Model and last year’s Swimsuit issue cover girl Kate Upton is once again gracing the cover of the issue for the second year in a row. She went to Antarctica to have the racy photos taken and now that the cat is out of the bag, she can talk about it! Congratulations to Kate, who joins the ranks of models like Tyra Banks, Elle MacPherson and Christie Brinkley, who have all enjoyed multiple-year spreads in the sports magazine.
Leave it to Kate Upton to keep fans warm through a chilly winter storm! The 20-year-old model will appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue for the second year in a row, it was revealed Friday, Feb. 8.
Upton’s super-secret cover was leaked online on Friday just ahead of what was meant to be its official unveiling on The Late Show with David Letterman on Monday night, but fans aren’t complaining.
“Congratulations Ms.@kateupton! Making history,” 2010 cover girl Brooklyn Decker tweeted as soon as word got out.
“We can finally talk about Antarctica!” Upton gleefully tweeted Friday evening. “Took us 2 months to thaw out.”
In the photo for the sexy cover, the bubbly model wears a white fitted coat complete with fur hood and a pair of tiny white bikini bottoms. Glaciers can be seen over her right shoulder.
It’s a far cry from last year’s cover, when the Florida-bred model got social media atwitter over her barely there string bikini.
