We reported last July that the pair were struggling to keep their relationship on track following the birth of their son, York Banks Asla, in January 2016.
York was born via a surrogate, and Asla has daughters from a previous relationship, to whom Banks has played stepmother.
Now we’re told they have decided to go their separate ways and Asla has moved out of their LA mansion.
A source close to the “America’s Got Talent” host told us, “It came drama-free and they’re co-parenting their young son.”
The source said the pair remain friends, and Banks continues to work with Asla professionally.
“He is slated to shoot the photos for the opening credits of . . . the upcoming ‘America’s Next Top Model,’” said the insider.
Banks is returning to the long-running modeling reality competition after a hiatus.
Asla has shot for Allure, Harper’s Bazaar and German Vogue. He met Banks when he was a guest on the Norwegian version of “America’s Next Top Model.”
Back in 2015, Banks said, “We balance each other . . . He’s creative. I’m creative. We just have fun. He’s my best friend.”
Amid the breakup, she also put her Battery Park City apartment on the market for $17.5 million in May.
Reps declined to comment.
Well, they made an adorable little boy. We wish them the best!
