It's only been 9 months since Tyra Banks welcomed her and partner Erik Asla's newborn son York into the world, but it seems like the star is already a pro at balancing her career and new motherhood.

The 42-year-old beauty recently opened up to People about finding equilibrium in her life, and she admits that it has come with a significant amount of change. "My secret to balance is to focus on one thing at a time," the TV star shared. "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."

She also revealed that she's gotten much quicker at doing everyday tasks to keep up, and that includes simplifying her beauty routine. "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," she said. "I’ve been wearing a lot of wigs. My assistant thinks that my son is going to pull off my wig in public because he holds my hair like reins on a horse. I pin it on really well so it doesn’t move, but I feel like one day it might, just a little bit."

The mogul is also excited to instill in him a love for individual beauty as he gets older. "I want to teach him that he doesn’t need to go after chicks that are just cookie-cutter," she said. "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."

But are there more babies in Banks's future? "I don’t know," she revealed. "We’ll see. We shall see. I’m not sure."
