"The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here," Tyra captioned the below post of her son's hospital hat. "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."
