Danielle Herrington Covers 2018's 'Sports Illustrated' Swimsuit Issue

Celebrating body diversity.

By //Entertainment

Twenty-one-year-old model Danielle Herrington was just named the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model for 2018. The announcement was made via a surprise reveal by Tyra Banks. Born and raised from Compton, California, the rising star adds her name to the history books by being the third black woman to grace the cover of the annual publication which launched back in 1964. Beyoncé appeared on the issue in 2007 and Banks in 1996/1997.

“I can’t even believe I’m saying this. I am the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model,” Herrington told SI. “I can’t wait for everyone to see it. I’m emotional, but I just want to say thank you to everyone who believed in me. I put in so much work for this, and I’m feeling very accomplished, happy and excited.”

Watch the surprise video below. Herrington’s cover is the followup to Kate Upton’s Swimsuit Issue for 2017.
