Kate Upton is the cover girl for 2017 for “Sports Illustrated” swimsuit issue. After her “Sports Illustrated” debut in the 2011 edition and the cover in 2012 and 2013, the model got her third cover for SI issue. Upton announced the news Tuesday night at “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

“If I got the cover, I would be really excited. It would be really amazing,” Kate Upton said while shooting for the 2012 SI issue. “It’s always what I’ve talked about. I grew up in an American family, so it always was on the coffee table and to be that girl on the magazine on the coffee table would just be really groundbreaking for me.”

“I almost think the body is art, everyone’s perspective is their own and it comes from their own place.” “People are naturally tall, short, skinny, curvy, whatever. So I feel like limiting yourself to one label isn’t right, you can be everything.”
