Twenty-four-year-old blonde bombshell Kate Upton returns to the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. In an announcement made via Twitter last night, SI showed off three covers featuring the model who coincidentally is making her third appearance on the annual issue’s cover. Debuting as the Rookie of the Year in 2011, Upton graced back-to-back covers in 2012 and 2013 before nabbing the honor again this year. Before showing off her curves on the cover, she also took part in the SI Swimsuit Legends photoshoot. The photos were taken in Fiji and fiancée Justin Verlander wasted no time in taking to Twitter to express his excitement.
