 6 April 2018, Tyra revealed that her years-long procedure in-vitro-fertilization failed each time and she doesn't have any frozen embryo to make a baby.
Luckily, she has York to look after as a single mother while reasonably balancing personal life and professional career.
