Banks recently told People that York has been traveling with her for AGT.

“My schedule tends to get insane, so I’m extremely lucky that I can bring him to work with me. He’s already making friends with the crew and loves running around,” she said. “He is obsessed with big vehicles, so watching the production trucks move is a treat for him.”
