According to Banks, her gorgeous toddler thinks that every day is Christmas. He is overwhelmed by the early displays of Christmas lights and pageantry, and keeps asking his mother "Is it Christmas today?"
Kelly Ripa loved Bank's story and told her it would be a great theme for her next movie, a world in which it would be Christmas every day.

CLASH WITH RIVAL SUPERMODEL NAOMI CAMPBELL
Tyra Banks made history by being the first African-American woman to be photographed for the prestigious covers of GQ Magazine and Sports Illustrated.
Banks was considered a rival and a threat by the English-Jamaican supermodel Naomi Campbell.
"It was very difficult...some of the lowest times of my life dealing with that, so I don't condone her actions or her response, but I understand where it comes from because the world is saying you're not going to have your spot, we're going to take your money, we're going to take your fame."
Campbell used her fame and influence to block Banks from being selected for high-profile fashion shows where she might challenge her status as the world's premier Black supermodel.
Years later, in 2005, Banks talked openly to Campbell on her talk show "Tyra" and the two women achieved closure on their decades of a rivalry fueled by the press.
