As we recently predicted, Brooklyn Decker is the cover girl of this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. See her cover after the jump.
Brooklyn Decker was unveiled as the cover girl of the 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue on the Late Show with David Letterman last night. This is the fifth time the 22-year-old model has appeared in the magazine. The Ohio native and sports fanatic may be best known to sports fans as the wife of tennis player Andy Roddick. The two tied the knot in April 2009. Now Andy Roddick is likely to be known as Mr. Brooklyn Decker.
Brooklyn appears on the cover topless, wearing yellow bikini bottoms. The matching bikini top is draped over her shoulder in a photograph taken by Walter Iooss.
Here's what Brooklyn's bio on SI.com says:
Brooklyn Decker, 22, was born in Middletown, Ohio, and raised in Charlotte, N.C. She was discovered at 16 in a mall and began her career as the face of Mauri Simone. She has been featured in Teen Vogue, GQ, Cosmopolitan, FHM and Glamour as well as in campaigns for Gap, Intimissimi and Victoria's Secret and in music videos for Jimmy Buffett and 3 Doors Down. This is Brooklyn's fifth Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Brooklyn was ecstatic at being this year's cover girl. Soon after her cover was made official Brooklyn tweeted, "THANK YOU EVERYONE!!! I Wish I could respond to every single one of you but thank you so much for your AMAZINGLY sweet tweets!" She then added, "The issue is amazing, glowing, fun, the girls are happy.. it's not over-the-top, the girls and editors should be so proud! THANK YOU ALL!!!"
The 2010 edition of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue hits newsstands everywhere today, while Decker is expected to appear on Letterman's show tonight.
