We were rooting for you…
Tyra Banks and Erik Asla have decided to go their separate ways, according to Us Weekly. Sources tell the publication there’s not bad blood between the pair, who dated for five years.
“She and Erik are friends. The break up was drama-free,” the source told Us.
Banks, 43, and Asla has been raising a baby boy together, whom they welcomed via surrogate in January 2016.
It’s unclear how the duo intend to co-parent in the wake of their alleged split. Us Weekly’s source did, however, note that the “America’s Next Top Model” host “loves being a mom and is very hands on.”
It does not appear parenting played a role in their decision to call it quits.
Banks, who is notoriously private about both her son and her love life, opened up about son York Banks Asla’s arrival in a heartfelt Instagram post shortly after his birth.
She called their surrogate an “angel of a woman,” revealing details about which features her little bundle of joy had inherited from which parent.
“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,” she wrote.
“York Banks Asla, welcome to the world.”
Banks and her longtime beau met on the set of the Norwegian version of “Americas Next Top Model.”
