Television personality, producer, businesswoman, actress, author and former model Tyra Banks was spotted outside the Bel Air Hotel taking her boy, York Banks, out for a stroll. 

Banks wore a bandana matching her boho chic red flowing dress and black leather Gladiator style sandals.

Tyra has been staying at the Bel Air hotel since she evacuated her home due to the California wildfires. Hopefully everything is OK back at her house.

Tyra welcomed York with her then-boyfriend Erik Asla, a Norwegian photographer, in January 2016 via gestational surrogate. The star had previously been open about her struggles with infertility, revealing that she had undergone in vitro fertilization procedures in the hopes of conceiving.

Tyra and Erik have since split up, but are continuing to co-parent York together.


Back in March Tyra gushed about little York saying, “My son is amazing with his colors,” Banks, 44, raved to reporters at the AGTseason 13 red carpet kickoff in Los Angeles on Monday. “He has friends in his classes that are like ‘re-re-red’ and my son is already up to silver and rose and rose gold. And he has been counting to 20 since he was 18 months. So he’s really, really smart.”

“He speaks Spanish, Norwegian and English,” she continued. “He’s a smart one — but he’s still crazy and damn near rolling on the floor and not listening to me most of the time!”
