Apart from unveiling a new look, Tyra also spoke about motherhood and the challenges of taking care of a baby during the red carpet event. She even shared how her son York has changed the way she handled her business and career responsibilities. Tyra shared in an interview with E! News that she has learned to empower her team after York’s arrival to her and boyfriend Erik Asla’s lives.
“I'm understanding delegation, understanding that I don't have to do everything to make something successful. I'm on maternity leave and Tyra Beauty is kickin' b---!” the supermodel mom stated. She even shared that her team has already surpassed several of their work goals.
She also mentioned that it was a challenge balancing work and taking care of baby, especially with the new parents lacking much needed sleep. However, she commented that her photographer boyfriend Erik also does his share in taking care of baby York at night. The supermodel stated that her boyfriend “does about 40 percent diaper duty at night,” while she completes the rest.
Tyra and Erik welcomed their first son York on Jan. 27 through a surrogate mother. Over the several months, the supermodel has been battling fertility struggles and has even tried several methods to become pregnant. However, her efforts proved futile until she decided to have the baby through a surrogate.
