Behind the scenes with Genie Bouchard for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is known for featuring a bevvy of stunning models with super-slim figures, but past year, size 14 model Ashley Graham became the first woman of her size to score a cover of the iconic publication.

She shared the news on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where three different covers were revealed to viewers.

In 2015, Wozniacki's first time working with the magazine, she showed off an array of white bathing suits that must have impressed the Sports Illustrated staff because she has become a regular. "It's completely warm and lovely", she said.

Possibly the happiest person about Upton's three-peat is her fiance, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander. It's not just looking pretty in a bikini, I'll tell you that, " she says, adding: "But they knew bringing me on the shoot that I'm one of those girls who's down to do whatever".

Upton will be featured on the cover for the third time.

As for Ferguson, her the fourth-time SI Swimsuit model said her family is always supportive (including her dad), but he would rather not stare at her shots in the magazine all day.

"The women of SI Swimsuit 2017 are a collection of change agents, pioneers, power brokers and breakout stars-in-waiting who have in their own way redefined the cultural conversation around beauty", Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Editor MJ Day said in a statement. Kate doesn't waste a moment in her drive to be the best, and doesn't give herself a break in pursuing perfection.

There was a ton of hype about Christie Brinkley, who is appearing in the issue at the age of 63-years old. Upton actually got three different covers this year, none of which feature a swimsuit top (which related to why Upton got the cover in the first place).

On two of the three covers, the model wore some of the smallest swimsuits ever made and used just one arm to cover her chest. It's okay to look good and feel good and I'm strong.
