In the photo, Tyra and York were looking into a huge fish tank and they were silhouetted by the electric blue water in front of them. 

York was clinging onto his mummy and was clearly mesmerised by the creatures swimming behind the glass. 

He wore a pair of shorts, a vest and sandals and his gorgeous head of hair matched Tyra’s in colour.

She previously opened up about how rewarding - but tiring - motherhood is.

"The hardest part about motherhood is being really, really tired," she explained to E! News. "Sometimes you just are exhausted.

"You want to sleep. Your baby has been up all night saying 'Mommy, mommy, mommy’ every three hours. But when it hits 5:45 and your baby is like, 'It's time to play, it’s time to hang out, it’s time to wrestle on the floor,' there is no amount of tired where you say no. Even if you wanted to, you can’t."
