Sports Illustrated has unveiled its 50th anniversary swimsuit issue cover and it’s smoking hot. Featured on the 50th anniversary cover is a trio of super sexy ladies including Lily Aldridge, Nina Agdal and John Legend’s beautiful wife Chrissy Teigen.

Fun fact, Aldridge is the first rookie to grace the swimsuit issue cover since supermodel Heidi Klum in 1998.

During the cover shoot, which was shot in the tropical Cook Islands just outside of New Zealand, Teigen tells SI, “It’s been many years that I’ve been doing this now and this was the first shoot where I was like, ‘This may actually have cover potential. We had this perfect water, perfect time of day, perfect light, perfect look, perfect suits, perfect everything. And with James Macari shooting, I just sensed it was going to turn out right.'”

Congrats to Teigen on her cover. We’re sure that hubby John Legend will find a special place for the issue in their Cali home. – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
