We can always count on Tyra Banks to keep it real! The model turned media mogul who is presently promoting her innovative new talk show “Tyra presents FABLife” has revealed her infertility struggles.
Tyra revealed to People Magazine;
“Since I was 24, I used to say every year, ‘I will have kids in three years,’ ” she says. “I kept saying it over and over again. Because my business is very entrepreneurial. I’m not for hire, so I have to do everything. I kept trying to find that time for that to happen.”
Tyra who is 41 and has been in a serious relationship with photographer Erik Asla for 2 years, tearfully reveals that she has undergone IVF procedures in hopes of conceiving.
“I’ve had some not happy moments with that, very traumatic moments,” she says. “It’s difficult as you get older. It’s not something that can just happen.”
However, Tyra still hopes for a large family!
“I hope [for kids], she says. “I don’t just want one child. I want a litter! And I want to be the kind of mom where my child can come to me for anything.”
