Washington D.C. [USA], Feb. 15 (ANI): Despite the reports of on-set bad behaviour that made her fall out of favour, model Kate Upton has again landed herself on the cover of Sports Illustrated. The 24 year-old, for the third time in her modeling history, has earned the cover page of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, reports E!Online. The supermodel was revealed as the star of 2017 edition on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' The issue was directly projected onto the Empire State building. She did not know until the day before Valentine's, that she was on the cover again and said, "They're very difficult to read they totally ghost you." While sworn to secrecy, the 'Other Woman' star confessed that she had told about it to some family members and fiance Justin Verlander. She went on to grace the cover back-to-back in 2012 and 2013, which made her a household name. Last year's Swimsuit Issue had not one, but three different women cover the magazine, each with a different body type, namely Ronda Rousey, Ashley Graham and Hailey Clauson. (ANI)
