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.
Other models who have previously covered the magazine multiple times include Elle MacPherson, who modeled back-to-back-to-back bikinis between 1986 and 1988; Christie Brinkley, who also did three years in a row from 1979 through 1981; Paulina Porizkova, who did double duty in 1984 and 1985; and Tyra Banks, who covered the magazine in 1996 and 1997.
