But I won’t be having any other kids. I think if I waited 6 more months it wouldn’t have been possible.” Banks said her mother Carolyn is helping her raise her son. Banks created the highly successful reality show, ‘America’s Next Top Model’ in 2003. She hosted the show and produced it, and acted as a mentor for the contestants who had dreams of becoming a model.
