Tyra Banks stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers on Thursday (July 27) evening, and opened up about what forced her to share a picture of her adorable son York back in June!
The 43-year-old entertainer revealed that she hadn’t originally planned on posting any pictures of her 16-month-old child, but that all changed when the paparazzi got involved.
“It wasn’t so much that I was itching for the world to see him,” Tyra began to tell Seth. “I went to a restaurant for Father’s Day with my son and my dad. It was by the ocean and my son was, ‘Awa! Awa! Awa!’ Water. And so I was like, ‘OK, you’re going to get in the water for the first time.’ I slathered him with sunscreen; he was looking purple, ’cause he’s black, so when we put on sunscreen we look purple. And he just was looking crazy—got slammed by waves, sand everywhere.”
“I’m trying to hide him with a blanket. I pull over to the gas station after they get the shot, I text his dad [fashion photographer Erik Asla] and I’m like, ‘I’ve got to put this picture out before the paparazzi. I don’t want them to make money off our child and have the first picture.’ So, I posted the damn picture,” Tyra explained. “The next day, there ain’t no paparazzi pictures, ’cause mama knew how to hide that camera. She’s a supermodel for a reason! And so now his picture is out there and I didn’t need it to be!”
