While Tyra Banks has been open about her fertility struggles and her decision to use a surrogate to bring her little one into the world, she’s been relatively protective when it comes to York’s privacy, only sharing a small glimpse at her growing baby boy here and there. But now, she’s finally shared a pic of her son for a very special reason.

“To all the amazing daddies out there that love their kids unconditionally like my mommy’s daddy and my daddy, too … HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! -York💛,” Banks captioned the image she posted on Instagram of her 16-month-old son. Opting to share the first full-on photo of her kiddo on Father’s Day is special indeed. Crafting the message so that it’s coming from York himself? Well, that’s just too darn cute.

And while this little guy is still just a baby, we can’t help but notice a serious smize radiating from his gorgeous eyes.

Banks’ boyfriend Erik Asla, a photographer who has three daughters from a previous relationship, also shared the pic of York with the message, “As a father of four, Father’s Day means I get four times the love. And little wooden sticks from this guy.” Too cute!

Also, we’re pretty sure it’s safe to say that beautiful little York will surely grow up with serious runway potential, just like his supermodel mom.

Are you struck by little York’s smize? Let us know @BritandCo!
