"Thank you to our amazing surrogate for bringing him here safely surrounded by so much love," she added in her caption.
Besides, Tobin did a quick Q&A session via Instagram stories, where she talked about the baby and the process behind his birth.
Replying to one of the questions, she stated she was in the delivery room when the surrogate mother gave birth to the little one.
"Are you struggling with a connection since you didn't physically carry him?" another follower asked, to which she responded by saying that she didn't have any issues with bonding with the baby.
She wrote, "Not even a little. For some reason I was never concerned about this factor because I have parents in my life who had their children all types of ways and they are all equally as bonded."
As per her, she and Martin made an embryo during their IVF process, due to which the baby has the genes of both mother and father.
