She recently announced she welcomed a baby boy via surrogate, but this is the first time we've laid eyes on Tyra Banks' baby, York Banks Asla!

Motherhood certainly suits Tyra!

Taking to Instagram on Sunday, the first-time mother shared the first photo of her baby, York, who no doubt already has his 'smize' down pat!

The 42-year-old wrote on the photo sharing site:

"This is the Happiest Valentine's Day of my life. York, Daddy @erikasla and I send you so much love."

Little York is being held close to his mum's chest in the snap as he sleeps, looking VERY cute!

Erik also shared the snap on his own Instagram account and simply captioned it, "Mother and Son."

It was less than a month ago that Tyra announced she and Erik had welcomed their son with another Instagram snap.

The model captioned the photo:

"The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here. He's got my fingers and big eyes and his daddy Erik's mouth and chin. As we thank the angel of a woman that carried our miracle baby boy for us, we pray for everyone who struggles to reach this joyous milestone. York Banks Asla, welcome to the world."

Tyra has been quite open about her struggles with fertility. In 2015, on her show The Fab Life, she broke down while talking about how people constantly asked her why she didn’t have kids. The emotional episode also featured mum-to-be Chrissy Teigen, who alongside Banks urged people not to question why people don’t have kids as you never know what struggles they may be going through.

Congratulations again to the happy family!
