Tyra Banks’ multitask struggles
Tyra Banks can’t multitask now she has a son.
The ‘America’s Next Top Model’ host – who has nine-month-old York with her partner Erik Asla – used to easily be able to juggle a few different things at the same time but admits it has become quite difficult now she has a baby.
She said: "My secret to balance is to focus on one thing at a time. I used to be the most amazing multitasker, doing three things at once. Not anymore, now that I have my son.
"I think that’s Mother Nature’s way of saying this life you created takes all of your brain power. Now I’m like, ‘Mommy’s going on a conference call,’ and I give him to his dad."
Whilst she struggles to multitask, the 42-year-old star has managed to speed up her beauty routine so she can get back to her son quicker.
She added: "My son, as he gets older, he’s getting a lot more clingy so he wants to be held a lot more and be close to Mommy a lot more, so I have to do things fast.
"We have a five-minute TYover at Tyra Beauty and that is like my savior because I have to slap it on like it’s war paint like, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. And then pick him up or else he gets crazy and demanding Mommy’s attention, so I have to go fast."
Meanwhile, Tyra is keen to teach her son to look for the inner beauty in women when he grows up.
She told People magazine: "I want to teach him that he doesn’t need to go after chicks that are just cookie-cutter. I want him to understand that beauty has so many different shapes and sizes and colors and features.
"I hope that he can appreciate beauty like his mom does, like I do – that I see beauty in things that the world doesn’t necessarily tell us are beautiful. That is why I created ‘America’s Next Top Model’ – to really showcase all different types of beauty and to put them on a pedestal, things that aren’t necessarily cookie-cutter. So I hope he is able to see that and appreciate that."
