Check Out The Cover Model For The 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

David Hookstead | Reporter

Danielle Herrington is the cover model for the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.

The news was announced Tuesday morning, and SI also released an emotional video of Tyra Banks informing Herrington of her incredible accomplishment. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

Herrington was a rookie in the 2017 issue but has clearly ascended to a much higher level this year. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

It’s not a bad pick from SI. However, I perhaps would have gone in a different direction. The rookies this year have been nothing short of spectacular. SI really could have shaken up the world, and gone with the likes of Alexis Ren. (SLIDESHOW: 71 Times Samantha Hoopes Stripped Down)

It would have been a bold choice that set the world on fire. However, Herrington is still very impressive, and I have no doubt that the issue will be flying off shelves with her on the cover. (SLIDESHOW: 60 Times Abigail Ratchford Wore Almost Nothing)

The issue was released today.
