Tyra Banks stunned many when she introduced her son, 18-month-old York Banks-Asla to the world for over a year after his birth.But now,she says she wishes she didn't .She also explained why she posted that lone photo.

Speaking to Seth Meyers on NBC's Late Night Thursday, the 43-year-old America's Got Talent host explained

"It wasn't so much that I was itching for the world to see him. 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," Banks said. "And he just was looking crazy—got slammed by waves, sand everywhere."..

 
As they were leaving, Banks spotted the paparazzi taking pictures.

"I'm trying to hide him with a blanket. I pull over 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," she recalled. "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!"
