Tyra Banks surprised fans, followers and the media when she announced on her Instagram that she and boyfriend Erik Asla are now parents to a new baby boy -- and we absolutely love the way she did it.

As you might have gathered from the caption, she and Asla had their baby -- named York Banks Asla -- by surrogate, which is something they chose to do after Tyra's public struggle with attempts to conceive.

"When I turned 40, the one thing I was not happy about is that I did not have kids," she told People last year. "When you're like, 'Okay, I'm just going to do it,' then it's not so easy as you get older."

We admire her openness about this common-but-not-always-talked-about issue of infertility, and we also admire the adorably simple and discreet way of introducing baby York. Go Tyra!
