Kate Upton has landed the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover three times

In addition to becoming a three-time Swimsuit edition cover model, the 24-year-old Upton - who went to high school in Melbourne here in Central Florida - is featured on three different SI covers this year.

The campaign is now asking people to pose in their own swimsuits and explain the traits and aspirations they "model" to others.

That was something of a breakout moment for her (and released without her consent at the time, apparently), and she's since gone on to feature in, among other things, Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue.

Upton appeared on the magazine's cover twice, in 2012 and 2013, when she was photographed in Antarctica.

"We didn't start off with the idea of three covers, regardless of who was on the cover", said MJ Day, SI Swimsuit editor.

So just when it seems like Kate Upton is slipping off the radar she reminds us once again why she's one of the best in the business. "This publication is an excellent vehicle for generating awareness and creating a buzz among our prospective visitors, particularly in the celebrity driven USA market, where the association with high profile influencers and stars becomes significant over the short and longer terms", he continued. With that, her career really took off.

CW: I think it's awesome! Upton actually got three different covers this year, none of which feature a swimsuit top (which related to why Upton got the cover in the first place). Sports figures, like Simone Biles, are also featured.

At age 12, Upton was first scouted riding horses.

However, don't lose track of the fact Serena Williams is the real star of the show, and she always will be.

Speaking of Verlander, he's in Lakeland as Tigers pitchers and catchers reported for spring training this week.

The couple, who got engaged in May, still have no concrete wedding plans. "The thong is flawless, it really made me feel comfortable". In a video, she describes her shoot as "high-end Vogue vibes", and adds, "Getting on the cover of Sports Illustrated has completely changed my life". Upton called her appearance "inspiring".

"She was being a big f--king diva".
