Kate Upton will grace the cover of the 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition

The great Kate Upton will make her triumphant return as she’ll grace the cover of the 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

The great one has finally a comeback, and no, we’re not talking about Wayne Gretzky.

Kate the Great, universally known as Kate Upton, will make her triumphant return to the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

For the 2017 version, SI has chosen Justin Verlander‘s better half to rock the cover (photos above).

Upton appeared on the cover for back-to-back seasons, 2012 and 2013.

Via SI.com:

It’s true: America’s favorite bombshell, the incomparable Kate Upton will grace the pages of SI Swimsuit once again! The blonde beauty we all know and love was shot by Yu Tsai in beautiful Fiji, marking the fifth time that Kate has landed a spread in the annual Swimsuit issue.

When she burst onto the scene in 2011, she was the little-known girl making all the buzz. Nowadays, she’s torturing dudes into asking why she chose goofy Verlander as her lesser half.

In any event, Elite Sports NY is extremely happy to see this. Greatness is back in regards to Sports Illustrated, ladies and gentlemen.
