Hannah Davis stopped by the "Fox and Friends" couch this morning to react to being unexpectedly chosen for the Sports Illustrated cover that had everyone talking last week. 

Davis said she was brought to tears when the editors told her that she was chosen for the cover of the annual swimsuit issue.

"It was really overwhelming. ... I was totally blindsided," said Davis.


Thank you to my @si_swimsuit and @imgmodels family! I am honored to be your 2015 cover girl! Wow!! #SISwim

Davis said her photo shoot for the magazine was on a farm, so she assumed a picture from one of the other beach shoots would be chosen for the cover.

The 24-year-old Virgin Islands native said she admires past cover girls like Tyra Banks, Christie Brinkley and Kathy Ireland and hopes to have similar success as her career goes forward. 

She explained that her parents moved to St. Thomas after honeymooning there and that she moved to New York when she turned 18. 

And what about her very famous boyfriend?

"I'm very happy, personally and professionally," she said, when asked about her relationship with former Yankees star Derek Jeter.
