Tyra Banks is discovering a new realm of motherhood now that her son, York, is approaching the Terrible Twos.
“I’m in the terrible 19-20-month-old thing right now,” she tells ET Online. “My mom says his personality is me now, and so she has no idea what he is going to be years from now. Like, is he going to be buck wild, insane, crazy?” No, not crazy, just adventurous, Tyra!
Banks goes on to tell ET, “I’m tired right now because I was up all night. He was waking up all night last night, and [needed a] bottle at 5:30 this morning. I do have a lot of help, but I don’t have help all the time,” she explains. “So those moments when I’m like, in it and suffering, I’m like, ‘This is what I’m supposed to be doing as a mama.'”
Tyra’s experience as a mompreneur is no doubt rewarding and all about setting priorities. “It’s all about quality, not quantity,” she reveals. “I’m guilty of, ‘Oh, I’m here, but I’m here answering emails.’ So I’ve actually taken email off of my phone so that when I’m with my son, I’m with him.”
York is Tyra Banks and her boyfriend Erik Asla’s only child. He celebrates his second birthday in January.
