AceShowbiz - Tyra Banks is proud of her body. The "America's Next Top Model" creator has put on some weight and she makes no effort to hide it as she displays her fuller body in new Instagram pictures. The star goes makeup-free as she slips into a flower pattern leotard.
Tyra turned 48 on December 4 and the photos were posted to mark her big day. "It's my BIRTHDAY!" she wrote in her caption. "And every year this BODY of mine keeps changing. My body of work and my body ody ody. My body is fuller. And so is my mind."
She added, "Happy Birthday to all my fellow Sagittarius out there. Here's to growing together, in more ways than one."
Unfortunately, her birthday was marred by rumors that she might get axed from "Dancing with the Stars" after hosting the show for two seasons. According to The Sun, TV bosses are hunting for a new host following low ratings. They hope to sign "at least one major star" for the next installment.
Tyra Banks was scrutinized during the latest season for some of her awkward interactions with the contestants. In one episode, she shooed Olivia Jade after her elimination. In another episode, the host made cringey comments after a sick Suni Lee rushed offstage to vomit following her performance.
When the contestant was back on stage, Tyra said, "Suni, I got to ask you. I know you've been struggling all day and, like, dude is like, you're throwing up. This is live TV and you ran off!"
