AceShowbiz - Tyra Banks' Halloween costume was the same weight as her child. The 48-year-old star - who shares six-year-old son York with ex-boyfriend Erik Asla - has hosted ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" since 2020 and revealed that the black dress with a skeletal trim she donned for the spooky special on Monday, October 31 weighed 40 pounds.
"It's so heavy! It weighs about 40 pounds. But, know what? I think my child weighs about 40 pounds, so I just have to think, 'You're just holding your child!' " she said.
The former "American's Next Top Model" judge - who is now in a relationship with entrepreneur Louis Belanger-Martin - was also seen in a dark crimson jumper with bellbottoms during the second part of the Halloween special and explained that changing outfits mid-show was something she "always" used to do before the ballroom competition moved from ABC to streaming platform Disney+ and lost the commercial time.
She told Entertainment Tonight, "I used to always change clothes every single episode, but I stopped doing that. So, I gotta do the understocking, then I gotta do the fishnets stocking, then I gotta put on the corset, then I gotta take a break. Then, 10 minutes before the live show, [they go] 'Get yo a** up right now, Tyra, it's live! There's no commercials! It's on Disney+, get your a** up, right now!' "
However, the "Life-Size" actress added that she "loves" the "crazy" nature of live television because there is no opportunity to get everything right. She said, "I love live 'cause you can't, like, make it right. I love it! I love the crazy."
