After Chrissy Teigen opened up about her obstacles at getting pregnant, Tyra decided to also share her own personal hurdles. The supermodel told People, " When I turned 40, the one thing I was not happy about is that I did not have kids," "When you're like, 'Okay, I'm just going to do it,' then it's not so easy as you get older."
