Kate Upton appeared on Wednesday’s “Today” show to discuss landing the cover of the 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. Watch the interview in the video below!
“Growing up in such a sports oriented family, Sports Illustrated always meant to much so me, seeing these amazing women who were so confident and loved their bodies,” the supermodel said on the morning talk show. “I feel honored to be a part of the issue.” This marks Upton third time gracing the cover of the magazine’s Swimsuit edition, having previously scored back-to-back covers in 2012 and 2013.
Upton went on to compliment 63-year-old Christie Brinkley, who appears inside the magazine, for the longevity of her modeling career. “It’s so inspiring to see Christie back in the issue and looking incredible,” she said. “And it just really shows you, no matter your age, you always have your youth and your spirit with you.” Upton added, “It always feels great to be a part of Sports Illustrated, but especially this year because of what the issue is all about. Having woman of every shape and size and beauty and every age of beauty. It just felt really special when they asked me to come back for this issue.” See the video below of Upton’s “Today” show interview.
