Meet Sports Illustrated’s 2015 Swimsuit cover model

(WTNH) — Sports Illustrated’s annual Swimsuit Edition arrives in mailboxes and hits newsstands next week, but we already know who’s gracing the cover. 24-year old model Hannah Davis gets the 2015 featured spot.

Davis was surprised by the announcement on Sports Illustrated’s SI Now digital show yesterday.

This year’s cover shot was taken at Blackberry Farm in Tennessee. The setting is one of the reasons Davis was surprised her shot was chosen for the cover.

“I told my mom there was no way I’d get the cover,” Davis said. “I told her ‘They do beaches for covers and I’m on a farm. There’s no way. It’s not possible.’”

Davis is dating a guy you may have heard of — retired New York Yankee Derek Jeter. They’ve been together for about two years, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.

This year’s Swimsuit Issue also features a plus-sized model. Sort of. A bikini-clad Ashley Graham appears in an advertisement for the online swimsuit company swimsuitsforall.com to promote the company’s #CurvesInBikinis campaign.

“I think that you can be healthy at any size and my goal is to help and educate women on that,” Graham wrote in an online fashion magazine.
